played by Timothy West - will try to seduce Gloria's granddaughter, Eva.
The Star says that in scenes to be screened in March, Eric makes a play for Eva, giving her a bit of sleaze along with an expensive bracelet and saying he wants to sleep with her.
Eric tells Eva: “Gloria’s a stimulating woman, but I don’t love her. I’m going to call off the wedding. (Me: Wedding? What wedding?) I want to spend my final years with someone I have a connection with, somebody like you.”
I hope this spoiler is one of those jokey moments on screen that comes and goes faster than a hotpot on a busy day in the Rovers. Because if it drags on, it does sound pretty sleazy, but still should be a good role for Timothy West. I know Gloria has her knockers on this blog (missus) but I can't wait for her return.
