Todd Grimshaw returning to Coronation Street
The official Corrie website reports that Bruno Langley will reprise his role as Todd Grimshaw.
Corrie bosses are staying tight lipped about why Todd has chosen to return, but it’s clear that whilst Eileen is thrilled to have him back, others are going to struggle with him being around. And his presence on the street is going to mean heartache for more than one Corrie resident..'
He was last seen in April 2011 when he visited Eileen bringing his partner Jools with him. But it soon became clear that Todd was embarrassed of his family and the street where he once lived. He left but apologised to Eileen for his behaviour.
Bruno Langley said: "Having worked extensively in the theatre for the past few years, I am very happy to be coming back to Corrie, getting back on screen, and working with my old cast mates again. Since I left in 2004 I have met many wonderful people, and done some amazing jobs, but best of all I now have a beautiful son Freddie Langley."
"Right now seems to be a great time to return to The Street, as I have just moved back to Manchester myself, and it's going to be interesting to see if Todd has changed after being in London for so long, as I have changed as a person too."
"I would like to thank our producer Stuart for inviting me back, and it's definitely going to make me smile when the Grimshaw family are finally back together again!”
I'd love him to get together with Marcus! What do you reckon, Corrie fans?
