Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter the caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh.
Hey soapsters, here’s a spoiler for you concerning Coronation Street’s Claire and Ashley Peacock. Remember them? One of the most interesting Street pairings… Not.
According to The Sun, Clurrrrrrr will be left fighting for her life in a dramatic summer storyline after a blood clot kills her secret unborn child. The scenes will come following weeks of heated rows between booooring Clurrrrr and her equally dull husband Ashley, who’s unaware of her pregnancy. A source told The Sun: "It’s going to be a terrible time for Ashley. He realises how much his wife means to him – but is it all too late?"
In the scenes to be aired soon, a devastated Ashley will sob to pal Peter Barlow: "Please, she can’t die — she’s my whole world. And why didn’t she tell me she was pregnant?"
Well guys, are you biting your nails in anticipation? Or are you thinking about what shade of toilet tissue to buy, like me? I reckon the producers of Corrie probably got fed with the huge number of posts (from a certain MSN soap blogger) dedicated to the stifling dullness of the Peacocks and finally decided to do something to inject a bit of life back into their rather monotonous storylines.
So folks, this ‘dramatic’ summer storyline is a new blow for the struggling couple. Let’s face it, they’ve been through a lot over the last few years haven’t they? So, will Cluuuurrrrrrr and Ashley overcome this latest crisis, or is it the end of the road for the Peacocks? Well, as much as I’d rather watch a slow motion footage of paint drying rather than the Peacocks, somehow I get the feeling that they’ll live on to fight another day.
So, should the Peacocks be written out of Coronation Street? Have your say by leaving me a comment.
That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for more soap news and gossip and the results of last week’s caption competition. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.
