Episode Summary

Christmas 2008 (Double Episode)
Christmas Day dawns in Weatherfield with everyone preparing for the day ahead. One man with more to do than most is Tony Gordon who has the small matter of a body to dispose of before he can get down to celebrating. He tells Carla that there has been a break in at one of the properties and he heads for the factory. But there is a surprise awaiting him when he gets there.
Meanwhile preparations are under way for Christmas dinner at Emily and Norris' but Emily is not happy starting without Jed, whose bed hasn't been slept in all night. Tony is desperate to make sure it looks as though Jed has done a runner and he sneaks into the house to remove his belongings – will he manage to get everything out without getting discovered?
Meanwhile, It's a sad day for Maria who tells Fiz that she wants to go to the cemetery to visit Paul and Liam's grave. She is shocked when she arrives and finds that someone has beaten her to it and laid flowers already. She is disgusted when she realizes they are from Tony and Carla and destroys them before returning to the Street and letting Tony know exactly what she thinks of his gesture-by punching him in the face!
Over at the Platts the day has got off to a good start with Joe surprising Gail with an expensive watch. Gail has planned a party for later that day but as the Platts settle down for their Christmas dinner they are invaded by some early arrivals – the Windasses have got the timings wrong and turn up with party food forcing Gail to invite them to stay for Christmas dinner – much to Joe's annoyance.
By the time the Websters arrive for the party things have gone downhill somewhat and when Gary turns up David is seething as is Kevin . It isn't long before the whole thing has descended into mayhem with a catfight between Rosie and Tina and a punch up between Gary and David and this leads to Joe walking out – another typical Christmas Day at the Platts.
Christmas is a time to spend with your loved ones and Steve is desperate to get some time alone with Becky. He makes his excuses to get away from the Rovers and arranges to meet Becky at the cab office. She is delighted to discover he has decked it out as a Christmas Grotto and they settle down to share a few snatched moments unaware that Michelle is on her way over to try and find him.
Things are a lot quieter at Roy's Rolls where the dinner goes off without a hitch – thanks to a last minute donation and some help from Aunty Pam.moreless
