Wimp Derek gets in a Street fight.

Soap's wettest hubby Derek Wilton finally loses his rag and attacks rival Norris Cole in Coronation Street's The Cabin.

The amazing bust-up is set to be watched by about 18million gobsmacked viewers tonight.

Wimp Derek, played by Peter Baldwin, goes for his ex-friend's throat after chasing him off the street.

And scheming Norris is only saved when Derek's dithering missus, Mavis, dives in to rescue him.

A spokesman for the show's makers, Granada, said last night: "Derek's temper has been brewing since Norris kidnapped his beloved gnome Arthur.

"The final straw comes when Norris accidentally scuppers one of Derek's business ventures, a stationery deal with Mike Baldwin's new firm."

The amazing storyline will introduce Norris, played by Malcolm Hebden, as a full- time character in Britain's most popular soap.

Norris and butcher Fred - John Savident - are among several new faces being brought in to boost cast numbers before The Street goes out four nights a week later this year.
