BILLY Mayhew loses his job over Todd Grimshaw’s betrayal next week in Coronation Street.
The undertaker – who is played by actor Gareth Pierce in the ITV soap – will be forced to steal from his own boyfriend this week by blackmailer Will, who’s threatening to expose Todd’s evil schemes to Billy.
Todd will steal the expensive heat pump that Billy has purchased for the halfway house and frame Paul Foreman for the crime.
However, next week his actions come back to haunt him as Ed breaks the news to Billy that the insurance won’t pay out for the stolen heat pump.
Todd is horrified when Billy meets up with the bishop and resigns as archdeacon.
Meanwhile, Summer corners Paul and tells him the theft of the heat pump has cost Billy his job.
Will Paul put two and two together and realise Todd was behind the theft?
Corrie boss Iain Macleod has said that Todd will meet his downfall eventually.

“He will ultimately and temporarily look like he’s got everything he wants,” Iain previously told The Sun.
“Unfortunately, the lengths that Todd has gone to in order to get what he wants will be the very thing that will be his undoing in the end.
“Todd gets his happy ending but it’s already got a massive fracture in it.
“In a very explosive, dramatic – again quite thriller-ish – way later in the year, Todd’s machinations will all come to light and he’ll end up losing everything again.”
Iain added: “Todd being Todd, he’s fairly Teflon. He’ll lose everything again and then quite quickly set about reacquiring it, or something of equal value.
“We want to enjoy that character, really. We’re conscious that the best villains are ones that you enjoy hating and almost laugh at their sheer audacity.
“Todd has that capacity to be very funny and enjoyable as a villain.”
Corrie viewers know that Todd hired teenager Will to manipulate Paul for several weeks.
His scheme worked when Billy dumped Paul for bringing trouble to their door and getting Summer injured.
Billy and Todd have since reunited, with Billy unaware that he played any role in his split from Paul.
