Is Billy Mayhew being blamed for Todd’s hit-and-run on Coronation Street?
Todd Grimshaw of CORONATION STREET has acquired the label of Weatherfield villain after his lies and manipulation were revealed to the Street via a video. Despite having a few opponents, Todd’s biggest foe is Billy Mayhew, therefore may the latter be held responsible if Todd is the victim of a hit-and-run?
Todd (Gareth Pierce) takes pride in being cunning and getting his way no matter what it takes. But his recent deeds have caught up with him, and his friends and family have been left appalled after a recording of him bragging about his lies and deception was played at a public event for all Coronation Street residents to hear. He was on the verge of fleeing and establishing a new life when George Shuttleworth (Tony Maudsley) persuaded him to stay and redeem himself. But, according to official ITV teasers, Shona Platt (Julia Goulding) will hit Todd with her car while fleeing the scene. Will the police make the incorrect assumption that Billy is the perpetrator when the evidence is examined? After all, the vicar had the most to gain after Todd had injured and humiliated him.
Shona storms into number eight wearing just a robe and tells to astonished husband David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) that she hit something while moving his car in forthcoming episodes.
As Shona’s feud with Todd resurfaces, she revealed that she panicked and drove away, and actress Julia has explained how the incident occurred.
“Shona couldn’t sleep,” she explained. It’s around 5 a.m., and she enters the living room, opens the curtains, and notices that the hearse has left the house.
“Even though she shouldn’t be driving, she hastily grabs David’s vehicle keys and dashes out of the house in her dressing gown, PJs, and slippers, rounding the corner to collect David’s car and swiftly park it outside the house before anybody else does.
“She was in a hurry and her slipper got caught under the clutch, it was all very dramatic, and she hit something she doesn’t know what it is and she runs into the house.” Finding no evidence at the scene of the accident, the couple shrugs it off and hires Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) to repair the dent in the car.
Todd’s mother, Eileen, is in the meantime. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
