25th March2007: The night before the beginning of Tracy Barlow's trial for murder, Deirdre pushed Tracy to tell her what really happened on the night in question, when Tracy hit Charlie Stubbs over the head with a lamp twice, supposedly in self defence, resulting in fatal injuries. In only Coronation Street's second two-hander, Tracy told Deirdre about how she manipulated everybody into believing that Charlie was abusing her so that her self-defence story would be believed, with Tracy going as far as to injure herself and scream to make everyone worry about her. Tracy had wanted to take revenge on Charlie for having an affair with Maria Sutherland. Tracy then expected Deirdre to lie in court for her. Deirdre was hysterical.
Kimberley Taylor was an employee at Bettabuy supermarket who was engaged to Curly Watts. Kimberley ended the relationship and transferred to another store when Curly pestered her to have sex before marriage. They reunited through a dating agency a year later before splitting for good when Curly blew £2,000 converting his loft into an observatory against Kimberley's wishes. Kimberley was the daughter of Randolph and Brenda Taylor. She was an only child and had a strict, sheltered upbringing as her parents were old-fashioned church-goers. Kimberley met Curly in October 1989 when he became Bettabuy supermarket's assistant manager. On Curly's first walk around the shop floor, manager Reg Holdsworth invited him to point out where Kimberley had made a mistake in her shelf-stacking technique. Curly re-arranged the display so that it would be more eye-catching to the customer, introducing himself to Kimberley as he did so.
