Murder in mind for Tony

Expect plenty of sparks to fly. Carla is back in Weatherfield - and she's feeling feisty.

She reappears on the day of baby Liam's christening, watching the gathering of well-wishers from her car. But it's only Tony who spots her and he's not thrilled about seeing his estranged wife, particularly not now that he's got his feet well and truly under Maria's table.

In an attempt to get Carla out of his life once and for all Tony calls on his old mate Jimmy, who we know isn't averse to leaning on people to help a friend in need.

However, when Jimmy tries to put the frighteners on her, Carla fights back, cracking him across the head with a candlestick.

It seems her and Tony could now be described as murderers. Clearly the duo were made for each other.


Cupid is ready to lock lips

There are more than a few villagers feeling the sting of Cupid's arrows this week. Unfortunately, his aim seems to be a little off lately as some of the pairings are clearly far from ideal.

First up are Mark and Faye. After endless months of teasing and taunting, Mark finally gives in and admits his feelings for her with a kiss.

However, in true soapland style, this comes just as Natasha decides she can put the past behind them.

Flirting openly with him in a way she hasn't done for a long time, she makes it clear she wants her husband back.

What a mess.

Then there are Nathan and Leyla.

His plan to snare her affections finally pays off and he gets her into bed. However, Leyla is shocked by her actions and worries what David will do if he finds out.

Third on the list is Charity and Cain, who lock lips after an argument. Will Debbie's parents get back together?

Last but not least are Holly and Aaron, an unlikely pairing, seeing how he made her an indecent proposal after having her father arrested.


Zeke's odd behaviour continues in Neighbours. Declan asks him to babysit India, and before long, Zeke is so stressed about it, he's doing some very odd things indeed. Harry notices - and writes an anonymous letter to Karl's medical column asking for help.


Charlie's fury

It just wouldn't be Home and Away without a truly horrendous supervillain stalking the streets, but charming baddie Grant could be one of the nastiest we've seen in quite a while.

Desperate to prove that he is a rapist, Charlie turns detective and looks for other victims. Angelo is concerned that Charlie's search is turning into an obsession, but the haunted young woman becomes even more determined to put Grant behind bars when she meets two women who claim to have been attacked by him.

She promptly goes off and kidnaps him!

Worried about her mother's frame of mind, Ruby searches for her - only to find her in a shack in the bush, preparing to torture Grant into a confession!

Hola lot of trouble


There are not many of us who haven't been affected by the credit crisis - even residents of Shieldinchs are feeling the pinch.

Business at Hola is going from bad to worse and Lydia can barely cope with the strain. She desperately wants to prove to everyone - including herself - that she can survive without Lenny.

Sadly, Lydia feels she's let her daughter down when Amber insists on deferring university so she can stick around and help.

Lydia also has a run-in with Scarlett, until the latter realises they have lots in common. Feeling guilty about falling out with Lydia, Scarlett pulls out all the stops to boost Hola's coffers.

Meanwhile, it's good to see Lenny is also struggling alone. However, he gets a chance to redeem his reputation by helping a young heroin addict.


The chips are down

There's a new member of the Ramsay Street family this week - a lovely puppy by the name of Bullwinkle.

He belongs to Callum, who buys him behind Toadie's back.

The lawyer decides to let his foster son keep the pooch in an attempt to teach him about personal responsibility.

Predictably, his plan goes horribly wrong, Toadie has to behave like a real dad for once, and we look set to say goodbye to one of the cutest critters to appear in a soap for a long time. On a more serious note, Lucas reaches absolute rock bottom.

Elle is determined to make his life a misery, proving herself once again to be a chip off the old Robinson block.

Patrick gallantly stays by his employee's side as she gives birth, and Heather is surprised to discover that even though the scan seemed to showshe was expecting a girl, she's actually the proud mum of a boy.

However, there's an even bigger shock in store as she summons the father to meet his new son George.
