But what are some of Gail and Eileen’s funniest fights?

Coronation Street: Gail and Eileen fight in the street – 2004

The argument that started it all was in 2004. Gail’s daughter Sarah was going to marry Eileen’s son Todd.

However Todd started sleeping with his friend Karl and later confessed to Sarah he is actually gay.

Gail went to go for Todd, but his mum Eileen stepped in and ended up brawling with her instead.

As the two yelled insults at each other about their kids, Gail called Todd a “pervert”.

Furious Eileen gave her a smack and warned her to go home.

But good old Gail jumped on Eileen grabbing her hair. As Todd managed to break them up, Charlie and Jason came along and Gail said the famous line: “Oh here’s the other one, the rest of the village people.”

Gail and Eileen fight over Michael

In 2015, Gail and Eileen fought in the street once again over Gail’s husband Michael.

Michael found out Gail knew Andy Carver had been pretending to be his son Gavin and moved out.

He went to live with his friend Eileen. But when Michael told Gail that he and Eileen had kissed, Gail went into her mum Audrey’s salon and began to throw product bottles at Eileen.

Eileen left the salon and the two women began to fight in the street once again. The scrap was split up by Gail’s son Nick.

As Audrey, Gail and Maria sat in the Rovers having a drink, Eileen came to sarcastically wish her luck on her sixth wedding.

Eileen asked if kept the same invites and changed the name.

Whilst the encounter wasn’t as violent as their previous arguments, it was still very funny to watch.
