|Like mother, like daughter|
1991 was a lonely Christmas for Reg and Curly so they raided Bettabuys for champagne and caviar. Alma decides that she doesn't realy love Ken - much to Mike's delight. Spoilt little rich girl Vicky suspects Bet of having an affair with Des. Now that would have been a disgusting storyline.
|Spiral perm anyone?|
All hell broke loose at the Duckworth household in 1993 as Terry sold his own son to the Hortons. Jack rewarded him with a punch on the face. Vera sobbed over the presents. Ivy fears that Don may be on the verge of suicide (well, she was a boring woman . . .). At the Rovers, Audrey gets drunk at an after hours party and passes out.
|Salaam, duck . . .|
By Christmas 1995 the Duckworths are owners of the Rovers and Vera finds the festive season exhausting. Andy goes out on a date with Maxine, Don buys Josie a bike for Christmas whereas Audrey refuses to buy Alf anything. The whacked out Duckworths have soup and a sandwich for Christmas Dinner!
It's another round of fun and joy in 1996 as Don tries to kill himself and rebukes Martin for having saved him. Vera flirts with Alec behind the bar and delights in making Jack jealous. An even more repulsive sexual encounter takes place - Curly and Maureen! She was driven to it by a tedious Christmas dinner with Percy and Maud.
|Well and truly stuffed . . .|
The Battle of the Rovers commences at Christmas 1998. Alec rules downstairs while the beleagured Duckworths remain trapped upstairs. Blanche tells Deirdre that she wishes she had a daughter to be proud of. Judy gives birth to twins, Leanne has a fit of jealousy over Nick's lovely new jumper and Sally warns Maxine to be careful around Greg.
|Happy never after . . .|
Another decade comes to pass, seemingly dominated by the Duckworths hitting each other, shouting at each other, gaining a pub and then losing it. Happy days!
