Coronation Street has got quite the mixed bag for Christmas this year with plenty of humour and cheer to be found and even some romance. But dont expect that goodwill to spread across all of the families and couples of the street as there is also a dollop of betrayal and revenge heftier than a spoonful of nans bread sauce.
Show bosses have teased the main players for the Christmas episodes and as Jenny Connor has vengeance in mind, Gina Seddon is keen on seducing her sister Sallys husband Tim Metcalfe.
Meanwhile, there are testing times for Sinead and Daniel Osbourne, the truth about Lewis Archer is on the brink of being exposed and Peter Barlow and Carla Connor get closer to that long awaited union.
A Corrie spokesperson teased: Affairs of the heart will set pulses racing in Weatherfield this Christmas as the residents of Coronation Street get into the festive spirit. But as families gather and glasses are raised, will there be peace on the cobbles?
Jenny fights back!
As her pain over Johnnys infidelity weighs heavily on her, Jenny hits the bottle, paranoid that her husband still has feelings for Liz. As she gets drunk, she stitches Liz up good and proper with a revenge plan, all while secretly stalking her with a tracking app.
But as her revenge spirals out of control, Jenny crosses the line – and there look set to be major consequences on Christmas Day.
Tim is struggling without Sally and, under the impression that his wife cheated, he is more vulnerable than ever to the underhand intentions of Gina. Gina is in the festive spirit and determined to give Tim a Christmas to remember.
But will it be for all the wrong reasons as her feelings intensify and she makes her move?
Audrey may live to regret placing her trust in known con man Lewis as Gail continues to warn her that he is up to no good. As Lewis declares his love, Audrey is on Cloud 9 – especially when she gets a surprise windfall.
Gail reckons Lewis must have his eyes on this new cash and determines to expose him to Audrey. But is she right – or is Lewis actually genuine for once?
Passion for Peter and Carla?
Fans have wished for it for a long time and old feelings will be stirred this new year between Carla and Peter. As they rake over their turbulent past, the pair reach a new understanding in the disused snooker hall that Peter wants to buy.
Temperatures rise as 2019 draws in – will passion follow?
Daniel brings hope to Sinead
A dark cloud hangs over Sinead but Daniel is determined to make her forget about her cancer battle and give her a Christmas full of joy and hope. He pulls out all the stops and gets the Barlows and Tinkers together for a vegan Christmas dinner.
Will Daniel succeed in giving Sinead a happy day? Or will her fears for the future overwhelm her?
Brians nativity disaster
Phil continues to put the pressure on a stressed out Brian to deliver a nativity which can be a showstopper – but the crafty and ambitious colleague is trying to undermine him at every opportunity.
Brian is burning the candle at both ends but definitely manages to put on a very memorable nativity that Weatherfield wont forget in a hurry…
Kates big mistake
With Kates desperation for a baby set to drive her to desperate measures – not least of all with an attempt to seduce Adam – her relationship with Rana will be on shaky ground.
As Kates actions leave their engagement hanging by a thread, will all be lost this Christmas? Or will the return of Imogen into the equation be the catalyst for them to sort out their differences?
