Scheming Todd Grimshaw looks set to cause more trouble in the coming weeks when he tries to break up Marcus and Maria’s relationship. In scenes to be shown on Monday 13 January, Todd will strip off after receiving a birthday gift of a shirt from Sean. After winking at Marcus, Todd will later corner the object of his affection and make it clear that he fancies him. But will Marcus be able to resist his charms? Actor Charlie Condou tells us more:
So, does Marcus fancy Todd?
Well, Todd’s a good-looking man and he’s very flirtatious and Marcus can’t help but be attracted to him. But he’s very wary and suspicious of him too. Initially, he’s very happy with Maria and doesn’t think too much about it, but he does fancy Todd.
Do you think Marcus has ever been tempted to cheat on Maria with a guy?
No, I don’t think he has. He’s not stopped finding other men attractive, but he’s been very happy with Maria and has never been tempted by anyone until now. In a way, his feelings for Todd take him by surprise. If Todd had just left him alone, then nothing would have happened. But he really sets out to get Marcus – Todd is very forceful and keeps chipping away and it starts to become very difficult.
And how does Marcus feel when Todd strips off, flirts with him and makes it clear he really fancies him?
Really uncomfortable. Todd takes his top off and he’s in very good shape and Marcus can’t help but notice and be a bit turned on by him. But it also upsets him a lot because he’s starting to have feelings for someone else.
