Extended scoop.

Roy has sad news about Hayley on “Coronation Street.” Kat waits for critical news on “EastEnders.” Rachel’s confession enrages Lisa on “Emmerdale.” And Theresa plots her revenge on “Hollyoaks.”

Coronation Street:
Spoiler alert: While Carla continues to refuse to give up on Peter, she’s hardly the only one. Tina manages to get his goat by encouraging his jealousy. When they get into a heated argument about it, Roy nearly catches them. Liz winds up being the one to remind the recently married man to step back and stay away from Tina. However, the barmaid does not appreciate Liz sticking her oar in and blows up at her. After a harsh lecture from Liz, Tina has a choice to make.

As Kal pushes Nick to regain control over his body, Leanne decides it’s time for her to take her old life back. She wants to move back in with Nick, which doesn’t sit well with everyone. Meanwhile, Kylie continues to misbehave and upset Max and Lily’s lives. Seeing how bad she is making things for her children forces her to realize it could be time to put what’s happened behind her. Down the street, Eileen’s house gets even more crowded when Tony shows up on her doorstep looking for Jason.

Philip Lowrie will be leaving Weatherfield and the role of Dennis Tanner behind in the summer of 2014. Lowrie originally played the role from 1960-68 before returning in 2011. A spokesperson for the show said the door will be left open for the actor to return in the future.

Spoiler alert: To protect her sister, Ronnie recruits Phil to help her get Carl out of Walford, and their lives, permanently. But her plan soon goes off the deep end. She invites Carl over and offers him five thousand pounds to get lost. That doesn’t go over well and she winds up clobbering him. This only makes it worse. Things eventually escalate to a full-on hostage taking.

Mick acts off-kilter after he’s sent an unanticipated invitation. He does his best to keep this quiet as he ponders how to respond. Everything else around the Vic is also thrown out of whack. Mick and Linda argue while Nancy struggles with her big day. The tension spreads to the customers and the atmosphere hits a boiling point when Nancy blurts out something the Carters do not want to hear.

Pop star Matt Willis will be playing Luke, Stacey Branning’s (Lacey Turner) latest boyfriend on “EastEnders.” He shot his first scenes last week. In other casting news, January will also see the entrance of Jasmine Armfield as Rebecca, the teenage daughter of Sonia Jackson (Natalie Cassidy).
