Eileen Grimshaw and Michael Rodwell are to seek solace in each other’s arms – but will their moment of passion have fatal consequences?
With Michael having only just discovered that his son Gavin is really dead and Eileen reeling after her relationship hits the buffers, the pair will soon start to bond over a drink at No 11 Coronation Street. And, pretty soon, chatting is turning into kissing.
“They are talking about what has been happening to them both and there is a moment, a spark between them, and they kiss. It isn’t premeditated, it’s spur of the moment,” explains actress Sue Cleaver. “They’ve always got on really well when working together, but Eileen hasn’t really thought of Michael in that way before. So this has taken her by surprise.”
But seconds after the embrace, Michael will be seen struggling for breath and writhing in agony. Just what is going on? Find out more from Sue Cleaver here.
