Todd Grimshaw will come to blows with brother Jason upon his return to 'Coronation Street' as they clash about Todd's newfound ''snobby'' attitude
Todd Grimshaw will come to blows with brother Jason upon his return to 'Coronation Street'.
The sensitive hunk - who was the ITV1 soap's first openly gay character - comes back to Weatherfield with new boyfriend Jools in tow, but his arrival is not welcomed by everyone.
Todd - played by Bruno Langley - left the street in 2004 after it was revealed he had been cheating on then-pregnant fiancee Sarah-Louise Platt (Tina O'Brien) with male nurse Karl Foster and although he briefly returned to see his former flame marry Jason (Ryan Thomas), all is not well between the brothers.
Bruno said: "Todd's very nervous about bringing his boyfriend back to meet the family. He's a bit wary about introducing Jools to everyone, because he's been in London a while and has changed.
"He's been mixing with well-to-do people and he thinks his mum and Jason are quite common. Todd is all academic nowadays - and he's become a bit snobbish."
As the brothers clash, it is left down to mum Eileen (Sue Cleaver) to sort things out behind the pair as she doesn't want Todd to leave her again.
However, it's not just Jason who has a problem with his "snobbish" sibling.
Speaking of his alter ego's return, Bruno added to Inside Soap magazine: "Todd's got a bit of history with more than one person on the street, so a trip to the Rovers brings back some memories he'd rather not dwell on.
"There are still some tensions for him there - I'm sure some people have said some nasty things about Todd while he's been away and still think badly of him over what happened."
