Although it’s the holiday season, as our latest spoiler videos reveal, Coronation Street’s favorite characters won’t have much cause for celebration next week.
The inhabitants of the street with the same name are about to face more hardships in the ITV soap opera, with the week leading up to Christmas proving to be especially difficult for everyone.
includes the same first glimpse as before, with a fresh collection of snippets from the upcoming trips that tease the drama to come. Helen Worth’s character Gail Platt is adamant about getting the family together before the holidays.
However, doing so proves to be difficult because David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) is available to tease Kate about her prior rivalries.
Somewhere, Ed Bailey (Trevor Michael Georges) is viciously attacked, and Carla Connor (Alison King) learns something startling about Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) before he leaves.
We’ve got three videos this week to hold you over till your next trip to the cobbles.
This is what you have to anticipate!
Monday, December 18.
After some recent family strife, the Platt clan gets ready to go to the restaurant with Audrey to “hash their dirty laundry.”
David quickly suggests that Gail should treat Eileen in this manner, but Gail retaliates, saying that her battle with Eileen is more akin to a “feud” than a “grudge,” and she plans to carry that sentiment with her into the afterlife, much to the delight of her loved ones.
Inspired by the school’s “nice box,” where students jot down one kind thing about a fellow student and then anonymously place it in, Lily offers a “lovely box” as a means of resolving the disagreement.
Gail thinks that’s a really good idea and goes to get one for herself. Will it all work out, though? Or should we anticipate greater drama and conflict? Since we are discussing the Platts, I will conclude that the second choice is more plausible.
