What's Happening Corrie Life & Times










Tyrone Dobbs will be the victim of domestic violence when he's battered by live in lover Kirsty. In scenes to be screened in June Kirsty will notch up her 'bunny boiler' behaviour from psychological to physical.

DON'T SAY WE DIDN'T TELL YOU. Bookmakers suspended betting this week on who killed Frank Foster after they realised we had inside information that fingered the killer as his mum Anne. We've had loads of 'thank you emails' from punters and regular readers of our site who have made a lot of money and we are so glad we could help them and hope you were one of them. Here's the story:


Bookmakers yesterday suspended betting on who killed Corrie rapist Frank Foster after ­thousands of pounds was wagered following a suspected leak.

Money was piled on at Betfred after the ITV murderer was apparently “named” on the internet.

A Street source said: “Everyone has been playing ball and agreeing not to reveal Frank’s killer but it seems the whole thing has been blown on the internet."

The death of evil rapist Frank, played by Andrew Lancel, has been one of Corrie’s most sensational plots in recent years.

Viewers have been left puzzled as to who could have killed him – he had so many enemies there were plenty of people in the frame.

Over the next few weeks the drama peaks when the murderer is finally unmasked.

Frank was found dead in the Underworld factory on Monday after stitching up partner Carla Connor (Alison King) and dumping his unsuspecting but loyal lover Sally Webster (Sally Dynevor).

He also had run-ins with Sally’s ex-husband Kevin (Michael Le Vell) and alcoholic bookmaker Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne).

Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) also hated the slimy businessman and held a grudge against him for ripping off Carla in a factory deal.

Before betting was suspended Betfred had the odds of the killer at: Peter Barlow 6-1, Kevin Webster 6-1, Carla Connor 8-1, Michelle Connor 8-1 and Sally Webster out at 25-1.


Anne Foster will soon be unmasked as the killer of her own son and rapist Frank Foster. Anne does the deadly deed after overhearing him gloat to Carla Connor about raping her.

Anne is disgusted that Frank could lie to her about the rape and blames him for the death of her husband Johnny who became ill with the worry of Frank being tried for the rape. When she's exposed Anne will also leave Sally Webster to die and threaten to kill Carla with a knife. But don't worry folks the cavalry arrives in the shape of Kevin Webster. Kevin saves the day and distracts Anne long enough for Carla to grab the knife and the truth is out. Sally is saved and now that Anne is exposed as the killer all the other suspects for Frank's murder including Michelle Connor, Kevin Webster, Peter Barlow & Carla all kiss and make up.

ROYLE Family actress Sue Johnston is poised to ditch her slob screen hubby and take a new mumsy role — in the Rovers Return.

Coronation Street chiefs want her to join the soap as landlady Stella's mother.

Sue, 68 — long-suffering wife of Jim Royle in the BBC comedy starring Ricky Tomlinson — was last night said to be "keen" to sign up.

A Corrie insider said: "Everyone is thrilled. She's a brilliant actress. We can't wait to have a member of the Royle Family walking down those famous cobbles and enjoying a drink in the Rovers."

The move would mark a return to the ITV1 show after telly veteran Sue had a cameo role for a handful of episodes playing bookie Sammy Chadwick's wife in the early 1980s.

Long suffering Corrie housewife Sunita Alahan will be arrested for a breach of the peace after drowning her sorrows over her ailing marriage.

In upcoming scenes Sunita will end up being cautioned by police. She has a few too many when friend Stella Price offers her a shoulder to cry on and takes her to the Bistro for a drink. But it ends in tears when drunken Sunita jumps on the roof of a car just as its owner also leaves the Bistro. The owner calls the police, who arrest Sunita before carting her off to the station. When fed-up Dev (Jimmi Harkishin, 52) hears about his wife’s arrest he cruelly tells everyone: “It’s no surprise to me because she has finally lost the plot and I’m going to do nothing to help her. He cruelly adds, “A long cold night in the slammer will teach her a valuable lesson.”

Bleary eyed and it has to be said looking tartish... Helen Flanagan leaves a London nightclub Chinawhites after partying with her footballing boyfriend Scott Sinclair. Now we like Helen and think Weatherfield is worse off without her but we have to say we hope she doesn't spiral into being a full time WAG who thinks the best way to get noticed is to be pictured in the semi-nude. You're much better than that Helen.

Niiki Patel is being axed from Weatherfield again after boss Phil Collinson thought that her character Amber had run out of steam for now. Amber played a big part in the lesbian storyline that climaxed with Sophie Webster dumping Sian Powers at the altar. Sian has now also exited Weatherfield leaving poor old Sophie with no girlfriend at all! Ambers exit happens after she clashes once to often with step mum Sunita with the last straw being when Amber holds a party at home whilst she's supposed to be babysitting Sunita & Dev's twins.  

Just what she always WANTED. Michelle Keegan shows off a ridiculous 'bunch' of red roses sent to her by what's  his face from the Wanted. Sickening isn't it! We wondered what's in it for him?

Not looking too happy at being pictured  at poor old Frank Foster's funeral is Michelle, Carla & Maria. Get a life girls... if it wasn't for the press you'd all be out of jobs! Frank is murdered by his mum Anne after she discovers he lied to her and really did rape Carla. After Sally & Carla discover she murdered her son... Sally was knocked unconscious and left to die and Carla was threatened with a knife. Ecky thump... who'd live in Weatherfield!!!

Apparently Corrie minders had to call the cops because the hissy cast didn't like photographers being at the location shoot and they were policely asked to move on! CHILDISH OR WHAT!!!   

Is there a KILLER loose in the Corrie Studios??? CORRIE stars fear a maniac is loose on their set after a plug was tampered with to make it potentially lethal.

The soap’s top brass were astonished when staff discovered the rewired heater.

It had been fixed so it would give a “potentially fatal electric shock” if it was switched on. The culprit has not been identified and nobody at the Manchester-based soap knows why the appliance was tampered with.

While some think it was just a “do gooder” trying to fix the heater, others fear it could be someone with a grudge against the show planning a dramatic revenge. A memo has been sent to all cast and crew from head of production Robbie Sandison.

He explained the heater had not been checked by a professional for more than a year. And he warned: “Most seriously, all the wires in the plug were connected to the wrong pins. “The flex had been cut back with all the wires trimmed to length and the cord grip correctly clamped to the outer sheath so there was no outward sign of anything wrong. We don’t know when the reconnection was carried out or by whom. Luckily the supply was protected by a residual current device. However, not all the sockets are protected by RCDs and this could have resulted in one of us receiving a potentially fatal electric shock.

Despite Kym Marsh putting on a brave face about why her 'partner' and Hollyoaks 'cast off' Jamie Lomas is spending time away from her in America... we have been told that the couple are on the verge of splitting. Their continuing rows and his appalling behaviour to anyone that does anything he doesn't like, is said to behind the split. People living close to their Worsley home have said that Jamie's foul language and threats to other people in the area have made them public enemy number one and Kym is said to be secretly furious at how he is unable to control his vicious temper. He was recently overheard to deliver a loud foul mouthed tirade and threaten to kill a photographer who tried to take a picture of him and Kym with their baby. 

CORRIE headmaster Brian Packham gets floored by Kylie Platt — as he tries to "take-away" her stash of unhealthy food from the school gates.

FORMER Corrie favourite Katherine Kelly is thrilled by the rave reviews her new play is getting.The actress, who bowed out as brassy Weatherfield barmaid Becky McDonald just weeks ago, is romantic lead Kate Hardcastle in Oliver Goldsmith's She Stoops To Conquer at London's National Theatre.Katherine, who has dyed her hair brown for the role, told This Morning: "The reviews have been amazing. It's lovely being in a hit.

This man is not fit to head up our beloved Corrie. In many people's eyes Phil Collinson is a 'dead man walking' and rumours persist that he won't be producer for much longer. Hallelujah!!! It gives us no pleasure to agree with the school of thought that thinks it's time for him to be replaced. Lets get rid of him as soon as possible!
