Coronation Street's Eileen Grimshaw will face prison after her burly boss Owen Armstrong reports her for defrauding him
Coronation Street's' Eileen Grimshaw could face prison after Owen Armstrong reports her for defrauding him.
The mouthy mum - played by Sue Cleaver - will be left reeling when she gets "too cocky" trying to get her own back on her builder boss, only to find he has turned the tables on her.
Eileen lands herself in trouble when she decides to tell shopkeepers Dev and Sunita Alahan (Jimmi Harkishin and Shobna Gulati) that bad boy Owen - whom she once stole £10,000 from before paying him back - has been dodging his tax bills.
She explained: "Well, she gets a bit cocky doesn't she? Eileen really thinks she has the upper hand as far as Owen is concerned. Because she repaid the cash she stole from him, and because of the evidence she had against him - the unpaid VAT bills - she wants people to know what kind of bloke he really is."
However, the plan backfires when feisty Sunita uses the information to try and blackmail him into repairing her and Dev's shop.
Furious Owen (Ian Puleston-Davies) then sneaks into Eileen's home to steal the VAT bills - narrowly missing being caught out by Rosie Webster (Helen Flanagan) - before calling the police who arrest her at her work place.
Sue added to Inside Soap magazine: "Eileen is absolutely mortified because the police turn up at Underwold and arrest her in front of the girls.
"She works out pretty quickly that Owen is behind it, because he was behaving strangely earlier in the day. Nothing would surprise her about Owen so she knows it was him who took her to the police."
