In Monday’s episode, viewers will see Eva (Catherine Tyldesley) moaning about being single, when in walks Eric (Timothy West), closely followed by Gloria (Sue Johnston), who reveals that she’s back with a new fiancé.
But it seems that Eric’s focus will not be on Gloria for long. Says West of his character: “He’s drawn to Eva as he realises she is unhappy and he thinks she is a lost soul like he has been in his life. He doesn’t want to have a sexual relationship with her at all. He is far too old for one thing. But he thinks they might have some fun together seeing the world. She is funny and intelligent.”
Viewers can see Timothy West make his debut on Monday 18th February at 7.30pm on ITV.
