Corrie fire aftermath, Hollyoaks Clare, 'Enders concern, E'dale danger

By
Coronation Street's Sunita Alahan and Stella Price fight for their lives in hospital in the aftermath of the Rovers Return fire.

When an arsonist targets the pub in tomorrow night's must-see double bill (March 18), Sunita (Shobna Gulati) and Stella (Michelle Collins) find themselves trapped in the inferno - to the horror of their loved ones.

Miraculously, both women are rescued from the blaze and rushed to hospital, where they lie critically ill.

A Coronation Street statement teased: "It's touch and go for both women as their devastated families pray at their bedsides for their recovery.

"And Dev is faced with more heartache when it's revealed that the fire was arson and Sunita becomes the number one suspect."

Over on Hollyoaks, there's bound to be trouble in store as Clare Devine returns.

Clare (Gemma Bissix) heads back to the village following a chance meeting with Mercedes McQueen and Doctor Browning off-screen in Las Vegas.

A few days before Clare's shock arrival, Browning returns from Vegas with the bombshell news that Mercedes went missing during their holiday and he still has no idea where she is.

A sceptical Myra initially reckons that her daughter is just playing games as usual, but Carmel takes the matter much more seriously - fearing that Browning could have returned to his dark ways by killing Mercedes.

When Myra goes round to see Browning to discuss the situation, she is shocked to find Mercedes's blood-stained scarf while the twisted doctor is out of the room.

With the McQueens' worst fears seemingly confirmed, Browning finds himself under suspicion. However, viewers soon learn that Browning is innocent when he receives a frightened call from his fiancée, which leaves him fearing for her safety.

Later, a mystery woman in red posts a photo of a gagged Mercedes to Browning, which is shortly followed by Clare's reappearance in the village. After seeing her in Vegas, has Clare done something to Mercy?

Meanwhile, Emmerdale's Robbie Lawson makes the mistake of winding up killer Cameron Murray later this month, unaware of his sinister side.

Robbie (Jamie Shelton) has appeared desperate to impress Debbie Dingle in recent episodes, and this continues when she encourages him to get under Cameron's skin as much as possible.

Taking on this challenge, Robbie causes a stir at The Woolpack by openly passing his own bottle of vodka around, before making a number of nasty comments which earn him a drink in the face from Chas.

When Robbie is about to leave the pub, he spots that the cellar hatch isn't locked, so he climbs down to get his revenge. Keen to do some damage, he then starts smashing bottles of spirits on the floor.

Cameron (Dominic Power) goes down to investigate the noise and shocks Robbie by grabbing his mobile and moving towards him with a broken bottle. However, Robbie then pulls out a lighter and threatens to torch the place if Cameron comes any closer.

When Cameron calls his bluff, Robbie takes a chance and makes a run for it. However, Cameron follows in hot pursuit and soon he grabs Robbie, hits him and bundles him into the back of his van. Will Cameron kill again?
