Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition
so get scribbling and make us all laugh.
What’s the news from soapland? Well – remember how coarse Becky Granger (Katherine Kelly) was when she first appeared on’t cobbles?
Back then, she looked like a mangy dog – and she acted like one too (who can forget the way she set up old mate Kelly Crabtree for an arrest charge?).
Anyway, Becky has now transformed into a Street fave so Coronation Street bosses will turn her world upside down by introducing a sister.
According to reports, Becky’s sister will be a mouthy chav of a teenage tearaway with a baby daughter. She will arrive in the summer after the adoption agency contact her about Becky’s application.
A source told The Sun: "Becky’s sister is really going to cause ructions. Since she arrived in Corrie, Becky’s own rough edges have been smoothed off and marriage to Steve has calmed her down a bit. But her sister is as fiery as they come. Bosses haven’t figured out a name for the character yet, but they’ve certainly plotted out what kind of person she is. A gobby, chavvy, troublemaker. Becky’s sister is very much a livewire and will be flirting with every man in the Rovers – including her sister’s husband Steve."
Let’s hope Steve keeps it in his pants this time around – for his sake. Becky will probably beat him black and blue if he strays with her sister. What do you think about this new development? Have your say by leaving a comment, but keep it clean please.
That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for more news and gossip and don’t forget to enter this week’s caption competition. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.
