Corrie Canada weekly awards for March 14 - 18
Musical ambience: Erica, Liz and Mary quoting Barry White with Al Green's Let's Get Together on the jukebox in the background. Superb.
Cold Blooded award: Steph. Can't stand the cold. I know how she feels!
Hyacinth Bucket award: Karen, sorry, Kareen who owns a garden centre and was very snobby and condescending.
The Morning After Award: Dev wasn't exactly all loved up and fretted that Erica might expect more of him than he's ready to offer. Be honest, Eileen advises and she's right.
Double Whammy: Eva got sacked and dumped!
Prodigal Son: I'd forgotten that Todd hasn't moved back home after his latest bout of forgiveness, he's always at Number 11.
Debate Venue fail: Crowded into a cafe? Really? Isn't this sort of thing why they invented Community Centres? I.E. RIGHT NEXT DOOR, PEOPLE!
