A deeply worried Kevin Webster [MICHAEL LE VELL] and Debbie Webster [SUE DEVANEY] prepare for a long night in the fridge.

Luckily, Kevin turns up at the last minute and whacks Ray over the head with a frying pan. Unluckily, Kev then ends up getting accidentally locked in the chiller with Debbie. But will confinement result in a thawing of tensions between the Webster siblings?

Johnny’s disturbing visions

Kudos on Corrie for attempting to do something original with a prison-based plotline. Usually, when a character gets incarcerated, they have to deal with a sadistic screw or endure a beating by the jail’s top dog.

But Johnny’s troubles are more mental than physical as he starts seeing visions of his dead son Aidan, as well as hallucinations of mice and cockroaches in his cell. When Carla visits, Johnny insists that she not breathe a word to Jenny.

Leanne struggles to stay positive

After trying to make an effort to stay positive for Simon’s sake, Leanne ends up feeling consumed by grief and admits to him that she’s struggling.

Simon [ALEX BAIN| tries to hide his concern about Leanne [JANE DANSON].

A further reminder of just how vulnerable Leanne is comes when she’s seen tapping in her card details into her laptop and booking a consultation with a TV psychic by the name of Crystal Moon. Feeding into her delusion, Crystal assures Leanne that the feather is a sign of Oliver’s love for her.

Viewers, though, are sure to be left fretting that Leanne is set to be fleeced of the little money she still possesses.
