The many men of Eileen Grimshaw

With the news that Eileen Grimshaw is going to get a new fella, it's time to look back at those who have been loved and lost by Eileen.   
We know that Jason's dad is Tony Stewart - and has been played by two different actors. Eileen caught Tony in bed with another girl when she was pregnant with Jason. Tony proposed to Eileen when he found out she was expecting but she turned him down.

Todd’s dad was dependable and was making plans for them as a family when Eileen got scared and legged it. She regretted it afterwards. We've never seen Todd's dad, have we?

Dennis Stringer. Dennis took Eileen to Paris for her birthday but soon broke her heart when he fell for Janice Battersby. He left Eileen and moved in with Janice but he died in a car crash shortly after.

Harry Flagg, She dated Harry briefly after Jason and his girlfriend Candice put a "lonely hearts" ad in a paper on her behalf but they've decided they are just friends.

Ed Jackson.  Ed was revealed to be Ernest Bishop’s killer from almost 30 years ago.

Phil Nail. Eileen and Gail both became attracted to reflexologist (aka Phil the foot-fiddler) Phil Nail when he started working at the Rosamund Street Medical Centre, Gail was the one who eventually won his affections.
Pat Stanaway. Pat the Irishman (no, it's not a game) turned out to be dating six other women at the same time he was seeing Eileen.

Jerry Morton. Eileen dumped him after he had no time for her.


Jesse Chadwick. Eileen let Jesse move into her home, and she put up with his annoying parrot. However, she wasn't happy when Jesse began using her newfound sister Julie as his sidekick.  She dumped after he had a big win on the horses and used the money to take his parents on holiday.

Paul Kershaw. Paul the fireman was married and his wife Lesleby had Alzheimer's Disease, early on-set dementia. Paul proposed to Eileen and said he wanted to divorce Lesley. Eileen struggled to come to terms with Paul continuing to work in the fire service following the fire at the Rovers. Paul and Eileen agree it is best that they separate and Paul gets a transfer to North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.

If I've missed any of Eileen's many men, do please let me know!

There must be something in the Weatherfield water. My Mom & Dad have been married for 57 years and were each other's first dates.

Poor Eileen. She's her own worst enemy!

The only one who had chemistry with Eileen was Dennis Stringer. Here's hoping this new fella will have some of that.....

Eileen and Paul had absolutely no chemistry whatsoever! I couldn't stand the guy from the minute he appeared on screen. Perhaps Eileen would have a better chance of meeting someone suitable if she purged her house. Sean who must be at least 40 (who I really like)works two jobs and can't afford his own place? Jason and Todd as well. Come on. Time to move out boys. My son moved out to go to school at 18 and has never looked back. We are still very close but he has his own life 300 miles away.

I really enjoyed Eileen and Paul...after all they had been through...with Lesley's illness and death....too bad the writer's chose to write him out....

I agree Eileen would likely enjoy having the house to herself for a bit (especially considering how often she complains about too many people living there).

But she's always saying she doesn't have a lot of money, so maybe she doesn't have a choice and has to have lodgers to make ends meet. And when Jason moved out briefly because he couldn't stand to live with Todd, she was absolutely gutted.

What Frosty cannot understand is how she gets all these men! Middle aged, bitter and sour faced, not a particularly nice person full of sarky comments. Only in soapland!!

@Frosty - please stop beating up on Eileen. She's one of the warmest, wittiest, and best-meaning characters on the Street. What wrong has she ever done anyone? Moreover, the actress is lovely and willing to poke fun at herself.

Paul was terrible, terrible time in Corrie

Anonymous,I admit I agree with Frosty's comments about Eileen as she always seems to have a sullen face.On another blog,I posted how Eileen is slowly becoming like Janice,reveling in the misery of others,making nasty comments to Gail,joining the mob rule against Steve after the bus accident despite the fact he supported her relationship with Paul and didn't blame her for Leslie's accident like others did and more recently tried to get a family discount in Dev's shop from Julie who had no business working there in the first place.I cannot wait to see her reaction when the truth comes out about Todd destroying his brother's relationship as I'm sure he'll do the same to hers.
