Coronation Street Meets The Graduate
Coronation Street Meets The Graduate, Stella turns into Mrs Robinson when Rob makes a move in The Rovers but what will Eva have to say? Soap Preview 20- 24 August, It’s like a topic from a daytime talk show “My boyfriend prefers my mum”. And who else could the tawdry story be about than poor Eva? And of course, the man who’d be booed, face some kind of lie-detector test and receive a stern talking to from Jeremy Kyle is Rob. At the start of the week, he hears her boasting about getting Karl the sack and takes it as a warning sign. He doesn’t want her interfering in his work, so he’s not very impressed.
Later on that day, he has a few drinks with Stella in The Rovers and finds himself drawn to the glamorous barmaid. She is moaning about Karl and her broken heart and he reckons he’s got just the thing to take her mind off him – a swift bout of mother loving.
Stella resists his advances seeing as she’s Eva’s mum. But there’s a twinkle in her eye, even so and the pair are clearly drawn to one another.
Also this week: Tyrone is delighted when the police find where Kirsty is – but is gutted when they refuse to tell him where she is. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on what mood she’s in) Tommy plays detective and tracks her down.
