Last night on Coronation Street, young Seb took a tumble from his window cleaning ladder and fell to the cobbles. Fortunately the ambulance wasn't stuck in roadworks on the ringroad and got him to th'ospickle safe and sound. Where he's going to find out next week that he's got HIV.
Ah, the joys of Coronation Street and hospital life.
Now then, as much as I enjoy a bit of hospital drama along with the best of them, I'm getting a bit fed up of seeing the inside of Weatherfield General.
Last week in Corrie we had not one, not even two, but three hospital scenes, all with different characters involved.
There was the storyline about Summer smoking the Spice cigarette.
There was the storyline about Chesney doing a runner from the ward after being told about Katy dying.
And there was baby George taken ill and the whole Appleton clan at the hospital too.
That's three hospital storylines in one week. Three.
And things don't look as if they're about to ease off.
We're still to find out what Rita's biopsy results are and that'll unfold next week too. Maybe Rita can pop in on Seb and say hello while she's there?
When Kate Oates was first announced as the new Corrie producer I asked Emmerdale fans on Digital Spy what we could expect from her in Coronation Street.
Loads of hospital scenes.
I thought they were kidding too.
