It's Valerie's hen do!

As the girls gather for Valerie's hen party, Tuesday Le-Bow introduces herself as their burlesque dancer and instructs the group to create their own signature moves. There's strong competition but Valerie wins the prize – it is her hen party after all. Later, Valerie tells Karen how having cancer has inspired her to grab life - without it she may not have even been marrying Barry.

Barry arrives for his stag and is delighted that Rob's invited his best mate from work Gavin, but as Ross arrives he realises he's actually invited his work-enemy. Ross bullies Barry and he finally erupts – uninviting him to the wedding. Later, Barry praises Valerie for making him the man that he is and, as the men compliment their partners, Jimmi feels isolated.

Sid's friend Zach suddenly turns up and proposes - it's clear he wants to find a way to stay in this country. A patient, Alexa, overhears and offers to help him out, leaving Sid appalled when Zach asks her out for a drink.

I've always had a passion for TV and movies, and got my dream job as TV Times Listings Editor over a decade ago. previously I was interviewing celebrities on a freelance basis for What's On TV, TV Easy and TV & Satellite Week magazines. There's nothing better than going behind-the-scenes of TV shows to bring our readers on set secrets and gossip! As well as my main role at TV Times, I also write Coronation Street spoilers for and write daily On Demand reviews.
