arrivals, departures and we finally find out whodunnit

Fair city: After many threats, Callum leaves Carraigstown (not with Charlotte 'cause she plants the charity money under his bed), which means Paul's on the receiving end of Rachel's wrath. Hey, Rachel, at least it's one less person to clean up after. Leo sets his face to 'thrilled' when a wanderer returns. Wayne and Orla are left shaken when Junior's health slides, while Kerri-Ann finds herself in yet another flap over Frank. Coronation street: Eva's off (the lovely lady who plays her is due a baby) - but not to New York with Jason; she's opting to visit her Nan Glo in France instead. Tony, meanwhile, is busy juggling Liz and Tracy, which is proving tricky given the latter is demanding a weekend away. Rita isn't as excited to see her foster child Jenny as Kevin is; Faye and Craig make the mistake of watching a birthing DVD; and Anna gets another serious dose of the green eyes over Linda. Emmerdale: Chrissie, concerned that Lachlan is gay, discusses it with new husband Robert - who, unbeknownst to her, has just been dumped by his boyfriend, Aaron. As it turns out, Chrissie should be worried about Lachlan - especially when it comes to Alicia. Nicola offers to bring baby Amba for a walk, and when they take shelter from the rain in a barn for an extended period, everyone assumes menopausal Nicola has hightailed it with Priya's little one - even Jimmy. Just when we were getting used to the new glamorous Rachel, she decides to leave.

EAstenders: Unfortunately, at the time of going to print, we STILL have no idea who killed Lucy (we've put all our money on Abi), or whether Peggy Mitchell manages to nail her 'live element' scene. Suffices to say, in the light of last week's shocking revelations, will things ever be the same again in Albert Square? DI Keeble arrives in Albert Square, but why has she come back? Mick arranges a surprise for Linda, but Nancy has other things on her mind… like the troof. Ros na rún: Bobbi Lee takes centre stage, while Eoin continues to charm.
