The undertaker played by Tony Maudsley was struggling to cope with his toothache in recent scenes of the Manchester-based soap.
But on Friday (August 5, 2022), he decided to tune out his pain with some painkillers, resulting in him not behaving like himself.
Unfortunately, George had to be shoved into a car as his associate Todd Grimshaw was trying to make sure his attitude had no impact on a funeral which was well underway.
In a surprising twist, George’s sister Glenda Shuttleworth rocked up the cobbles and saved the day.
Once he came to, George was happy to see her after learning she had jumped in to help.
“It’s like this Glenda’s, been on the street for ages, she’s going to fit right in, methinks!”, one viewer commented on social media.
Another echoed: “It’s lovely to see Jodie Prenger in Corrie, lovely lady.”

“Glenda? ALREADY ICONIC”, a third viewer added while one soap fan chimed in: “Glenda is already so iconic. I love Jodie welcome to the show.”
One Corrie viewer believed Jodie should remain in the cobbles on a permanent basis: “Great to see Jodie Prenger on the street. I hope she’s here for the long term.”
Speaking of her new role in Coronation Street, Jodie mentioned it to be a “very special moment” in her life and career, most notably due to her family’s connection with the iconic soap.
