CORONATION STREET MONDAY,STV,7.30pm Tensions rising in prison DILEMMA... Fiz Some areas of the press may claim that prison is a cushy number, but nobody really expects a spell behind bars to be all sunshine and flowers.

Poor Fiz does seem to be having a particularly tough time of it. We had been pleased when it appeared she'd made a couple of friends in Ruth and Ginny, but that's all come to an abrupt end.

Ginny is back on drugs, and when Fiz confronts Ruth about it, Ruth shows her true colours, threatening to beat Fiz up if she tells anybody she's the jail's dealer.

So when the governor offers Fiz a place in the mother and baby unit with Hope in exchange for information, Fiz is left to mull over a terrible dilemma.

Should she spill the beans so she can be reunited with her daughter, or save her skin by keeping quiet? Meanwhile, back in Weatherfield, Roy and Hayley pack Hope's belongings. But where is the baby?

So imagine how upset she feels when he tells Charlie they are actually married!

Unsurprisingly, Charlie is angry that Annie never informed him she was still wed, but is appeased somewhat after she admits she loves him.

But he isn't sure about her idea for them to make a fresh start away from Shieldinch. take of In fact, it could be Annie who's forced to move on - alone. her it's Sandy says something that makes her realise she must leave town - and soon.

Ultimately, Lynsey decides spending time away from the village might be a good idea - and only then Brendan realises she might be right about Silas.

Seaside showdown It promises to be a day of disaster on an outing to the coast EASTENDERS MONDAY,BBC1,8pm It's not often that Walford's residents get to spread their wings a little and leave the confines of Albert Square.
