Here we go with July in our look back at this year month by month. If you'd like a full synopsis of everything that happened this month in Corrie, you can read the Corrie weekly updates website and our blogger Tvor's State of the Street for each month.
This blog post is purely my own highlights and lowlights for each month of the year so far. These are my own personal likes and dislikes for Corrie so do chip in with your own and remind me of anything major I've missed that happened during each month too.
So here we go with July 2012
Izzy tells Gary she's pregnant but not everyone's pleased as Owen erupts with macho concern: "You've only been

Tracy moves in with Emily and makes Norris' life hell.
Mary cosies up to Roy in the cafe while Hayley's out dancing. She puts Roy off his chess move and he dribbles piccallilli on his bishop.
Peter and Carla leave for a few months. Never easy to watch but compelling all the same, Kirsty's violence continues. She smashes Tyrone's framed photograph of Jack.
Marcus moves into Maria's flat and cooks dinner for Kirk who mistakes it for a date. "It wasn't a date," Marcus reassures him to which Kirk
replies:"It wasn't? But we had napkins!"
Ryan Connor returns all buff and hunked up. He's a cocaine freak and tries to rip off Underworld for compensation after faking an accident in the packing room.
Carla's brother - who
had been talked about in the past and called Darren - turns up and he's now
called Rob. Lots of hype leading to lots of disappointment for this
Streetcars have a fiasco fight with Fare Ladies when Tracy tries to sabotage Steve's business. Not even the wonderful Eileen, Steve and Lloyd could save this storyline.
Little FayE gets bullied at school.
Everything and anything with St Ella in it, which unfortunately was rather a lot, yet again.
