Poor Jason Grimshaw (Ryan Thomas) will receive the shock news tonight that his dad Tony has died from a suspected heart attack – but you can see Eileen (Sue Cleaver) telling her stunned son first right here.
This evening’s double bill will see Jason left reeling when he discovers that Tony may have lain dead for up to three days. Blaming himself, the grieving builder will then be sent into a tailspin that sees him lashing out at his nearest and dearest.
Speaking about the upcoming scenes, actor Ryan Thomas said recently: “Jason’s devastated – his mum tells him and it’s complete and utter shock and disbelief.
“It’s very upsetting for him. It is completely out of the blue – it isn’t like he has been ill and they have been expecting it. It comes as a real shock and the knock-on effect is huge.”
You can watch the scene from tonight’s episode below. Beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of all next week’s drama on Coronation Street.
