Todd Grimshaw, who has a face like a cartoon character who has run into a frying pan, is coming back to what is known in circles where they don’t like to keep endlessly saying the words ‘Coronation Street’ as… the cobbles. AKA Coronation Street.
He will be bringing in tow a very rich boyfriend. Because that’s what happens when Weatherfield gays go down big London, they get moneyed boyfriends, who will bum them ragged and then slink off the moment civil partnership is mentioned.
Written by Jonathan Harvey (Beautiful Thing, Gimme Gimme Gimme), it provokes harsh reactions from Gail ‘has no chin’ Platt who calls him a gold-digger and Rosie ‘do my tits look big in this’ Webster, who likes the cut of the rich gay boyfriend’s jib. Or maybe penis in those tight trousers.
