Audrey's drinking comes under scrutiny in Corrie

And Shona leans on Rita to help raise Audrey's spirits.

As Audrey heads home from the shops after buying Sam’s new school books, Shona comments on the clanking of bottles coming from her shopping bag.

When Gail arrives home, she finds Audrey with a glass of wine and after Sarah suggests that she’s been drinking all evening, Audrey takes offence.

Later, Audrey complains to Gail and Shona that nobody trusts her with anything anymore so Shona, after suggesting Rita has a night out, urges her to ask Audrey to do her hair.

Rita’s dubious but agrees and persuades Audrey to put their quarrel to bed by giving her a hairdo. When Rita clocks her bottles of wine, Audrey's pleased when Rita merely asks for a glass.

As she finds Audrey and a freshly-coiffed Rita getting on famously, Shona smugly takes the credit. But when Audrey bridles at being set up, Rita’s patience snaps and, with a parting shot about her daytime drinking, she flounces out.

Coronation Street continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV
