Jason Grimshaw is to leave Weatherfield for Thailand fearing that Callum’s mates are out for revenge. But little does he realise that Phelan is responsible for the intimidation.
Next week’s episodes of Coronation Street see the police become convinced that Jason’s dad Tony is Callum’s killer after Jason hands over his dad’s tool bag. And with Gemma warning Jason that reprisals could follow, he obviously thinks the drug dealer’s associates are responsible when his van gets torched.
But, unbeknownst to him, Phelan is busy furtively phoning a friend and thanking him for the arson attack. Dodgy Pat then tells Jason that perhaps he should take a break until the Tony scandal has died down – all of which leads to the heartthrob builder deciding to leave for Thailand!
Jason’s departure from Corrie can be seen on Wednesday 29 June when Eileen, Todd and Sean bid him an emotional farewell – Phelan giving a smile of satisfaction, of course, as the taxi pulls away.
But Phelan’s plan to empty Jason’s bank account and steal his business looks set to be stymied when Eileen calls at the yard and reveals that Jason has given her control of the business finances.
As Phelan is left barely containing his fury, just what will his next move be? Could Eileen be the next member of the Grimshaw clan that he seeks to target?
