5 Reasons We Are Going To Miss Jason Grimshaw

As our favourite builder heads off for sunnier climes we wanted to take a moment to look back at what made Jason Grimshaw so great!

1. Look At His Little Face

He's just so cute! We first met Jason back in 2000, when he ran all the way to the Battersby's to find Eillen, after getting bored at his dad's house.

Butter wouldn't melt...

2. Clothes just seem to fall off him!

We're not sure how it happens but Jason often ends up in situations where he's not wearing his top...

We can't think why... Can you?

3. He has a weakness for the ladies

It's fair to say that Jason is pretty unluckily in love. He just can't catch a break the poor guy...

Violet was Jason's first serious girlfriend, until she kissed Charlie behind his back and he had an affair with Sarah...

Sarah caused a rift between Jason and Tood, having been in a relationship with both brothers.

Things looked good for a brief time with Tina, but the Platt family have a tendency for messing things up for Jason (and we wonder why Gail and Eileen don't get along!)

Jason and Rosie were going to be Weatherfield's answer to David and Victoria Beckham but unfortunately she left for London without him.

Jason had a brief affair with Stella, which caused all sorts of trouble with Karl who started a vendetta against our favourite builder.

Jason would later get with Eva (Stella's daughter - awkward!) but things went south with them after Todd convinced Jason she was having an affair with Tony!

4. He loves his mummy

The most important person in his life is his Eileen - where would he be without her?

5. And he loves a bacon butty

Jason's happiest when he's filling his face with food surrounded by his friends and family - you can't say fairer than that!

CORONATION STREET TO BROADCAST SIXTH WEEKLY EPISODE

The nation’s most successful and popular soap drama, Coronation Street, is to broadcast a sixth weekly episode from late 2017, ITV announced today.

ITV’s Director of Television, Kevin Lygo, said the news reflected the broadcaster’s commitment to high quality soap for its hugely loyal audience.

I am a life-long fan of Coronation Street and one of the first things I wanted to explore when I became Director of Television was taking the production to six episodes a week.

The soaps are the cornerstone of the ITV schedule, and Coronation Street continues to
produce some of the finest drama and comedy on television. It is a hugely important part of what has defined ITV throughout its history, and I want it to continue to be right at the heart of what ITV defines in years to come.

As a viewer I have watched the soap as it has continued to evolve, entertain, and grip the
nation with fantastic storylines and this move will be the next exciting chapter in Corrie's story.

– ITV’s Director of Television, Kevin Lygo,

ITV Studios Managing Director of Continuing Drama and Head of ITV in the North, John
Whiston, who has responsibility for overseeing both Coronation Street and Emmerdale, said:

From a creative perspective this is an extremely exciting development for the production team, writers, cast and crew who work on our globally renowned soap drama. Coronation Street’s new producer Kate Oates, modern filming and editing facilities at the programme’s Production Centre and our fantastic, peerless drama teams will help turn this great idea into reality.

– ITV Studios Managing Director of Continuing Drama and Head of ITV in the North, John Whiston,

The plan, which was unveiled to the writers, cast and crew today, will create employment
opportunities adding a new and exciting dimension to filming the UK’s longest running soap drama.

The current layout of the set will be extended to facilitate the expansion in production, and create additional studio space on the 7.7-acre site in Trafford, Manchester. The programme currently has four operational studios, as well as the exterior lot of Coronation Street, and space has been identified on site for the creation of a further filming zone.
