CORONATION STREET

MONDAY, STV, 7.30pm

Pete loses battle..and son Simon

Another week in Weatherfield and another argument between George and Peter over the latter's drinking and him caring for Simon.

Okay, it won't win the award for most exhausted storyline - Joe McIntyre's debt problems are easily top of the tree there, but a few more weeks and it could steal the crown.

Peter is so incensed as he and the tycoon tear strips off one another, he winds up punching one of the policemen trying to separate them.

Poor Simon looks on as his father is led away in handcuffs, and after George is granted legal custody of the lad, he leaves his nearest and dearest frantic as he runs off.

Before long, Ken, Deirdre, Peter and Leanne are scouring Blackpool for the youngster. Meanwhile, Gail and Tina ponder Joe's funeral, and the raven-haired Kabin worker soon has a go at Bill and Jason for badmouthing her dad.

And in the Rovers, Nick's socialising with Underworld staff is interrupted when he is questioned by the police about the late kitchen fitter's demise.

On a lighter note, at least Fiz and John are getting on well with Chesney.

But for how long?

ALSO THIS WEEK...

If you suspected you hadn't seen the last of Ronnie's long-lost brother Danny Mitchell, give yourself a pat on the back as he returns to the streets of Walford this week.

This time, he's on a mission to win over his Auntie Peggy by helping her show Roxy who's the real queen of the Vic.

Caught on camera

RIVER CITY TUE, BBC1, 8pm

Being laid up is giving Molly plenty of time to put the finishing touches on her latest masterplan.

She's desperate to get Big Bob back home with her, and thinks that getting him fired from his community centre job will do the trick.

She steals his keys and heads over there to 'burgle' the place.

However, she fails to take the CCTV into consideration - and is spotted by eagleeyed Eileen. And Lydia is becoming increasingly concerned by Amber's behaviour, and during a row is horrified when she claims that Lee isn't her real brother. Lydia confronts Lenny about this revelation, but one thing you can be sure of is that he won't give a straight answer, But he will want to know why Ewan didn't kill him as ordered.

We wouldn't want to be in his shoes when Lenny catches up with him.

NEIGHBOURS MONDAY, FIVE, 5.30pm

Steph's in denial From the moment Lucas arrived in Erinsborough, it was clear he and Steph were made for each other, despite the fact he seemed to have eyes only for Libby.

He then had a relationship with Elle, and until last week seemed to still be hung up with her, despite the fact she's now on the other side of the Pacific. But this being Neighbours, emotions come and go quicker that you can say 'Harold Bishop doesn't live here any more'.

Lucas insists he's crazy about Steph and they should be together. She plays hard to get for about five minutes before succumbing to his charms. He even stresses his determination to get back on his feet (literally) for her.

So, everything is perfect in the Scully household then? Well, no. You see, Steph is suffering from a dicky tummy every morning, and instead of confronting the situation decides to do a runner. It's clearly all going to end in tears...

Perils of parenthood

Ian weighs up the pros and cons of adopting Lucy's child as his own

EASTENDERS MONDAY, BBC1, 8pm

Jane is desperate to be a mum, while Lucy is pregnant with a child she doesn't want - surely there's an obvious solution to both their problems?

Well, they certainly think so as they come up with a plan for the broody caterer to adopt her stepdaughter's baby. But while they may think their plan is foolproof, there's still one major obstacle - Ian.

Jane somehow manages to convince herself that her husband will approve. But, as most viewers would have predicted, he takes the news very badly indeed, telling his daughter she should have an abortion before storming off to confide his woes to Dot.

Once he's had a chance to calm down, Ian changes tack and with the aid of a cushion and a birthing DVD, tries to make Lucy face up to the realities of going through with the pregnancy. However, when that fails to put the headstrong teen off having the baby, Ian starts to come round to the idea of being a dad again, even if it does mean raising his own grandchild. Unfortunately, once Ian is on side, the Beales face another problem - what to do about the baby's real father, Leon.

Whatever they decide, they'd better act fast as Dot, who usually ain't one to gossip, seems to be having difficulty keeping this latest news to herself.

And elsewhere on the Square, Becca steps up her pursuit of Max by stealing his keys and posing on his dining table clad in little more than whipped cream and strategically placed fruit.

Pre-watershed this is going to have to be sensitively handled by the show's producers!

Anyway, for once the car salesman does the sensible thing and rejects her. But their brief dalliance could still come back to haunt him when Abi discovers a pair of lacy knickers behind the fridge.

Carol covers by claiming the undies belong to her and then warns Becca to stay away from her grieving brother

But Stacey's unstable mate doesn't seem like the type to take a subtle hint.
