In Cilla, Sheridan Smith becomes the latest star to take on the huge task of bringing a showbiz legend to life.
Coronation Street spoilers for week commencing 24 August
What's happening on the cobbles this week? Find out in our gallery taking you through the next few days of Coronation Street.
It's a week that sees Tommy (Chris Fountain) buckling under the strain of keeping what he knows about Kirsty to himself. When Tyrone accidentally scalds his hand, Tommy gets the wrong idea and panics.
In the latest twist, involving this surrogacy rot; It is being reported that a desperate Owen, resorts to bribing Tina, to replace youngest daughter Katy as surrogate for Izzy. "I can't do this for nine months," retorts Tommy. Tina reminds him of the debt and how this will square things.
I know that it isn't Tommy who'll be doing anything for nine months (which is obviously what's bothering him) but I don't believe that normal young relationships can survive such things. Much better left to an older anonymous woman! May the scriptwriters decree; that Izzy conceives and carries naturally, so that this ridiculous storyline can be brought to an end.
Has anyone else noticed Helen Worth (Gail ) has had her eye bags removed. Or is it a full face lift?
Whatever it is hopefully it will stop her blinking 100 to the minute....drives me crazy !
How she's been in corrie for so long is beyond me as she's a dreadful actress....in fact almost as bad as Shobna Gulati ( Sunita).
I was astounded when she was brought back in and as for trying to imagine her as a femme fatale well, that's stretching the viewers imagination further than the moon and back !
RE SPAM BOTS .....
Leaving comments here and hoping MSN will read and act on them is like whistling in the wind.
The best way is ... bottom right of each comment click on Report .
Then click on send note to moderator....and leave a message saying how fed up you are with all the free advertising MSN gives to dating & sex sites.
It's also useful if you point out that many sites ask the poster to copy the letters they see in a box to prove they are not a spam bot.
If enough people do this MSN might start to take note.
The Surrogacy storyline is absoloute twaddle,Chesney is already an old man in this farce! I really think the scriptwriters need replacing with new creative people.Stop bringing all these new characters in.Seems the producers are desperate to keep the golden eggs churning out at the loss of any real credible people. As if Sunita would want to go in Rovers or Karl, Stella is a completely wooden person who can not express any emotion at all.Kirsty is just a silly storyline that's gone too far.Even Steve mcdonald has lost his comedic charm.I really think these people are not acting any more....there must be a thin line between the actor/ress and the individual that somehow blends in to a depressing repetetiveness.The fireman Paul is a nonenity.....Emily has only one storyline for ever and that is Paying her papers on time! How I long for another Stan and Hilda!
