Coronation Street fans work out Georges identity in sinister Eileen twist

Coronation Street fans reckon they've worked out George Shuttleworth's real identity, meaning poor Eileen Grimshaw could be in for a terrifying ordeal.

The Weatherfield undertaker, played by Tony Maudsley, let Eileen (Sue Cleaver) down when he snubbed her offer of dinner.

Instead, he chose to spend some time with his cat – but fans think he might have a sinister ulterior motive.

Viewers of the ITV soap reckon George might actually be murderer Pat Phelan's secret brother, and it might not be as farfetched as it seems.

Eileen was married to serial killer Phelan, before he died, came back from the dead and then actually died in nail-biting scenes in 2018.

And it has become clear that George seems to be hiding something from her.

Let's not forget too, that in episodes which aired last year, it was revealed that George still had Phelan's ashes at the undertakers.

His explanation was that, as nobody claimed them, he had to keep them there for five years – but fans reckon they've put the pieces together and have a fishy feeling.

One said on Twitter: "I've got a funny Phelan about George…"

Another wrote: "George is Pat Phelan's brother isn't he?"

And a third person added: "George Phelan?"

Eileen has started suspecting something herself, with episodes this week showing her thinking George might be having a secret relationship away from her.

It soon gets resolved, but it doesn't end there as Eileen turns detective in episodes to air next week.

George refuses to let her stay at his house, again using his cat Ridley as an excuse – but Eileen is not convinced.

She gets the help of Sean to snoop around looking for answers, but they're caught red-handed.

Eileen tries to tell George that they were trying to confirm his cat excuse, but he becomes angry.

Later, Todd tries to get to the bottom of things himself after he learns of Eileen and Sean's failed attempt.

Before long, Eileen finds out what's really going on and is relieved at the apparent misunderstanding, but it doesn't stop George from feeling uncomfortable about staying over.

He manages to stay the next night without a hitch – but could trouble be brewing underneath if he's still hiding one huge secret?

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV and the ITV Hub
