 of magical moments, oh, and I'm getting carried away.

So what's happening? Well, if you're sitting comfortably, I'll begin.

  • Bruce Jones (actor) - Les Battersby-Brown in Coronation Street
  • Bruce Jones (comics)
  • Bruce Jones (surfboards)
) is determined to make it a day to remember for all the wrong reasons, barring Toyah (Georgia Taylor Georgia Taylor (born Claire Jackson on February 26, 1980 in Wigan, Lancashire) is a British actress, best known for playing Toyah Battersby in the long running television soap opera Coronation Street from 1997-2003. ) from being bridesmaid, and inviting the local press.

Yes, Nick (Adam Rickitt Adam Peter Rickitt (born 29 May 1978 in Crewe, Cheshire), is an English actor, former singer and model.

His surname is frequently mis-spelled as 'Rickett', including once on the credits of Coronation Street when he returned in 2002.

But all this is topped by the storyline that's bubbling away and about to boil over to run over the top of a vessel, as liquid when thrown into violent agitation by heat or other cause of effervescence; to be excited with ardor or passion so as to lose self-control.

Over on Channel Four, Hollyoaks has Lucy (Kerrie Taylor) and her heroin habit back as a storyline again this week - oh goody, I can hardly wait.

And in Brookside Lindsey's (Claire Sweeney) life is in danger, blah, blah, blah.

Jimmy (Dean Sullivan) has his job back thanks to Karen (Amanda Humphrey). Jason (Vincent Price - I know, but it's true, honest!) and Katrina (Ann- Marie Davies) are engaged to be married this week, but he has some secret that may come out. Do we care? All he ever does is get so angry he turns bright red and foams at the mouth. A more unappealing character I can't think of. Ach, well, okay, I lied. There are seven of them in the Close actually - yep, the Musgroves. But this week Ryan (Sam Hudson) is arrested too - hooray, two down, five to go. They'll be gone yet, I tell you.

Racism rears its ugly head in the Close as well, courtesy of the appalling Ron Dixon (Vince Earl). Well there's an old storyline regurgitated. Brookside, do you have no new ideas at all?

I mean really Louise, poor love, could you not see this coming? It couldn't have been more obvious. Gianni's a bad 'un.

One good thing to happen this week is that Melanie (Tamzin Outhwaite) moves out of Ian's house. She might still be dating him though. And I just don't believe this rubbish. All normal, wimpy Wimpy
