Things get too steamy

Things have been going pretty well for Lucas lately but sadly it seems no one has told him that in Walford this is usually a sign that your life is about to collapse.

His downward spiral begins on Monday, when Trina arrives at Jordan's birthday party, clearly high on drugs.

Lucas turfs her out but finds it less easy to reject her when she turns up at the house the next day, asking if she can use the shower - and then shows her estranged husband what he's been missing by dropping her towel.

Feeling guilty, the preacher goes round to the shed where she's been sleeping rough so he can bribe her to leave.

But when Trina insists she's going nowhere, Lucas lashes out, with tragic results.

Meanwhile, there is a typical soap misunderstanding when Mo accuses Charlie's Russian girlfriend of being in the country illegally.

Nathan's wallet gets a Caining

Cain has never been the sort of bloke to let anyone cross him, as Nathan discovers to his cost this week.

The drama kicks off when a desperate Ryan pulls up to the garage in the stolen sports car and asks for Cain's help. The latter agrees to take control of the situation, much to Ryan's relief.

Later, Cain arrives at Home Farm and tells Nathan he needs pounds 5000 to get rid of the car. Nathan reluctantly agrees and asks Mark for the cash. However, when he refuses, Nathan threatens to tell Will about his affair.

A concerned Mark is forced to cough up.

In the Woolpack, Nathan gives Cain the money and warns him not to come asking for more. However, the nononsense Dingle puts him in his place, warning him never to speak to him like that again - and if he needs any more cash he'll ask for it.

Meanwhile, Natasha is far from happy when Nicola brings baby Angelica into work, and Carl waits for Chas after the party. He reminds her how good they were together and things get interesting as she pulls him in for a kiss. Will they rekindle re·kin·dle

Hugo and Martha are driving along a back road to the farm when they come across the bus. With John's help, the pair miraculously disarm the bomb, allowing the passengers to escape.

Hugo grabs the device and hurls it into the bush in the nick of time but he and John are sprayed with shrapnel.

Kev and Moll get it on

Molly and Kevin indulge in a spot of post-race grease monkey business

CORONATION STREET Coronation Street is an award-winning British soap opera. It is the longest-running television soap opera in the United Kingdom, first broadcast on Friday, 9 December, 1960 in the Granada region of ITV.  MONDAY, STV, 7.30pm

When Molly returned from holiday recently, Kevin gave her a frostier reception than a wounded polar bear polar bear, large white bear, Ursus maritimus, formerly Thalarctos maritimus, of the coasts of arctic North America. Polar bears usually live on drifting pack ice, but sometimes wander long distances inland. .

However, all that changes this week when they take part in a charity race.

While Tyrone is - conveniently - busy on a job and Sophie dashes off to be with her mates the minute her dad finishes the race, that just leaves a hot and sweaty Kevin and Molly to recover from the run - with a close encounter in a hotel bedroom. Looks like their attempts to do the right thing have failed miserably.

With their affair back on, it's clear that Molly's desire for the mechanic proves harder than expected to keep under wraps.

Later in the week, during Kevin's surprise birthday party, Sally has a great time poking fun at her husband.

Mrs Dobbs finally snaps and has a go at her, which leads to one of the most tense dinner parties of the year. Meanwhile, there's a fete worse than death this week when Claire's DVT See deep vein thrombosis.  fundraiser leaves her so rushed off her feet she doesn't have time to check on Joshua.

During the local fete, Josh has been stung.

Luckily, first-aider Janice puts her beer down long enough to spot the problem. And, as the ambulance races to the scene, she puts Josh in the recovery position while Claire becomes understandably hysterical.

Then again, that seems to be Claire's default setting this week, especially when she finds out that Ashley didn't have the snip.

Poor Ash probably wishes he had gone under the knife when he sees what sort of crazed woman his wife turns into at the news.

And after deciding to leave his home of 26 years, Jack is faced with a tough decision - move into Connie's mansion or get a place of his own.
