Corrie heartbreak, 'Enders warning, E'dale Aaron, 'Oaks attack

By
Coronation Street's Paul Kershaw struggles to cope next month as he faces a dilemma over what's best for his wife Lesley.

Eileen thinks that Lesley should move into a care home as her dementia seems to be getting worse, but a heartbroken Paul (Tony Hirst) refuses to consider this.

Frustrated, Eileen (Sue Cleaver) then decides that their current situation can't continue and asks Paul to move back home with Lesley (Judy Holt) - unable to see a future for them if he won't listen to her advice.

Standing firm, Paul goes to pack up all of their belongings, but he's left distraught when he finds Lesley tearing up their wedding photos as she can't identify herself. Realising that he's losing Lesley, the fireman reaches breaking point and rushes out.

Returning home from work for lunch with Beth (Lisa George), Eileen is shocked to find Lesley crouched alone on the floor, with Paul nowhere to be seen. When Paul finally returns, will he now accept that Lesley needs proper care?

Over on EastEnders, Phil Mitchell tries to reclaim his authority on Albert Square following his release from prison.

When Billy explains how Derek Branning has managed to get his feet well and truly under the table in recent weeks, Phil (Steve McFadden) takes action by turning up at R&R and informing Derek that his services are no longer required.

Derek (Jamie Foreman) pretends to take this graciously, but in reality he has no intention of giving up on his interfering ways. Finding Ben alone on the Square, Derek then starts to question the teenager about his new-found truce with Phil.

Before Ben (Joshua Pascoe) can say anything, Phil appears and warns Derek to stay away from his son and his businesses. As Derek walks away, the two men take one last look at each other - is there a fresh battle looming for the pair of them?
