Remind yourself of all the soap drama that was happening in Corrie, Emmerdale, EastEnders and Hollyoaks 10 years ago this week. So much has changed yet so much is the same!
When the cops found out that Claire Peacock (Julia Haworth) had been sectioned in the past they suspected her of starting the fire at the Peacock house and turned up to arrest her. Husband Ashley (Steven Arnold) tried to stop them taking her away and later she was released without charge.
Paul Connor (Sean Gallagher) wasn’t impressed when wife Carla asked Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) to go into business with her. Leanne was going out with his brother Liam (Rob James-Collier) but Paul knew her from when she was working as an escort. Awkward!
Paul threatened Leanne about getting involved with Carla and offered her money to pull out of their restaurant business partnership. But Leanne’s mind was made up and the deal was done.
Sharon Lambert (Victoria Hawkins) was enjoying her hen do and all set to become a footballer’s wife, but Paul Lambert (Matthew Bose), Val Lambert (Charlie Hardwick) and Diane Sugden (Elizabeth Estensen) weren’t impressed to see her flirting with the best man Ricky Walsh (Oliver Mellor).
Sharon’s big fairytale wedding didn’t go to plan when Val put her oar in and said bridegroom Dan McHerrons (Patrick Molyneux) football career was over as he was on his club’s transfer list. She was left with egg on her face when Dan revealed he was moving to a bigger club, but he had no desire to marry a gold-digger and dumped Sharon at the altar. Sharon was furious with her mum, obviously!
Scarlett Nicholls (Kelsey-Beth Crossley) was desperate to get Daz Eden (Luke Tittensor) to notice her so let Kelly Windsor (Adele Silva) give her a make-over. When she rocked up at the cafe with her face plastered with make-up and wearing one of Kelly’s dresses, Daz certainly noticed her… but not in a good way and poor Scarlett went home in tears. Men!
Chelsea Fox (Tiana Benjamin), with boyfriend Sean Slater (Rob Kazinsky) in tow, discovered her sister Libby (Belinda Owusu) was planning to run away for the night with Darren Miller. But after a word in the ear of their mum Denise, Libby’s romantic plans were scuppered.
Hairdressing salesman Warren (Will Mellor) was making waves with the Albert Square girls but he was clearly a nasty piece of work. Chelsea was jealous of the closeness between Sean and Carly Wicks (Kellie Shirley) and set Carly up on a date with Warren, but it turned into a disaster when he got her on her own at Pat Butcher’s house…
Sean Slater was hero of the hour when he got to Carly in time to save her from Warren’s clutches. Carly realised she’d been set up by Chelsea and told Sean to sort his girlfriend out. Then they gazed into each other’s eyes and kissed… Chelsea didn’t like that!
The chemistry between Nancy Hayton (Jessica Fox) and Jake Dean (Kevin Sacre) was sizzling and after a night out for Nancy’s birthday they ended up sharing a bed. Jake claimed it was innocent…
Josh Ashworth (Sonny Flood) and girlfriend Amy Barnes (Ashley Slanina-Davies) went on the run after Josh attacked Amy’s dad Mike in self-defence during a row. But the cops soon caught up with them and Josh was arrested for assault.
