Coronation Street's Eileen finds her life in danger next week...

Coronation Street favourite Eileen Grimshaw would be forgiven for thinking that the drama in her life died a death with Pat Phelan... however next week's storylines see her in danger once again when Todd's nemesis arrives on the cobbles.

It has been revealed that Todd's comeback sees a new twist when his enemy, Mick, appears at Eileen's house, only for Todd to go into hiding.

"There's no time to think about it. Eileen just finds herself in it, with a gun being pointed at her.

"It's like her whole life is just in this bizarre world again.

"But she is determined that she can make it right and she thinks she can get through to this villain.

"She's really certain that she can make everything okay.

"Todd is saying to her: 'You're not going to make it okay, keep your nose out of it.'

"But Eileen being Eileen, of course she's not going to keep out of it. Of course they're all going to feel the wrath of Eileen!"
