Who was Jason Grimshaw in Coronation Street?

Jason Grimshaw in Coronation Street was Eileen‘s older son, and the big brother of Todd.

Fitness fan Jason arrived on the cobbles to surprise his mum on Christmas Day in 2000.

He immediately caught the eye of Toyah Battersby.

But during his time on the Street he romanced almost every woman living on it!

He had (two!) weddings with Sarah Platt, but he left her after she revealed she’d set her brother, David up.

Jason also bedded mum and daughter Stella and Eva Price.

Also on his list of conquests were Maria Connor, Candice Stowe, Rosie Webster, and Becky Granger.

When did he leave?

In 2016, Jason became embroiled in a revenge plot after Callum Logan’s mates believed Jason’s dad Tony killed Callum.

However Tony wasn’t responsible for Callum’s death (Kylie Platt was), but Tony had died just two months after Callum did and wasn’t able to defend himself.

Jason’s van was torched in the builder’s yard and he believed it was Callum’s mates – but it was actually manipulative Pat Phelan.

Pat convinced Jason to leave Weatherfield and leave him in charge of the builder’s yard. Jason soon headed off for Thailand and hasn’t returned.

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