George comes to Todd's rescue as he continues to make enemies in Corrie

And will George and Eileen's inevitable romance ever get going?


In the cafe, Eileen is torn after George tells her that Todd spent last night kipping in the funeral parlour and she ought to cut him a bit of slack.


As a dejected Todd scours the rental property pages, he admits to George that it’s all out of his price bracket as he’s still paying Billy back for the stolen heat pump. And when Todd reveals that he still hasn’t found anywhere to stay, George insists he comes home with him.



George finds Eileen in the cafe and after admitting he’s taken a shine to her, wonders if she fancies dinner at the bistro. Eileen coyly accepts his offer, but when George overhears her tell Mary that she isn’t sure she wants to go out without someone who handles the dead for a living, George sends a text to cancel.


Furious, Eileen lambasts George for cancelling their date, but when he reveals that he overheard her telling Mary that he makes her skin crawl, she's left mortified.


But as Mary hatches a plan to get them back together, George is prompted to suggest to Eileen that they try again. How will she respond?



Meanwhile, fed up with the parking chaos on the street, Shona produces some homemade parking tickets and after Todd dumps the hearse outside No.8, she slaps one on the windscreen.


Todd tells her she is committing fraud and is annoyed to find the hearse covered in shaving foam. When Shona returns the invoice to Todd, she suggests he start building bridges with the neighbours rather than winding them up.
