OK - he has a secret. But what might it be? He certainly seems to be living with someone - married? Other partner?

(Speculation not spoilers, please! or if you have a good spoiler - could you link it, not post the contents. Thanks).

I'm just watching the Omnibus and wondering about it myself.
I may have to wander over to Digital Spy and see what I can find out.

This link is a spoiler of sorts so do not look if you want some of the truth and some of the speculation.....

Can I steel myself and not click that link?

I like Eileen, and wish she could just find a nice, friendly, uncomplicated man and actually enjoy a relationship.

I wonder if his wife has a terminal illness and is keen on him finding his new partner before she dies so she knows who is going to be stepmum to their children.
I don't think that has been done before on a soap.

Isn't that a bit like how Ian beale got together with his most recent wife in EE ( disclaimer, haven't watched EE for years so could be wrong).

Where have I seen Eileen's bloke before?

ShutUppaYourFace Sat 15-Oct-11 18:22:51

He was in Hollyoaks, think his character was called mike

I reckon that it's either a domestice violence storyline and he can't leave, or his wife has dementia.

DramaInPyjamas Sat 15-Oct-11 21:08:46

Apparently it's a storyline never seen before in a soap..
Dementia/illness has been done.. I'm thinking polygamy.

I just wish they could have found an actor who was taller than Eileen. Or at least the same height.

GoodAndBluts Sat 15-Oct-11 21:20:58

Open marriage?

Marne Sat 15-Oct-11 21:29:19

I think the wife has an illness and wants to find a replacement mother for her children and wife for her husband before she dies?

Either that or is an open marriage.

I just want Eileen to be happy!!!

Yes, he was Mike Barnes in Hollyoaks and does the voice over for How It's Made. Every time I hear his smug voice and see his smug mug I want to punch him. Don't rate his acting, either.

Corrie has certainly done bigamy before. Emily married a bigamist way back in the day... can't remember his name. Something beginning with 'A' hmm

EdithWeston Wed 19-Oct-11 20:16:06

Arnold Swain.

Peter Barlow has also married bigamously.

MurielTheActor Wed 19-Oct-11 22:59:31

Thank you Edith! Should have remembered that...

EdithWeston Wed 19-Oct-11 23:18:06

I think it could well be a scenario where a wife is permitting an affair, for whatever reason.

Pity - I'd just like to see Eileen in a normal relationship with a nice man.

I do like to see Julie with the headmaster!

Paul was also the nice fireman who sheltered Sally in the tramcrash live episode when she forgot 'er 'at !

crazynannawitchbitch Thu 20-Oct-11 08:48:27

I was going to say maybe his wife is really a man...but we have had that one too,havn't we? hmm

EdithWeston Thu 20-Oct-11 20:05:06

His wife has an early onset dementia?

Bossybritches22 Thu 20-Oct-11 20:46:42

or they have a disabled child?

EdithWeston Fri 21-Oct-11 07:38:57

I think we'll find out tonight, as Eileen is set on going round to tell his wife what he has been doing.

I'm beginning to warm to Marcus, and Sean is finally beginning to show signs of being a grown up. There are perhaps possibilities in the Grimshaw household after all (though I wish Rosie would go back on extended leave - much better without her, and the spoiler I've read about her upcoming storyline is the most dreadful recycled twaddle I've seen in a long time).

I wonder how much scurrying round and rewriting has been going on, with one actor on unexpected leave of absence and a couple of others down with disgusting colds.

I'm sure dimentia allready married but falling for another partner has happened before just wracking my brains trying to think which soap?

popadop Fri 21-Oct-11 19:41:41

Can anyone remember when Peter Barlow tried to rape liz macdonald?

It was ages ago when he first came back.

Makes my teeth itch watching him being all nice to Carla, don't scriptwriters remember storylines?
