In tonight’s episode of the ITV soap (Friday, April 30) Todd tells Eileen that George sacked him, Eileen goes to have it out with him.

But when George tells Eileen that her son was ripping off vulnerable customers, her rage turns to embarrassment.

She returns home and tells Todd that George has agreed he can work his week’s notice.

Todd returns to the undertakers where George lays down the law, explaining they have a body of a young boy in the chapel of rest and he’d better show some respect.

Later Stuart, an old friend of Todd’s past, comes into the funeral parlour. He reveals that the little boy in the chapel of rest is his son and Todd is reminded of his little boy Billy, who died in 2004.
