Norris Cole (Malcolm Hebden) has been off our screens for quite a while in Coronation Street, but never one to miss out on a bit of meddling, he returns in the coming episodes and — much like he always does — he shows up in time to ask plenty of questions, as he confronts Ken Barlow (William Roache) on his short story during a Literary Society event.
Last we saw Norris he showed up on the cobbles for a brief period of time to visit Rita (Barbara Knox) just prior to her fall, but since then he hasn’t been seen.
However, with Ken having moved away from the street — which is no doubt news that left viewers in shock — it was inevitable that Norris would show up at some point to get the lowdown on what’s going on.
In the coming episodes, Ken gets wind of a Literary Society talk planned for later that evening, but when Felicity reveals that Roger has had to pull out of the event — and therefore it might be cancelled — Claudia (Rula Lenska) volunteers Ken to take his place.
Therefore, Ken takes to the stage and reads aloud one of his short stories, as a proud Claudia watches on. Afterwards, Felicity asks the audience if they’ve got any questions for Ken, and the first to raise their hand is none other than Norris.
With Ken’s talk somewhat in ruins after Norris’ contribution, he suggests they head to the bar. While there, Norris reveals that he and Freda moved into Stillwaters several weeks ago, and — while ensuring Freda can’t read his lips — he admits to Ken that he can’t stand Stillwaters and needs his help to escape, leaving Ken in shock.
Will Ken aid Norris?
