Eileen Grimshaw (played by Sue Cleaver) will go through a life-changing experience this week on Coronation Street. As Halloween beckons, she suffers a shocking injury that appears to have long-lasting effects on the Weatherfield veteran.
Spoilers for the ITV soap show how Glenda Shuttleworth (Jodie Prenger) calls at No.11 with a huge pumpkin to carve and display at the Rovers.
But an annoyed Eileen feels as though she’s treating her house like a workshop.
Eileen picks up Glenda’s pumpkin and heads out with it but as she strolls down the street, she collides with Gail Platt (Helen Worth) and trips over the pumpkin and knocks herself out.
George Shuttleworth (Tony Maudsley) and her worried pal Sean Tully (Antony Cotton) rush to Eileen’s aid.

Eileen then staggers in with the shopping and reveals her plan to do a cook-up for the soup kitchen.
Her son Todd (Bruno Langley) tells George there’s obviously something wrong with her.
