AFTER being offered a huge new career, Todd Grimshaw is forced to make a difficult decision when it leads him into a heart-breaking situation.
The Coronation Street undertaker had an explosive fallout with George Shuttleworth when he got a job offer from RestEasy.
George felt so betrayed by Todd considering working for the other funeral parlour that he cut his losses and declared their working relationship over.
The bitterness between the two seeps into next week's episodes as George makes cutting remarks about RestEasy while Todd gets ready for his first shift.
Both men are left unhappy when Todd begins to realise his new job isn't all it was cracked up to be.
In the first week, the young funeral director is forced to tell a customer that RestEasy has promised a service they can't actually deliver.

The emotional stress all begins to get too much for the undertaker when Paul Foreman tells him he is planning to go through with an assisted death, but begs him to keep the situation secret.
Meanwhile, George is struggling to train Lee as a replacement.
The older man realises his new employee is not cut out for the job, but does not want to swallow his pride and admit that to Todd.
