It's been another busy week in Coronation Street this week. Time then, to look back at 5 things we learned that we didn't know this time last week in Weatherfield.
1. Adam Barlow's aftershave
"Could you and your aftershave do one?" Johnny Connor asked Adam when he was in the factory office. Much was made of Adam's aromatic aftershave and the fact he was wearing far too much of it, as those types like to do. It was an interesting point though - for else how do we know what the characters smell like? We see them, we hear them, we can usually guess their emotions from what they say, or keep to themselves. But we don't know what they smell like. And perhaps for that we should remain grateful, who knows?
2. Roy serves an unlikely sandwich
£4.95 for a Brie and Rocket sandwich might be the thing at the Bistro, but in Roy's Rolls? And it isn't the price that's the shocker, here, it's the filling itself. Brie and Rocket? we cried when it appeared on screeen, In Roy's? I don't think so.
3. Beth's fried eggs are evil
Poor Kirky, he damaged his tooth eating one of Beth's fried eggs. What on earth is she frying them in?
4. Liz is a legend
Okay, so we may have already know that Liz is a legend but what a send-off she got in the Rovers Return as she handed over her beloved pub to Toyah and Peter. An alcoholic in charge of the pub? What would Blanche say? What could possibly go wrong?
5. Garlic bread is the snack of all faiths
Good old Eileen, at least she made an effort. Putting on a Jewish tea feast for Nicola Rubinstein who came calling with a DNA test for Patrick.
