‘Coronation Street’ Spoiler: Jason Grimshaw ‘To Inherit Windfall’ After Dad’s Death

It'll come just before he leaves Weatherfield.

Jason Grimshaw is set to receive a huge bundle of cash in ‘Coronation Street’, according to reports.

Ryan Thomas’s character is set to bow out of the soap in the coming months, but it seems like before he goes, he’ll inherit £80,000.

Last month, it was reported that his dad Tony Stewart is going to be killed off, off-screen, and reports have now claimed that a windfall for Jason will follow.

A source told The Sun: “This windfall is part of a series of storylines that will lead to his exit on the show later this year. It’s going to be explosive.”

There’s no word yet on exactly when Jason will inherit the cash, or say farewell to Weatherfield, but the cast were spotted filming the funeral scenes for Tony last week.

The soap recently got a new boss, when Kate Oates took over as executive producer, and it’s rumoured that a number of cast changes could be about to take place.

Last month, Kate hinted that we could be getting a blast from the past, and named a number of fan favourites from yesteryear that she’d love to bring back.
