Soap Boix.

Coronation Street THIS is the week when we discover what Richard is really like. He's certainly a Tricky Dicky, but he'll even rob a dying man. The dramatic storyline is played out in two episodes on Monday, in which Richard realises that Duggie has cut corners on the house and conned him. Well, it takes one to know one... As the two men argue, tragedy strikes and Duggie is fatally injured. Richard is about to do the decent thing and phone for an ambulance, until he remembers the money stashed at Duggie's flat. So he lives his partner to die while he steals the money from his safe.

Toyah decides to finish with Sam, just as he decides to propose to her. It all ends in tears, of course, but at least it makes Sam drop his wet Mr Nice Guy routine. Tyrone is nervous about giving Harper a blank MoT certificate, but Fiz is thrilled to spend his ill-gotten gains.
