Reports tonight they're recasting Todd Grimshaw.
Yes (although based on the above, if it’s The Sun it may be made up). I’m not sure about that, recastings tend to only work if the character has been mostly in the background up to that point, like children or background characters.
Todd had a vast history of stories behind him over many years and various different eras and is still quite fresh in the mind.
Having said that Nick Tilsley worked, and Tracey did (although the old Tracey mostly just went up stairs and played her tapes).
