It's Christmas Eve on Coronation Street and everyone is in high spirits. The factory girls are in party mood and Carla tells them to go home and come back in their glad rags for the Underworld Xmas Bash (which will most likely take place in the Rovers) Tony stays to get the party ready and finish off some last-minute wrapping but he's surprised by a visit from a slightly tipsy Jed demanding more cash in return for his silence. Bad move. Next thing he knows he's being strangled with some lingerie, and not in a good way. Rosie celebrates her birthday with Gary Windass (and a bottle of fizzy plonk), while Joe is not feeling very festive having discovered that he has been evicted from his flat. Attractive.
