Ruthless Pat Phelan (Connor McIntyre) looks set to take desperate action in next week’s Coronation Street after Todd Grimshaw (Bruno Langley) rumbles his nefarious scam.
Viewers have already seen Todd grow increasingly suspicious that Phelan’s building development isn’t all that it seems. And he’ll finally catch Phelan red handed in scenes to be broadcast on Friday 16 September after he overhears him cancelling the services of an architect.
Realising that Phelan is planning to sell flats that will never actually be built, Todd hurries to the Rovers to tell Eileen (Sue Cleaver) about her partner’s duplicity.
The trouble is that Phelan has already made a panicked phone call to his partner in crime Vinny (Ian Kelsey), who is quick to whisk Eileen away from the scene, claiming that Pat has a surprise for her.
Vinny will be seen delivering Eileen to Phelan at the Calcutta Road site and while she is left impressed by the scale of the supposed building project, Todd is feeling increasingly alarmed back on the Street after discovering that Eileen has vanished.
After Phelan announces that he has another surprise planned, Eileen is once again packed off in Vinny’s car. Phelan then returns to No 11 alone where Todd demands to know where his mum is. Assuring Todd that Eileen is sade, Phelan offers to cut him in on the deal.
But before Todd can react to Phelan’s offer, the police arrive to investigate his allegation of fraud and Eileen’s sudden disappearance. Todd’s tense as an unruffled Phelan is taken away. But will Pat now get his comeuppance? Or does the devious Corrie villain have another trick up his sleeve? And – most importantly – what has he done to Eileen?
