And the plot thickened when Craig Tinker dropped the bombshell that Todd is no longer being hunted for by the police – leaving his friends and family wondering why he’d been keeping away from Weatherfield.
After hiring a private detective named Lenny to find Todd, Billy was concerned to discover that Todd had disappeared after trying to scam a gangster.

"It’s an honour to be part of the dedicated Coronation Street team in such unprecedented times."
