'Coronation Street's Todd Grimshaw will finally seduce Marcus Dent next week after weeks of flirting
'Coronation Street's Todd Grimshaw will finally seduce Marcus Dent next week.
The Weatherfield resident - played by Bruno Langley - has set his sights on Marcus (Charlie Condou) in recent weeks and the midwife will find himself unable to resist Todd's advances any longer, despite being in a relationship with Maria Connor (Samia Ghadie).
Bruno said: "This was always about Todd pushing until Marcus caved in. He knows what he wants and won't stop until he gets it - never mind the consequences!
"Todd is genuinely attracted to Marcus and that's all it takes. He likes the challenge and the chase, but also Todd doesn't like to see other people happy when he isn't."
Marcus previously had a relationship with Sean Tully (Antony Cotton) but has since entered a heterosexual relationship with Maria, and Todd - who at one point was engaged to a woman before coming out - thinks Marcus is making a big mistake.
Bruno explained to Inside Soap magazine: "Remember, Todd at one time was all set to marry Sarah and have children, but he knew it wasn't right and he just getting swept up in it all. He can see the same pattern with Marcus.
"Todd actually believes he's saving Marcus from living a lie and helping out Maria at the same time."
