31 December 2006 Episode of Coronation Street

Frankie (Debra Stephenson) and Jamie (Rupert Hill) are packing up before they leave for Spain to make a new start but Frankie’s distracted and agitated. Despite Jamie’s optimism, she’s still angry with him about his outburst in the pub and having second thoughts about whether they really will be able to escape their past when they start afresh abroad. Will Frankie be able to go through with it? When Jamie receives a phone call after midnight, he is horror struck to hear Danny’s (Bradley Walsh) voice. Jamie wants answers but Danny merely tells him not to worry about the factory, wishes him a happy New Year and hangs up. Will Jamie be able to pick up the pieces and move on?

After scheming to get Michelle (Kym Ryder) to give up her date with Sonny (Pal Aron) to work on New Years Eve, Steve (Simon Gregson) makes another attempt to seduce her with candles and champagne at midnight. However, Steve is gutted when his plan fails as Sonny arrives at the Rovers to see the New Year in with a delighted Michelle. Will Steve tell Michelle how he feels about her?

Eileen (Sue Cleaver) brings in the New Year at home with her granddaughter Holly. Much to her dismay, Jason (Ryan Thomas) is still refusing to take an interest in his daughter and is still insisting that she’s taken into care.

Elsewhere Vera (Elizabeth Dawn) is tiring of the ‘new’ Jack (William Tarmey) and wants her grumpy old husband back! And Tracy (Kate Ford) winds Charlie (Bill Ward) up when she threatens to play away with a fit guy in the pub. Will Charlie rise to the bait?
