The countdown has begun for the first gay kiss in the 40-odd year history of Coronation Street.
October 5 will see Todd Grimshaw plant a smacker on the lips of Nick Tilsley (Adam Rickett, pictured) after a boozing session*.
Corrie sources say the episode follows a troubled time for Todd (the lovely Bruno Langley), who has been "wrestling with his sexuality"**.
We're particularly tickled by this because Nick (Adam Rickett) doesn't reciprocate.
We simply can't imagine why Todd would think our Nicky would be a "friend of lowculture". Ahem.
But let's just hope that Todd's Platt-fest ends here. We don't think the world's ready for a Gail Tilsley/Mrs Robinson storyline just yet.
* And here we were, holding out our hopes for Emily and Rita.
** A phrase which now replaces "Doing a Ray". Try slipping it into polite conversation thusly: "Where's Todd?" "Oh, he's upstairs, Wrestling With His Sexuality. That's the third time today."

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses.
We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
