‘Gobby chav’ to be sister of Corrie’s Becky

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.

    Please, Becky as a character is bad enough, not a sister as well. Disgraceful slapper, always smoking, get rid of her. Consistently acted off the screen by Norris, Carla and other characters.

    Writer\’s really are struggling now if they dream up that thought right now – the Becky character needs more time-line space before she is zapped again? I know she is a brilliant actress but there is a touch of \’over kill\’ here. After Eastenders recent successes, perhaps the \’bosses\’ and of course the writers, need to reconsider \’plausibility\’ – even the Norris episode is stretching reality?I have watched Coronation Street for more than 20 years, and yes, I can even remember the cigarette hanging from Pat\’s mouth and the Flying Ducks on the wall with the murial – and Ena\’s hairnet 😉 I have watched Emmerdale since it started. In comparison, Coronation Street writers sadly are not as good at storylines and plots as the Emmerdale writers are. Emmerdale is still enjoyable and easy watching to help me unwind at the end of my working day. However, I still record Coronation Street if only to see what the storyline is and sometimes speed it up when it gets long and drawn out.Sorry Corrie writers but the plots and storylines lack a lot of \’follow through and plausibility\’ a lot of the time.
