Shelley’s Monster

by | 22nd, October 2004

‘WEATHERFIELD women are notoriously stupid Deirdre did time for an ‘airline pilot’ who turned out to work in Sock Shop, Rita’s husband tried to push her under a tram and let’s not even start on Vera Duckworth’s “Terrah”.

Shelley sees Gail’s face

But even by their standards, Shelly is a cut above the rest. First of all, she marries a bigamist and now she’s hooked up with a serial adulterer who also happens to have a sideline in wife beating.

Shelly is convinced that Charlie is the one, despite the fact that he’s slept with her mother and tried it on with Liz McDonald.

He’s also not exactly the most attentive of boyfriends, choosing to spend every evening out drinking with mystery mates and constantly disappearing on jobs (on the job more like).

Later this week, Shelly gets it into her thick head that Charlie is having an affair with Gail when he sees him disappearing into her house.

It turns out Charlie building a Wendy house for Bethany and Shelly is so mortified by her mistake, it gives Charlie licence to treat her worse than ever, resorting to beating her to keep her “in her place.”

Another Weatherfield woman who’s been conned by a man is Penny King, but for her it’s her pride rather than her face that’s taken the beating.
