Eileen Grimshaw (played by Sue Clever) and Gail Platt’s (Helen Worth) feud in Coronation Street has been decades-long. Their disagreements and squabbles over men have resulted in them having several fights and most recently, George Shuttleworth (Tony Maudsley) has been the man which has caused contention between the two ladies. The undertaker hasn’t been around for very long, and he’s already flirted with Mary Taylor (Patti Clare) and fawned over Gail, despite initially registering his interest in Eileen. Thankfully for Eileen, he and Gail are distant relatives, sharing a set of great grandparents, Fanny and Augustus Page. While she tries to put the slanging match she had with her best friend behind her, it seems her relationship with George will be on the rocks once more, and this time, Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) and Tim Metcalfe’s (Joe Duttine) childish behaviour is to blame.
In upcoming scenes of the ITV soap, Eileen offers Street Cars’ services for an upcoming funeral and assures Ted’s service will go like clockwork.
Tim offers to drive the hearse but when Steve finds out he was snubbed for the job, he is left feeling put out.
In a bid to make things fair, George will give the two men a practice run at driving the big car in order to see who is best.
After a hair-raising ride with Steve at the wheel, a shaken George asserts it’s Tim’s turn and he impresses the funeral director the most.
Viewers will see Tim emerge from the hearse and perform a victory dance, but Eileen is quick to remind her colleague that this is a serious job and decorum is needed.
Tim and Steve, however, take the mickey out of Eileen, aware that she fancies George.
In a later scene, Ted’s coffin is centre stage in the living room and Gail confides in her mother, Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls).
She explains how she wants Ted to have a fitting send-off and hopes Eileen doesn’t mess things up for them both.
As Tim readies himself to drive the hearse, Steve winds him up from the sidelines and leaves him feeling too jittery to go through with it.
Instead, he hurries away leaving Eileen no choice but to jump in the hearse and drive it herself.
She assures George she knows what she’s doing – but does she?
In fact, Eileen massively overcompensates her ability and her behaviour publicly humiliates George.

Feeling utterly embarrassed by the debacle of Street Cars ruining the funeral, George tells Eileen he wants nothing more to do with her and she is left devastated.
In a later scene, Eileen runs into George in the cafe and she apologises for messing up the funeral, assuring him it was entirely unintentional.
But their conversation is interrupted by Gail, who drags George off to the library to do some further genealogy research.
Unable to resist the opportunity to fight, Eileen mocks Gail and her family tree, and a row escalates.
George, fed up with being in the middle of the two hollering women, orders them to shut up before storming out.
Is this the final straw for the newcomer?
