JULIE JONES’ latest double episode of CORONATION STREET

Broadcasts Friday 20 September @ 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV1.

It’s Roy’s birthday and the locals gather in the Rovers to celebrate, but the festivities are tinged with sadness as Hayley realises this will be the last time she marks the special day with her husband. Eva thanks Jason for all his help, prompting Sean to suggest she fancies him, and Fiz moves her belongings into Tyrone’s house – but what should be a joyous moment for the couple is dampened by heartache over Hayley.

As Roy’s party gets into full swing, Hayley refuses to be defined by her illness and reveals there is still so much she wants to do. But her positive outlook is clearly masking her disappointment over Christian’s lack of contact. Eva and Jason escape the party for somewhere quieter, where they soon find comfort in each other’s arms, Chesney and Sinead look to the future as they spend their first night alone at No 5, and Tim deceives Sally in a bid to avoid her plans for a romantic trip to Paris.
