Not a merry Christmas for all. (BBC)

Extended scoop.

It’s time for Roy’s driving test on “Coronation Street.” Dot is horrified by how she has been deceived on “EastEnders.” Harriet’s nativity scene causes problems on “Emmerdale.” And Ruby tries experimenting with Trevor on “Hollyoaks.”

Coronation Street:
Spoiler alert: Carla and Peter are back in Weatherfield and Tina is not thrilled to see them together. She tries to arouse Peter’s jealousy by turning to Rob, something which can also help her get back at her old enemy, Tracy. Carla catches them at it and wonders whether or not she should rat her brother out. She does tip Peter off about it. After she has to break a date to go to Simon’s nativity play, Carla suggests that Tina take her place. Tina reluctantly agrees and Peter confronts her about kissing Rob.

Kylie’s antics get on Gail’s nerves. So much so that Gail decides to call a family meeting to lay down the law. Kylie’s not thrilled by this and continues to misbehave, causing a scene at Max’s play. Meanwhile, Julie’s family crowds around her as she deals with Brian’s betrayal. She contemplates whether or not she can take him back, but, by the end of the week, he’s leaving town.

Spoiler alert: While Carol is contemplating how she really feels about David, he’s left wondering how he really feels about Janine after Joey tells him something he didn’t really want to hear. As David ponders his future and whether or not he has enough charm to get Janine back, he’s suddenly given a jolt when some bad memories swim back during a visit to Pat’s grave.

Tina and Shirley start to make plans for the holiday, knowing that they will both be broke. Tina’s scheme to cheer her friend up goes sideways pretty fast when Linda shows up. She and Shirley quickly get back into their own battles. Finally, Shirley is left facing a ghost from her past. Meanwhile, Peter gets called out the second he steps back into Walford. Lola is sure that he wants to end things with her.

Lacey Turner is returning to the cast of “EastEnders.” She will be reprising the role of Stacey Branning early next year. Turner left the soap three years ago.

Spoiler alert: Things get sour between Jai and Charity. After she warns him about Noah, he starts making demands that leave her disturbed. She decides it is time to get some revenge on Jai. When she does, he’s left furious but does his best not to let on. Meanwhile, Priya winds up getting hurt when she’s the last person to find out that David and Alicia have announced their engagement.

Butler’s gets busy when a truck load of visitors show up. Moria is left dealing with the tension at the place, which is only made worse thanks to James and Zak. Across the village, Pollard is appalled when he finds out that Kerry is trying to get back at Val. The two women end up fighting over tinsel until a truce is finally declared. And Robbie and Katie start to think that something is wrong with Declan. The fact that he has gone missing with a shotgun is a big clue.
