Unlucky-in-love factory worker Eileen Grimshaw is to find love with a hunky fireman in a new 'Coronation Street' storyline
Eileen Grimshaw is find love with a fireman in 'Coronation Street'.
The unlucky-in-love factory worker gets her head stuck in a set of bars on the roof of Underworld while celebrating her 50th birthday and the emergency services have to come and free her.
Despite her accident, Eileen's day gets better when hunky fireman Paul - who was previously in Weatherfield to deal with the 2010 tram crash - turns up and saves her.
He then comes back to the cobbled streets with a bouquet in hand to ask Eileen - played by Sue Cleaver - to go on a date with him to the Bistro.
A 'Coronation Street' spokesman said: "Eileen has always been one of our most popular characters and this big storyline will take her well into the New Year."
Sue Cleaver, who plays Eileen, recently signed a new 12-month deal to star in the ITV1 soap but although her character will find a new man the course of true love will not run smooth for her.
The show's producer Phil Collinson said: "Fireman Paul has got a bit of a secret - it's the best tradition of soap. It's not going to be easy."
