Episode 3248

Do you take this small fortune to be your lawfully wedded wife?

5th July 1991: Mike Baldwin married Jackie Ingram in a match made, for him, more in a bank balance than in heaven. Mike had lost all his money a couple of years earlier in a very unwise property speculation in Spain and was desperate to become a player in the game again. When rag trade owner Peter Ingram employed him, Mike started to set up his own business to undercut his boss but was easily found out. Ingram died of a sudden heart attack in the middle of an argument with Mike who immediately started to woo his widow, keen to get his hands on the firm. Ignoring all warnings, she married Mike at Weatherfield Registry Office and he looked to have succeeded in his nefarious plans. Nemesis was close at hand though in the form of factory manager Ralph Dobson who knew a rat when he saw one and investigated the books, presenting evidence to Jackie of Mike’s financial manipulations. Added to his woes was also the news on his wedding night from Jackie that her present to him was that she was selling the firm to spend more time with her new husband, the last news that Mike wanted to hear. The happy marriage lasted precisely one week.

Kylie Platt

Kylie

Kylie Platt in 2011

Kylie Platt is the wife of David and mother of Max and Lily Platt. Kylie was raised by a drug addict mother and abusive father. She resented her half-sister Becky Granger for leaving home when Kylie was eight, and was thrown out after falling pregnant at nineteen. Max's dad, Callum Logan, ended up in prison, and Max was taken into care as Kylie was homeless. In 2010, Becky tracked Kylie down and helped her regain custody of Max, but fearing she couldn't hack it as a mother, Kylie sold Max to Becky and Steve McDonald and left. She made a surprise return to Weatherfield the following year after meeting and getting engaged to David Platt in Tenerife, where she was working as a cage dancer. After getting married, the Platts won custody of Max and in 2013 Kylie gave birth to their daughter Lily - although there was uncertainty over her parentage due to a one-night stand between Kylie and Nick Tilsley. Arriving in the Street as an opportunistic thief, Kylie frequently pushed David to get what he could from his family - including Audrey Roberts's salon where they both worked - but matured as she was accepted into the Platt clan.
