    Well! yesterday's {Mondays } episodes :Jawdrop

    Seems like Gary has "bought the farm" in Ukraine. An explosion , a body and his St Christopher . But is it really him ?
    Hmm . I have my suspicions.
    Talking of suspicions , Luke the garage mechanic has finally twigged on there is something strange about Andy's disappearance .
    Will he end up in the canal along side Andy . I hope not , it must be getting a bit crowded in there! :D

    Not enjoying it much lately ... I don't like Mary's son or his weird wife. I like it more when Mary & Norris are having a bit of banter, or Dev trying to show off to his latest GF or any story with Liz or Tracy (who are my faves).

    Billy & that Summer are just too irritating for words, Toyah is bland & The Rovers just isn't the same with her & Peter running it, David is boring & I miss his manipulative old ways ... I could go on moaning but I won't :D :D :D

    @anyone. How true to life is Coronation street?

    I'm asking this because that dirty word 'BREXIT' appears to be on the lips of just about everyone.

    Are they discussing the upheaval down the Rovers? What about down the knickers factory or the corner shop?
    Does anybody sit down and watch Eastenders on Coronation Street?
    Is the TV in the Vic' ever switched on for the punters to watch Coronation Street?
    Why don't the folks from Emmerdale's Woolpack ever arrange a darts tournament with the thugs from Albert Square, or is it just that the Dingle boys are all as hard as our Zak and the Walford wussies are really just pussies?o_O

    Anyone heard the spoiler about David's upcoming storyline? Sounds awful and upsetting and not what I watch Corrie for - a bit of escapism and light relief.

    I must admit that Billy's angst is irritating , get over it Billy. I will miss Todd though .
    Definitely agree about the Rovers , Toyah and Peter , could they be anymore boring ! Its good to see Liz back behind the bar .

    No .... it's going to be a rape storyline ..... bit too heavy going for Corrie IMO, I much prefer it to be slightly light hearted.

    Is Gary dead though?
    He might just turn up in a few years time when people have forgotten about him and say he was robbed in the Ukraine and his ST Christopher chain and passport was stolen.

    Phelan is in a tricky stituation at the moment.

    *spoiler alert*



    http://www.whatsontv.co.uk/latest-news/coronation-street-rape-david-platt-507049/


    It is grim, I've only just recovered from Bethany's misery and now this. It honestly makes me want to stop watching - I gave up on Eastenders a few years ago because it was so relentlessly depressing.

    I don't think we've seen the last of him...

    @stockwellcat. I have my suspicions. I dont want to give anything away but google will tell you .

    @Cleo38 :( I understand that they want to tackle issues such as this , but it feels that there are too many other horrible storylines at the moment . I wish they would leave it until the phelan storyline reaches its conclusion .

    @picaresque yes , way too much like Eastenders . I stopped watching that years ago .

    I'm glad someone has finally noticed that Andy is missing!! I mean, do they not have social media in Corrie? has Luke unfriended him on FB and so doesn't realise he hasn't posted an update in about a million years?/ Did no one think 'Bristol isn't that far away, maybe I'll go visit'. Hopefully it all comes out soon (Christmas storyline???) as Phelan is getting away with too much now.

    I do like evil David as it gives his character a bit more depth but I'm not sure about the next storyline :/ I get they want to cover that kind of thing but it does seem a bit much after Bethanys...

    I don't think Gary will be dead, but they'll not mention him for months on end and all of a sudden he'll come back after being through a kidnapping or something I reckon!

    I haven't watched Corrie properly for ages. Last time I watched it properly, he had been away working and come home, kicked off and slept with phalans daughter. What is Gary actually up to? What's the work he's been doing? Xx

    Gary has been doing armed diplomatic protection work in the Ukraine very dodgy and risky work but was earning alot of money from it. But there was an incident on Monday which indicates he maybe dead.

    He was doing security work in Ukraine working for an old army friend. he originally didn't want to do it as it was dangerous but he needed the money .
