EMMERDALE MONDAY, STV, 7PM Mixed show of emotion Following Jackson's death, Hazel is in need of all the support she can get, but not everyone in the village is understanding of her loss.

Although Bob is there at her side as she prepares to go back to Dale Head, Chas is less sympathetic as she worries about what will happen to Aaron. However, it's Ashley who delivers the biggest bombshell when he tells the grieving mum that while he can empathise, he can't condone her actions and she's going to have to find another vicar to conduct her son's funeral. Will he change his mind after he's confronted by an angry Aaron? Elsewhere, Charity has a consignment of TVs she's keen to get rid of, so Jai asks Carl to deliver them.

She stumbles across Lydia's will and discovers that all her money is going to charity. And instead of trying to manipulate the pensioner into changing her mind, or drawing up a fake, she says she respects her gran's decision and will be happy with just a few mementoes of her late mother.

Lydia is so impressed by this response that she drops a bombshell of her own, revealing that she had wanted her granddaughter to come to live with her following June's when work ex-soldier finds Will, becomes death, but that Frank and Pat wouldn't allow it.

When her grandmother dies, Janine is completely devastated, and Pat tries to comfort her.

The residents are supposed to be taking part in a parade, but first their Queen's chariot doesn't turn up, then the Queen rings in sick.

Amber thinks Fraser's van would make a good replacement, so she removes the mysterious boxes packed inside and takes it without informing him. What she doesn't realise is that the boxes are part of a dodgy delivery involving McCabe... Murray sees Jack flirting with Gina, and refuses to admit just how jealous he is.

Later, Jack becomes determined to outdo his rival whenever possible, forcing Murray to issue Gina with an ultimatum - to choose between the men in her life.

So, to say that soap fans are looking forward to her arrival on Coronation Street, is something of an enormous understatement.

Whether she turns out to be just as acid-tongued, manipulative and downright vile as Cindy remains to be seen - but rumour has it her character could have a secret link with a well-established member of the Corrie family... Collins joins the cast as glamorous Stella, employed by Steve to manage the Rovers.

Meanwhile, Tina is still in a vengeful mood after being betrayed by Graeme and Xin. As the couple prepare to flee the Street before the authorities descend on them, Gail tells Ms McIntyre that revenge won't bring Graeme back.

It proves to be an excellent arrangement, and it could turn into a longer term prospect when news filters through that Violet's recovery could take months, not weeks.

When Marcus suggests they get a flat together, Sean wonders if he's moving too fast.

GOSSIP Jack P. Shepherd has been dishing the dirt on his Coronation Street co-stars, and reckons Simon Gregson (Steve) and Alan Halsall (Tyrone) are the funniest, while Michelle Keegan (Tina) is the messiest, and Brooke Vincent (Sophie, pictured) has the worst taste in music!
