Coronation Street's Karen and Steve McDonald are in for more problems in the weeks ahead - when a TV quiz show and a certain Baldwin cause further friction.
It all begins on Sunday, when Steve drives Deirdre and his mum to London on the sly.
The poor boy does not realise that he is set to star on a quiz show in the capital, or that Tracy will be there.
As part of the show he is forced call his wife, who is in Dublin, to find out an answer. Karen, not understanding she is on the air, sends the studio audience into fits of laughter as she decides to treat the call as a saucy phone call.
With Karen's slightly risque help, the Barlow-McDonald team win big and head out celebrating. Predictably this leads to Tracy and Steve collapsing, drunk and exhausted, into her hotel bed.
When they return to Weatherfield, Steve embarks on a mad mission to keep his wife from the truth.
But Tracy bumps into Karen and tells her to watch out for her TV debut. However, fortunately for Steve, Karen decides that she hates the game show's host and heads off to the pub.
But how long will he be able to stop her finding out - and how does he intend to hide a 26,000 car?
