Sonia needs to remind herself that she cheated on Martin with Naomi.

Me neither. Viewing figures will probably be awful.

Some of the worst scenes I've ever seen! So cringe! Karen screaming CONGAAAAAAAAA at the top of her voice... who does that?! :lol:

Where did that ring even come from, the heist? How convenient :roll:

It does all seem rather convenient. I'd swear they've sifted through Lady Di's dog poo before to find something else.
I hope this doesn't mean that Halfwit is sticking around.

In case anyone else loves random stats:

- 9 main characters featured in that duff duff (Karen, Denise, Carmel, Jay, Honey, Sharon, Keanu, Ted, Joyce).
- Joyce’s first ever duff duff (no one cares, bring back Pam)
- most main characters to feature in a duff duff since Christmas Day 2003 where 36 regular cast members featured.

Karen is great!! But was one real cringeworthy moment :lol: :lol: :lol:

This whole heist story is really confusing, he somehow conveniently finds a ring worth £200,000 or so now they can save the pub, but if they do now how can Phil & co not realise what's happened??

I’m sure Aiden will realise and come back all “menacing”. I’m hoping not as I would like the heist storyline and the Carters having money issues storyline to vanish.

I don’t know what’s more embarrassing about this week: the stupid Aiden plot rearing it’s head; Ted and Bernadette playing chess; Masood and Robbie interacting.

But fair play to them for giving dull Johnny the dullest of exits. It’s a shame that character got ruined so much by the recast. Sam Strike did a great job originally.

They should have just finished the Aiden plot with the sale of the ring, and let the story fizzle out quietly not to be mentioned again. Mick getting kidnapped was so unexciting, I can't believe they're still dragging this out, I don't really even understand what the hell is going on. Far more interested in Masood and Robbie's samosa extravaganza.

^ That’s saying something. Masood’s return has been a letdown so far. He worked much better with Zainab.

I hope Bernadette has all the money and has been using it to pay for chess lessons.

That samosa storyline is awful (mainly because of Robbie, why did they bring him back???!!!)

Well that revelation at the end, what is really that much of a surprise???

There isn’t a single decent storyline at the moment. The stupid heist aftermath, Jonny’s non-event exit, Mick & Linda having kittens about The Vic, Mel’s pointless return, Kim and her DNA, Masood being a dick in ever way possible, Ted cheating at chess...

Seriously, where is any of it going?

Sharon taking the money might have been interesting if it hadn’t been dragged out for like a month.

We have Abi’s funeral/Lauren’s exit to look forward to.

I feel like the producers need to hype up a few decent storylines. Soaps are meant to be decent this time of year, have a summer slump, then get better but, aside from Abi’s death and Stacey/Martin, I haven’t seen anything decent.

Stacey and Martin was just a ploy for returnees - they’ll be back together in a few weeks. Did they forget Tina slept with Billy?

Probably. Poor, ditzy Honey. I still maintain that her and Jack would make a great couple. But I supposed Billy needs some sort of purpose.

Maybe Max could have Honey the. He hasn’t banged anything for a month, must be a record.

There's literally nothing going on at the moment, just silly little moments about samosa and chess.
