April 19, 2022

SAM MITCHELL'S shock return six years after she was last seen in Albert Square will send tensions sky high as not many residents will be happy to see her.

Sam immediately gets on the wrong side of Kat Slater and Sharon.

Both are even more frustrated when the latter remains tight-lipped about why she's back and enjoys winding them both up.

Elsewhere, Jack is nervous to see Sam back and, although she assures him she'll only stay for a brief visit, he tells his wife Denise Fox their son Ricky deserves to know who she is.

Ricky was left by Sam in Walford following her last visit in 2016.

However, Ben will also come to resent his aunt as her true motives will be uncovered – and it could have everything to do with the family business.

    Bill Roache: Corrie was almost called something completely different

    CORONATION Street actor Bill Roache has revealed Coronation Street was originally supposed to have an entirely different name — Florizel Street.

    The actor, who has played Ken Barlow on the cobbles since the soap started in 1960, said the title was eventually changed because they thought it “sounded like a sanitary detergent.”

    He said: “It was called Florizel Street when we started rehearsing and everything. I remember coming in the room and saying Flor-aI-zel and a groan went up.

    “Apparently a lot of people had been not liking it and one of the cleaners had said it sounded like a sanitary detergent.

    “So the producer came in and said right, ‘I don’t care what name you’ve got, so long as it’s Coronation Street.’”

    Later on, she explains to Daniel that videos and images from her past are all over the school and she’s been suspended.

    Emmerdale's Meena may not be killed off

    Emmerdale producer Kate Brooks has said that one thing that won’t happen is that Meena Julta will not be killed off.

    Kate explained: “She has given us so much storyline recently that of course there is always that temptation to let her get away with it. 

    “A person who is capable of such heinous crimes and has no remorse can’t stay long in the village. 

    “They can’t continue on that path because there is no where else for her to go. 

    “We knew that we needed to draw a line under it, not just for the viewers but for our characters who are left. 

    “They need justice and need for Meena to be punished for her crimes. 

    “If they don’t get the closure then there is no way to move them on as characters, so we knew that we had to let Meena’s fate rest in the hands of the soap gods and so I hope people will be very satisfied with what she gets.”

    Emmerdale boss reveals secret inspiration behind Meena

    EMMERDALE boss Kate Brooks has revealed the secret inspiration behind Meena Jutla as the serial killer makes her final appearance tonight.

    The murderer – who is played by actress Paige Sandhu in the ITV soap – has proved to be a hugely popular character despite slaying three villagers during a year-long reign of terror.

    And now with Meena facing sentencing tonight, producer Kate has confirmed that Killing Eve assassin Villanelle was the inspiration behind the character.

    She told The Sun and other media: “Killing Eve and Jodie Comer has been a joy to watch and there are definitely elements of that in Meena, the way she enjoys the kill, and the flippancy they both have about death and people dying. 

    “They enjoy the process of seeing the life leave someone’s body, which is very dark, but that is what makes them so interesting. 

    “The thing we say when chatting about Meena is that when you are watching all these deeds unfold you kind of enjoyed it, even though it is heartbreaking for Liam and Charles actually you are almost rooting for this character because she does it with a sense of style and wit, and so there is this dark comedy with Meena too, again, similar to Killing Eve. 

    “Essentially these characters are irredeemable, but at the same time you can’t help but like them. “

    Kel Allen clears up rumour

    Corrie's Kel Allen has been forced to clear up rumour she's in her 20s – despite playing mum of 16-year-old.

    On the soap, Kel plays Laura Neelan, a tragic mum to a 16-year-old, but fans have been astounded after it was claimed the actress could be just 29 years old.

    It was claimed online that she was born in 1992, meaning that she would be either 29 or 30 years old this year.

    This has shocked fans and they took to Twitter to express their surprise at her age, with one writing: "If she is 28 then she's young to be playing the mother of a teenage daughter!”

    While another commented: "I've only recently found out that Kel Allen who plays Laura is only 28 years old. I thought that she was much older than that."

    Kel was then left clearing up the confusion and revealed that her name had been mixed up with paralympian Kelly Allen – and that she wasn't in her 20s.

    She said: "Some fun facts about moi…

    "I'm not 28, throw on another decade! I’m proud to be rocking it for the nana crew! FYI… I'm not a nana, just close to middle age. It's a northern expression of speech.

    "Let's do the math, Laura would have given birth to Kelly at the age of 11.

    "I never lost an arm in a canoeing accident… touch wood! I'm not an Olympian… if only!

    "The moral of the story… don't believe everything you read! Happy Sunday to you."

    Rhona kicks Mary out

    Marlon's health is at the centre of a new family feud as Rhona and her mother Mary (Louise Jameson) are at loggerheads this week.

    As Rhona goes above and beyond to take care of Marlon and show her support, Mary confides in Faith (Sally Dexter).

    She grows concerned that the stress of the life of a full-time carer will be too much to handle for her daughter.

    When she arrives home from the consultancy meeting, Rhona lashes out after seeing Mary with Faith in the pub.

    In Mary's opinion, this only confirms Marlon's move back home will only increase Rhona's exhaustion.

    This prompts her to make a horrific suggestion as she urges Rhona to reconsider her relationship with Marlon, advising her to separate.

    Appalled and horrified at her mother's insensitivity, Rhona throws Mary out.

    Will the mother and daughter ever get along?
