Emmerdale w/e March 7
It’s a wedding in Emmerdale this week (another one for my album) as Jonny and Paul get married – twice.
It’s the first gay marriage for Emmerdale so it’s definitely one to remember. Emily and Patricia make their surprise returns. Will anyone discover the second wedding is a fake? Meanwhile, under pressure from the De Souzas, Matthew sets Carl on Pollard to bribe their way to the refuse tender. Pollard greedily accepts five thousand pounds but on his return home Val snaffles the cash for their wedding fund.
Rosalind and Pollard go away for some hanky-panky and as she gives him a goodbye kiss, a mystery camera snaps the evidence. Has Pollard made a huge mistake? Lady MacBeth time now as Nicola frays the edge of the stair carpet, hoping that Donald will slip and fall. Am I the only person finding this storyline unintentionally funny? Paul is disgruntled to find Jonny’s friend Bev intends to extend her stay in the village. Ashley is unsure when Hilary presses ahead with Daniel’s funeral arrangements and worries for Laurel’s state of mind. An emotional Shadrach confides in Zak that he’s dreading Daniel’s funeral. Laurel and Ashley both struggle to cope on the morning of Daniel’s funeral. Edna discovers Lily back in the village, but it’s clear that the sisters have no intention of spending time with one another.

Coronation Street w/e March 7
Lovesick David has been sulking after his lovers’ tiff with Tina: I can see the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse heading our way any day now…Although Gail has reservations about Tina, she’s worried that being spurned could have serious consequences for David. However, Tina stuns Gail with some unexpected news. Yawn-time as we get more baby swap rubbish: Ryan is still unhappy about Alex. Over at the Grimshaws, Sean is still trying to come to terms with losing his child. Elsewhere, Harry ends up taking Kelly on the hot date she’d arranged with Dan. Corrie writers – you’ve got a goldmine in our Kelly. Can you please do something decent with her? Get her back with Lloyd and write them like a younger version of Jack and Vera – you know it makes sense. It’d be much better than watching daft stories about baby swaps and un-charismatic bookies.
Jason is puzzled when Sarah starts ignoring his calls. More boring-ness: it’s Clurrrrrr and Ashley time again. The shop is having financial problems he can’t afford Kirk anymore. When are the Peacocks going? Come on Corrie writers, get rid of them! Michelle confesses to Ryan that Alex is going to be staying for a while longer. Oh who cares! Along with many other fans, I said this storyline would be a mistake. And we’ve been proved right. It’s been handled in a terrible way and it needs to die as soon as possible. We go from one awful storyline to another as Paul is shocked when he’s bundled into the bookies on his way back to the street by Dan, who reminds him the deadline has passed. Yawn.
Also On Coronation Street this week:
Jack is suspicious when Dan asks Paul for a word
Clurrrrrrrr is worried about Chesney

EastEnders w/e March 7
It’s a busy week on ‘Enders for Steven and Stacey. She’s put forward for a fashion design course but will she go for it? Tanya plans her revenge; she’ll take Max back, but when he least expects it, she’ll run off with the kids. Sean’s in on it, but will he play ball? A bit of light relief with Heather and Minty – thank heavens for Heather. Shirley and Phil get on well, putting an idea in Ben’s mind. Errrrrr – where’s Vince? I thought Bobby Davro was supposed to be the next notch on the belt for Shirley? Tanya lays down her terms to Max, but will he agree? Hold in your vomit as the writers treat us to ‘Squeal’ Beale still struggling to cope with sexy Clare’s behaviour. Two words about this storyline: as if.
Ben sets about pushing Phil and Shirley together, but something suddenly shocks her and sends her out of control. Max, chuffed Tanya is letting him back into their lives, moves back in, but neglects to tell brother Jack. Shirley is on a self-destruct mission – but why? Ian comes clean to Jane about Clare. Stacey is annoyed with Steven but changes her tune later on. Self-destruct Shirley makes a fool of herself on Garry’s birthday. Jane enjoys making Ian work hard after his confession about Clare. She later gets her revenge on Clare in the Vic. Tanya and Sean are still an item but they’ve got to be careful….
