Totally Todd James Grimshaw

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog June 2013, reposted to this blog with permission.)

With thanks to Corriepedia and Corrie.net, on the announcement that Todd Grimshaw is set to return to Coronation Street, here we go with a look back at the life and times of Todd James Grimshaw.

Todd first appeared on Corrie in January 2001 when he moved with his mum Eileen and older brother Jason to the Street.  His plan to take A-Levels was thwarted by his romance with young mum Sarah Platt, who had a daughter, Bethany. Eileen never forgave Sarah for ruining her Todd's life.

Sarah fell pregnant with Todd's baby, and they planned on getting married, but Todd began to question his sexuality.

He had feelings for Sarah's older brother Nick, and tried to kiss him. Nick told Sarah, but Todd managed to make up an excuse that it was just a drunken moment.

Then Todd began to have feelings for gay nurse Karl Foster, and they embarked in a relationship and slept with each other in Sarah's bed. Karl later left him when Todd refused to break up with Sarah.

Todd later confesses to Sarah about his sexuality, which causes her to go into premature labour. She gave birth to their son, Billy, but he later died in hospital.  Todd turned up for the funeral although didn't want Sarah to know he was there and hid behind a gravestone.

After being offered a place at Oxford University, Todd left Coronation Street.

Todd returned to the Street to visit a couple of times - in 2007 for his brother Jason's wedding to Sarah as best man...

... and again in 2011 with his rich (and annoying) boyfriend Jules where Todd became embarrassed by the Street he once lived on.  He made up to Eileen for his behaviour and went back to that London with Jules, where he's been ever since.

And now, he's coming back again... could be interesting!

Perhaps he was travelling with The Doctor in the TARDIS between the times he's been on The Street ;)
