Kelly (Millie Gibson) succeeds Gary (Mikey North) and demands to know what happened to her father

Soapwatch: ultimate insight from JACI STEPHEN into this week's soaps

  • On Coronation Street, Roy contacts Tyrone after a problem in the cafe
  • Meanwhile, in EastEnders, Jack would buy up half of Walford
  • In Emmerdale, Vanessa throws an engagement party for Pete and Rhona

The lack of locksmiths in soap country is something I have long complained about. Why more houses, with their limp locks, are not being broken into is a mystery; you could open just about any door with little effort.

Given the play with musical houses from soapland, the locksmith could also make a fortune by cutting keys; but have you noticed that when they move to a new place, nobody ever gets a set?

This week, on Coronation Street, Roy moves in with Tyrone after a problem in the cafe, while Carla and Peter go to Ken. How does someone ever get in and out if nobody has difficulty getting keys to be made?

It is the same in EastEnders. Jack is probably buying half of Walford, but he has never had a dialogue about picking up the keys to one of his properties. Then there is the game of musical stores / cafes / bars / restaurants / garages. Have you ever seen Kaffy with keys for the Prince Albert? Did Masood hand over the keys to Walford East to Max when he did a fiasco?

Come on, Timpson. You are the leading name in the key factory and locksmith in the country and have you not seen this opportunity for growth?

The Army was a walk in the park compared to Gary & # 39; s life in Weatherfield. How much more misery will they do to the man? As if he almost lost his life in the hands of usury shark, Rick was not enough, now he lets Kelly snoop around and demands to know what happened to her father. Gary becomes entangled in a web of lies that are so big that you should be Houdini to get yourself out. In addition to the Rick situation, Sarah tells Adam that she thinks Gary was involved in the collapse of the roof, creating a whole host of other problems for him. Why isn't he on the first bus out of there?

WORRYING CELLMATE

& # 39; Nice corners on your face. & # 39;

Prisoner for Nick, Corrie

The Eastern European conspiracy gets thicker when Eileen confronts Jan with his past (it's not about his mother's recipe for Polish sausage stew). Has she fallen for an error again? Duh! Does the UK work with Polish plumbers?!

Maria is still planning to have a love life, not noticing that Liam has not had food since Christmas. After another disastrous week with a man who likes to dress up like a dog (yes, really), she connects Ali and a bottle of wine. And we all know where that leads – as in & # 39; goes & # 39 ;, not & # 39; Let's walkies & # 39 ;.

EASTENDERS

HONEY SAVED

Adam (Stephen Rahman-Hughes) panics when Jack knocks on the door while lying in bed with Habiba (Rukku Nahar) in EastEnders. Will Adam choose one woman over the other?

Why do the people of Walford have such terrible beds? In fact, why do they have such terrible bedding that is never brought to the launderette to be washed? Adam and Habiba are at the moment under the filthy, unadapted linen, and when Jack clocks a half-dressed Habiba, Adam tells his lover – and that is not because she has not changed the sheets. Will Honey discover their secret? Will Adam choose one woman over the other? Or is this a storyline planned for a confrontation with the Christmas season? Ah, if only we cared about the pair. Well upset, I say, honey.

DISASTER ALERT

& # 39; I was just trying to help. & # 39;

Gail to Leanne, Corrie

The new Ben (a really impressive Max Bowden) continues to come under Phil & # 39; s skin when the latter is irritated by the irresponsible behavior of his son. The words pot, boiler and black come to mind. But what's really behind Ben's latest antics and why did he get into a fight? You'd think he would just want to hang out at Prince Albert every night – although frankly, if gay bars go, you'd see more action at the Trumpton Tavern.

It is hard to believe that there is another storyline going on for missing money. Is it the same MM from last year or a new batch? I lose count. Anyway, it's Phil & MM's again when the Slaters are horrified to learn that Phil knows they have the dosh. Phew. Keep up? And please, someone, buy a purse for Christmas, or a black horse with a large saddlebag from Lloyds Bank. Too much MM.

Emmerdale

FAMILY MATTERS

Blood is thicker than water. That is what David must think when Jacob comes to the hospital to support his father awaiting his results. How long will the bonding session be? If the previous evidence is something that passes, a nanosecond. And is that a potted plant behind David, or has he focused on wearing tribal headdresses? Just ask, because nothing would surprise me in that family.

Vanessa throws an engagement party for Pete and Rhona. But guess what? That joy is also of short duration, because the enormity of all this goes to the less fortunate couple. It's a party, for heaven's sake. Dump each other later!
