Hello and welcome to A Slice of Soap. It’s time to see what’s in store for us soap fans this week.
Coronation Street w/e September 5
So, has Teresa finally succeeded in doing away with Sinbad/Jerry? And if so, will we be watching him on the Albert Square set this time next year…(cos he does get around a bit does our Sinbad/Jerry)? Well, all will be revealed on Coronation Street.
Sinbad/Jerry’s still unconscious in ICU – poor man. Hasn’t he been through enough already? Being married to Teresa for starters. What a cow she is! Wouldn’t it be great if Cilla Battersby-Brown was still around? Can you imagine the arguments these two would’ve had? I have no idea what’s going on in Dev’s head these days. What’s he doing with Nina? She’s got him wrapped around her bling-tastic fingers. I hate to say this, but am I the only person who thinks he can do better? Anyway, he’s confused as Nina blows hot and cold – can he cope with her games? Gail tries to appear casual when Tina tells her she thinks her dad’s got a girlfriend. Sean has a bust-up on the phone with Marcus and Tom becomes his shoulder to cry on. Eye-eye! What’s going on there then?
Meanwhile, Roy has an unpleasant encounter with two customers in the cafe. Tyrone’s fed up of relying on Pam’s scams to boost his wedding fund until he hits upon a new idea….
Also on Coronation Street:
Tom and Liam need to find £50,000
Roy and Ken are questioned over a drugs deal
Mel’s devastated by Abi’s bad news
Emmerdale w/e September 5
Now as we all know, the fight for ratings sometimes makes soap writers write the most desperate things. Den coming back from the dead in EastEnders and Coronation Street’s yawnsome baby swap storylines are just two. But Emmerdale? Omigod. Emmerdale might just have topped them with this one. It’s been heavily reported that some of the stars are apparently upset with a storyline that sees one of its older characters contract a sexually transmitted infection. "This has to be the tackiest story of all time," said a source. Why? Well stick with the soap this week and you’ll find out.
On with the action and downtrodden Jo blames herself for Andy’s ill health. Marlon and Paddy attempt to sabotage what they think are Jamie’s cabbages. It’s a case of mistaken identity because it’s not Jamie’s cabbages. Nicola tries to use Belle to get another story out of Rodney. Matthew’s set upon by someone from his past brandishing a gun. The situation worsens when Katie returns early and ends up being held at gunpoint too. The village show descends into chaos; Terry’s furious that his vegetables are missing and blames Jamie. Carl is torn when Jimmy urges him to return to the Kings. Here we go: Doug’s had casual sex and, as a result, he’s scratching himself like mad. A disgusted Brenda calls the police on him. She doesn’t realise it’s cos he’s got crabs; I don’t know if I can watch….Rodney is suspicious and tries to suss out Nicola’s game. Will he get to the truth?
Also on Emmerdale:
Belle double-crosses Nicola
Doug asks Brenda for a date
Bob throws McNally out of the cafe
EastEnders w/e September 5
So. Did you think the scenes of Jase Dyer being killed were too violent? Hundreds of EastEnders viewers have complained that the pre-watershed episode of Jase’s stabbing by a criminal gang was too much for the time of night. In a statement, the BBC said: "Whilst we acknowledge that this was a particularly dramatic episode, we were very careful to make sure any actual violence was implied rather than explicit, and it was made clear from the outset that Jase’s life was in serious jeopardy." Yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever. This isn’t the first time EastEnders has crossed the line, and it won’t be the last time.
Back to the storylines and, unsurprisingly, Dawn struggles to pick up the pieces following Jase’s death. Honey finds bundles of cash in the flat and immediately suspects that it’s not kosher. Well, with a Jonah like Billy for a husband, you wouldn’t think it’s a lottery win, would you? Tanya and Jack return from holiday to find Max a changed man. Billy fights to save his marriage. Does he succeed? Let’s put it this way, Honey gets into a cab with the kids. Phil comes under mounting pressure from Suzy. Bradley prepares to celebrate his 21st, will he keep his secret from Stacey – and will she be able to keep Callum at arm’s length? Bianca seeks counsel from Christian when she questions Whitney’s sexuality. Stacey’s confused following her encounter with Callum and Billy sinks into depression.

Callum gets a trial on the fruit and veg stall
Dawn makes Garry an offer he can’t refuse
