Michelle and Robert are targeted with a horror attack in Friday’s first Corrie

Michelle scrubs the graffiti off the wall, while Phelan fits new locks to the Bistro door. Robert returns home and apologises to Michelle, explaining how he hit the casino, got drunk, was mugged in town and then spent the night in a police cell.

As Robert and Michelle approach the bistro, they’re horrified to see a youth hurling a Molotov cocktail at the door. As the door is engulfed in flames, Robert chases after the youth, leaving Michelle frightened.

Meanwhile, Toyah tells Leanne that she’s got an appointment with her IVF consultant. Gail summons Leanne to Number 8 and begrudgingly hands her a cheque from Nick for £25,000 as a gift from the sale of the flat. Leanne is stunned. Showing her cheque to Peter, insists she wants to fund their IVF.

Elsewhere, Tracy arrives with Amy in tow. Pointing out that they’re the same age, Tracy suggests Summer and Amy should hang out together. Before they can object, Tracy swans out and Summer is unimpressed.

Also, Gina opens her post to discover a stack of unpaid bills. Oblivious to Gina’s financial worries, Sophie reminds her about the money she owes her. When Gina is awarded a bonus at work for being the most productive factory girl, Sophie congratulates her, whilst Gina shifts uncomfortably.

Finally, Moira reprimands Liz for gossiping with Dr Gaddas when she should be working. Liz offers Moira some advice, but Moira is quick to put her down – telling her to stick to answering the phone. Liz fumes.
