First Pic: Jailhouse Rob

Rob will set the cat amongst the pigeons once more on Coronation Street when he starts calling the shots from his prison cell!

As this exclusive picture shows, Marc Baylis will reprise his role as murderer Rob Donovan from Friday 4th December when viewers will see him in prison.

Rob will send a number of visiting orders to some of our favourite Weatherfield residents, a year after he got sent down for Tina McIntyre’s, murder after being arrested on his wedding day to Tracy Barlow.

Rob’s reappearance spells trouble and it soon becomes clear that he holds the key to a huge Connor family secret, one that he could use to his advantage.

Marc Baylis said:

“Rob’s had a lot of time to think about things over the last year and ponder why he ended up where he is. He’s got a sternness to him, he’s a bit colder than he was before.

"Rob’s of the attitude that if he’s having it so hard for the foreseeable future then why should everyone else have it so easy. He feels that he’s been hard done by and he just wants a little bit of payback.”

What is Rob’s end game and could it throw a spanner in the works for Tracy and Robert’s relationship?

Poor Sarah's head is about to explode!

Kylie's relieved at first to see Sarah in a happier frame of mind but David remains unconvinced.

Then, after one-too-many drinks in the Rovers, Sarah accidentally stumbles into the path of Tim's van which opens up a whole can of worms.

Did David have anything to do with her accident? Kylie thinks so!

But that's nothing compared to the shock revelation the Doctor has for Sarah - will there be no escape from Callum's legacy?

Mary's Mother

Mother always said a swift kick to the unmentionables would do the trick but frankly I’m a lot more comfortable up at the throat end.

– Mary's mother on... self-defence

I wasn’t allowed to watch films like that as a child… Mother wouldn’t let me watch anything with robots. One of her little rules. Sex, violence or robots. Or talking animals… Avalanches, beach scenes, anything with Olivia Newton-John, volcanoes, monks, haunted vehicles of any kind.

– Mary's mother on... Star Wars

Did I ever tell you Mummy was psychic? …Six weeks before Amanda Burton left Peak Practice, she saw it in the bottom of her Horlicks. Now that’s a gift.

– Mary's mother on... the supernatural

Mummy wouldn’t go out after dark because of her fear of owls.

– Mary's mother on... nocturnal dangers

My mother always said there was something very Slavic about me… It wasn’t a compliment. Whenever I wore a headscarf she said I looked like I should be queuing for beetroot.

– Mary's mother on... fashion

I’ve always considered myself a student of life – although Mother reckoned I’d failed my entrance exam.”

– Mary's mother on... education

I once took a set of pliers to Mother’s chaise longue but it didn’t end well.

– Mary's mother on... DIY

Mother was once struck by a bolt that had fallen off the undercarriage of a passing helicopter... She had trouble remembering some months of the year after that and she developed an irrational fear of the colour yellow, so that was it for custard in our household. And she called me ‘Daphne’ occasionally, which was odd because she didn’t know any Daphnes.”

– Mary's mother on... an unfortunate accident

Whenever anyone used the expression ‘Always the bridesmaid, never the bride,’ my mother used to say, ‘Our Mary’ll never even make bridesmaid.’ She was right.”

– Mary's mother on... weddings

I’m turning into my mother. What a terrible thought. ‘Complicated woman’ is a polite way of putting it.

– Mary on... Mary's mother
