EMMERDALE

MONDAY, STV, 7pm

Flings catch up with Carl

Women beware! Charmer Carl King just doesn't seem to like keeping his relationships simple.

He's cheated so many times now that he should be in a members club, and after ditching wife Lexi for supposed true love Chas, he's been carrying on behind her back with dishy Eve Jenson.

However, Eve is more than a little miffed to see that Carl still appears to be head over heels with Chas despite having told her he plans to leave his unsuspecting girlfriend for her.

Unfortunately for Carl, it's not just Eve's ire that he is going to have to deal with as Chas finally discovers he has been cheating on her. However, Chas plots to play it cool and decides that she will take her revenge on both of the lovers, who remain completely unaware that she has caught on to their deception. You can be sure that whatever Chas has in mind, it won't be pleasant for either of them. Be very afraid.

EASTENDERS

MONDAY, BBC1, 8pm

Will it be au revoir Janine?

Janine's scheming has got her into some scrapes in the past, but nothing compared to her current predicament.

Not only is Ryan furious with her for kidnapping little Lily and then suggesting that they can drive to France together with the baby in the boot, but she's also managed to stall the car in the middle of a level crossing.

If that wasn't bad enough, the barriers are down and a speeding train is approaching.

Panicking, she and Ryan scramble to get out of the motor, but will they make it on time? Or is someone going to have to tell an already fragile Stacey she's just lost her daughter?

Back on the Square, Alfie gets the go-ahead to move into the Vic, and sets about organising the opening night. Not content with paying his rent, his new fairy godmother Roxy swoops in to help out behind the bar, but when Alfie tries to thank her with a friendly peck on the cheek, Kat gets the wrong idea and a fight breaks out.

To keep the peace, the landlord is forced to eject his own wife from the pub, but later makes it up to her by suggesting they renew their wedding vows. Kat is touched by the gesture, but it sets her on a collision course with another Mitchell sister, as Ronnie realises the ceremony will clash with her own wedding reception.

HOME & AWAY MON, CHANNEL 5, 6pm

Heartbreak

Whoever said the course of true love runs smooth had clearly never paid a visit to Summer Bay.

Life could be harder for Bianca - she's got two very lovely men falling at her feet. She's not going to score any brownie points with either of the boys by lying, but when ex-fianc Vittorio turns up, she cancels a date with Liam, saying she's poorly. Vittorio's full of apologies and all the right words for the way he treated her in the past, and Bianca finds herself in his arms, with a heartbroken Liam looking on. Can Bianca stop him when his thoughts turn to leaving his job and the Bay?

Meanwhile, Gina's not happy about John leading Xavier and April on, and wants him to own up to having known about the bus scheme all along. If John had his own way, he'd get a lot more mileage out of it, but for Gina's sake, he agrees to come clean.

Scarlett's baby blues

RIVER CITY TUE, BBC1, 8pm

Although women are supposed to bloom once they're pregnant, getting to that state can prove to be traumatic and stressful - just ask Scarlett Mullen.

After having the same symptoms she had at the start of her previous pregnancies, she becomes convinced she's having a baby, but is devastated when two tests turn out to be negative. Jimmy then persuades her to get checked out by her doctor, who thinks her symptoms may indicate something else...

Bob is back in Shieldinch but he's refusing to see his family. It seems he's only returned so he can sort out the garage lease. Despite trying to keep a low profile, Scarlett finds out and goes to see him, but he refuses to open the door, leaving her wondering what is going on.

Meanwhile Leo, another Brodie brother, arrives and instantly becomes a hero to Conor - which doesn't go down well with his father.

NEIGHBOURS MON, CHANNEL 5, 5.30pm

Mother of all rows

With Steph's bombshell still ringing in his ears, Toadie races to the country to prevent her from giving up baby Adam.

But poor Steph's pretty adamant, and even the man who nearly ruined his life for her sake can't stop her. But is there more to her decision than meets the eye?

Lyn can't believe what her daughter has decided to do after everything that has happened over the past few months and takes her anger out on the Kennedys. After all, their hatred of her was what drove her out of town.

And after a confrontation with Libby, it looks like Steph might be having second thoughts too. She tries to pack away the baby's nursery, but finds herself so overcome, that she decides to find a few distractions - one of which happens to be Lucas.

Libby can't believe Lucas has let himself get involved with her former best friend again, but he confesses he still loves Steph. Can Libby forgive him, especially given the recent history between the pair?

CORONATION STREET FRI, STV, 7.30pm

Remember, remember the fifth of November. You certainly will this week as the biggest dramatic fireworks of the night are saved until Friday as we finally discover who is the father of Molly's newlychristened child - Kevin or Tyrone.

When Webster finds out, he's far from happy and confronts his former lover with the test results.

However, as Sophie and Sian get carried away, they are caught snogging by the pastor. It looks like Sally is in for even more high drama. Elsewhere, it appears Liz has gone one step too far when she bars Ciaran from the Rovers.

But you can't blame Liz, considering Ciaran is planning mini hotpots for The Joinery's menu.

It seems the Peacocks' marriage has reached crisis point - again. Claire wants to move to France but Ashley's not too keen. Eventually he agrees to the move but she says it's just too late. And Steve is desperate to raise pounds 20k in a hurry. It looks like his only option is using the Rovers as a bargaining chip in exchange for Max, the child Becky so desperately wants to adopt. Given Kylie's track record, it wouldn't be too shocking if she did a runner with both the cash and her kid.

The Stapes' emotional rollercoaster takes another dip this week as the biggest skeleton in John's cupboard returns to haunt him. As most Corrie addicts know by now, there's a wreath at the factory and the former teacher wonders who sent it.

He also fears that someone is wise to his and Charlotte's deception - namely them dumping Colin Fishwick's body in Underworld's foundations. The fact there's a mystery phone call during a night does little to ease John's fears. Will the mystery figure expose Stape's secret or will the fastest liar in Weatherfield deliver more porkies to save himself?
