Coronation Street fans have claimed that there’s something sinister and dodgy about George Shuttleworth.
Recently Yasmeen realised she needed to put the community centre up for sale in order to pay off debts that her late husband and abuser Geoff left her with.
In last night’s episodes of the ITV soap (Wednesday, March 3) George saw the for sale sign and wanted to buy the place as it was a good location for his latest funeral parlour.
Later he approached Yasmeen and asked about the property. But Yasmeen was already in a panic and worrying she would go to prison over her debt and rushed off to Speed Daal.
Eileen soon approached George and told him Yasmeen had been through a tough time. But George told Eileen he’d have to introduce him and Yasmeen properly.
Later she took George to Speed Daal to apologise. He pointed out the restaurant could be a good location for wakes before beginning to talk to Yasmeen once again about the community centre.
He said that it was the perfect size for the funeral parlour and kept mentioning it.
Eileen told George it was clear Yasmeen didn’t want to talk about selling the community centre and he said: “Well there’s a whopping great for sale sign that says otherwise.”
Soon Eileen and George began to argue. But fans were quick to point out that something was odd about George.
I like George but there’s something sinister about him. #corrie
