Coronation Street

S47E173 - Mon 4 Sep, 2006 [Episode 2]

Ashley can’t get hold of Claire but when he returns home she’s there waiting. She tells Ashley she had to stay with her mum and Ashley accepts this. But Claire’s calm then suddenly erupts when she spots a mark on the baby’s arm and thinks Hayley has harmed him. She flies round to the cafe and accuses Hayley of hurting the child. Ashley tries to reason with her and apologises to Hayley but this only serves to upset Claire more as she thinks Ashley is accusing her of doing it. Adam is pleased that Liam was able to help him out and buys him a drink in the pub. Michelle is intrigued with how much time Liam is spending around the Rovers until he confesses that he’s taken a fancy to the woman who runs the café. Liam is then gobsmacked when Michelle tells him that the café owner is a transsexual and when Frankie turns up at the pub he’s distinctly cool with her, leaving Frankie confused. Elsewhere, Chesney shows Cilla how to use the online auctions. Les is bemused to find her photographing their old junk but Cilla is convinced they’re sitting on a gold mine. And Violet suggests that she and Jamie move in together but will he be prepared to leave Frankie?
