Corrie fans baffled by Todd funeral ‘plot hole’ as Mary’s plan unravels

Coronation Street aired comedy gold on Wednesday evening, as Mary Taylor and George Shuttleworth staged Todd Grimshaw's funeral – with dire consequences.

However, certain viewers were convinced they spotted a plot hole in the scene, as they watched the phony funeral play out on their screens.

Todd (Gareth Pierce) recently returned to the street, keeping a low profile while on the run from a dangerous criminal.

Following his return, he begged his mum to identify a body in the morgue as his own, planning to play dead in order to save his life.

During tonight's episode, hoping to trick gangster Mick Costello into thinking Todd was dead, Mary (Patti Clare) and George (Tony Maudsley) prayed Eileen Grimshaw would be pleased by the funeral hoax.

However, when Eileen (Sue Cleaver) saw the hearse pulling up on the cobbles, complete with Todd's name spelled out in floral lettering, she was livid.

Dressed in black, undertaker George and florist Mary feigned mourning, trying their best to give off an accurate impression of a funeral.

However, over on Twitter, certain viewers were surprised the funeral hadn't attracted more attention on the street, as the glossy black hearse swamped the cobbles.

Many also pointed out the locals were close with Todd, and so would likely be horrified to see his name spelled out on a hearse – particularly after he was missing, and feared dead, for several weeks.

One user said: "So no one in the street has seen that hearse with the coffin in it with Todd's name in it?"

"How are we going to be sure the right people see this funeral… Will the whole street be mourning with Eileen," added a second.

And a third chimed: "Eileen goes to confirm whether Todd's body was found or not, tells everyone it wasn't him and now two days later there's a hearse with his name on it? How would that make any sense to ANYONE?"

Will Mary and George's plan backfire, or have they done enough to save Todd's life?

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8pm on ITV.
