Coronation Street

S50E16 - Friday 23rd January 2009 (Episode 1)

Maria is determined to get to the bottom of Jed Stone's mysterious disappearance and decides to confront Tony. Alone in the factory she accuses him of murdering Jed and is stunned when he confesses that he strangled him with a negligee and put his body in one of the hampers. As Maria stares at him in horror he describes how the Underworld staff partied around the hamper unaware that Jed's body lay inside it. Kevin and Sally are shocked when they open the morning paper to find a salacious article complete with saucy photographs of Rosie detailing her 'ordeal' at the hands of John Stape. Ashamed that Rosie saw fit to cash in on her ordeal, Kevin and Sally are left reeling when they discover a home pregnancy testing kit in the bin. When Rosie insists it isn't hers they are left with only one other explanation – one too awful to contemplate. Ken is another anxious and disappointed parent as he tells Deirdre that he has heard from Adam who told him that Peter is back on the booze in Portsmouth. Gail is worried sick about Joe and confides in Tina who finds him once more at his lock-up. She tells him he is being unfair on Gail and begs him to come home – will Joe listen? Elsewhere Eddie gets some more players to hand over 20 quid to sign up to the darts team.
