Coronation Street: Ed’s gambling addiction

Ed’s been struggling as of late as he’s spent huge sums of money on his gambling.

With his debts building up, the bailiffs recently arrived to take some of his things but he asked them to take his tools from the Builder’s Yard instead.

It wasn’t long before the yard then caught on fire, with Michael’s life being at risk whilst being trapped inside the burning site.

Coronation Street fans defend unpopular Bailey family

For a while now, fans of the ITV soap have asked for the Baileys to be axed from the soap. They’ve found them really boring and aren’t really fans of the gambling storyline.

However, after this week’s scenes, fans have praised the family for their emotional and realistic scenes. They’re now defending the family and have backtracked on previous hate for them.

One fan said: “Appreciation for the Baileys and show. I think the whole Bailey family were amazing last night especially DeeDee…”

Another person commented: “I think they’re doing better than most other families that were introduced at once. Yeah two of the original four have gone but that’s pretty good considering.”

A third viewer responded: “Must say I was impressed and thought Ed & Michael really redeemed themselves in this episode (and Dee Dee was good too). But alas I fear it’s short lived.”
