Will Aggie take a gamble on Ed? Lorna Laidlaw gives us her thoughts on what's to come for the Baileys...
How does Ed glue himself to the wall?
Aggie does this fantastic thing where if she wants something done, she pretends to do it herself so she pretends to put shelf up. Ed uses the glue and he learns against the window waiting for it to dry and he gets stuck!
So far, it hasn’t been mentioned why the Bailey’s moved to Weatherfield. How much of Ed’s gambling is to do with that?
This is the absolute explanation why - Ed has got a gambling addiction. He’s gambled before, and promised he’d never do it again. Michael takes the responsibility on his shoulders and take the blame for Ed.
Why does Michael do this?
He does not want his mum and dad to split up, which is so sweet. Aggie sees the signs but she doesn’t want to believe it because Ed has promised her he would never do it again. She thinks it’s alright because he promised. It’s absolutely heart-breaking.
How do you think Aggie will react when she finds out the truth?
She will be absolutely heartbroken. When I read it, I thought kick him out! But Trevor and I tried really hard to make you see how they work together, all of that is there before it starts to fall apart. I thought it was really important we show that.
Is Aggie fearful that the whole Street will find out that Ed gambled their house away?
Shame is a very big thing and nobody knows why they’ve come to the Street, they think they just moved in. This family is very good at keeping things close to their chest to protect the family.
Could this be the end for Aggie and Ed?
Everyone panics whether she’ll come back again and I think that’s right. She needs space just to compute everything. What do we want and what do we need to make this right again and I don’t think you can do that in the home situation. You need to get yourself out of it.
