Speaking to, Tony said: “George is innocent, he gets embroiled in it.

“He hides something from Eileen which gives her the biggest shock of her life; I don’t know why he doesn’t expect such a big reaction.

“Yes he is landed in hot water, poor George. This does involve one of Eileen’s most murderous old flames.”

Is he referring to Eileen’s serial killer husband Pat Phelan?
