Bev also spent some time working at The Weatherfield Arms. She was engaged to Fred Elliott, and was due to marry him in early October 2006 but he died on their wedding day before the ceremony whilst visiting Audrey Roberts. Bev never got over losing Fred before they married, and after controversially splitting his ashes into two halves, presenting Ashley with his share in an instant-gravy jar, she began to hit the bottle, quite often helping herself to drinks at the bar of the Rovers. When the McDonalds bought the pub, she moved in with Claire and Ashley, but relationships were strained between them. Bev finally agreed to move away from Weatherfield and join daughter Shelley at her pub in the Peak District. She moved during Christmas 2006, having scattered Fred’s ashes with Ashley.

Emma Watts (née Taylor) was played by Angela Lonsdale, who first appeared on 10 April 2000. Emma Watts was married to Norman (Curly) Watts on 24 December 2000 at the All Saints Church. They had one child named Benjamin born 26 December 2001 and lived at No. 7 Coronation Street. At the beginning she was credited as Sgt Emma Taylor, a police sergeant who helped solve the case when DC Simon Cavanagh was stalking Colette Graham and Curly Watts. On 12 October 2000, the police, including her, surrounded the Freshco’s supermarket as a siege developed inside. When eventually they burst in, Emma shot the main gunman, Dean Sykes - who died in an ambulance on the way to hospital. Due to her licence to kill, a trial wasn’t undergone (Dean had, in fact fired a shot and Emma had responded). Curly Watts took her out for a night on the beach, asked her out to dinner, they started a relationship, and eventually they married. Curly proposed to Emma on a bateau mouche in Paris and they married on Christmas Eve, 2000. Although their honeymoon to New York was delayed because Curly’s daughter, Alice, couldn’t return to Raquel when planned. Emma became pregnant shortly after their marriage and gave birth to baby Ben on Boxing Day 2001. Emma started working with partner Mick, who was dating Janice Battersby. Les was very jealous and they spent a lot of time winding each other up. Mick and Emma stopped Les in his taxi on a minor offence and after Les insulted Mick, Mick beat Les very badly but Emma promised to back him up even though Les did not really deserve the attack. When Curly found out, this caused a lot of tension and the two split up temporarily. Emma was feeling very guilty and planned to confess the truth to her superiors but at the last minute, testified and backed up Mick at Les’s trial, causing Les to be imprisoned for 3 months. Near the end of Les’s incarceration, Emma was put forward for promotion to Inspector in Newcastle. That would mean moving and Curly was afraid he’d never see Ben. He swallowed his principles and, in order to reconcile and be able to live in peace, away from Les, they put Number 7 on the market and moved to Newcastle. The pair drove off

In the days leading up to her departure, she began to suggest to Sean Tully that they take a break together, although it was apparent that she was just trying to wrangle a free holiday out of him (especially as she had just lost her job at the Rovers and had no intention of paying the rent she owed to Eileen). Sean returned from the holiday alone, explaining that Lauren, as expected, had abandoned him immediately upon leaving the plane once they’d arrived in Spain. She has now bagged herself a rich boyfriend and has no intention of returning.

Lauren had a relationship with Darryl Morton, but it was clear to everyone but Darryl that she was using him for money and free nights out on the town. Eventually Darryl stood up to her when she suggested he steal from his dad when he was out of money. Lauren immediately dumped him.

As a result she was dropped from the show less than six months after her first appearance.
