Glenda Shuttleworth, portrayed by Jodie Prenger on Coronation Street, has voiced her views about Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce), but the actress is now concerned for the fate of her character as his outburst is about to end.
Glenda presently manages the theatre company Little Big Shotz while working at the Rovers Return alongside Daisy Midgeley (Charlotte Jordan) and Jenny Connor (Sally-Ann Matthews).
Glenda had been leery of Stephen ever since he arrived, especially after he made it clear he had affections for Jenny.
After pointing out a previous indication that could lead to her character being killed by the serial murderer, actor Jodie Prenger is now concerned for her.
Jodie explained to Digital Spy that Glenda has never loved him because he stole that £10 bill. She recognises it, is that right? Glenda, in my opinion, makes decisions based on gut feelings, and I doubt that she views him favourably.
She continued, “Of course, it’s a worry. The entire cast is continually concerned that they could be Stephen’s next victim.
“Because you can never predict what may occur! What if I get caught by him? Everyone would have to affirm that Glenda was correct.
However, recent set images show Stephen making a frantic run for the airport while being pursued by Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine), suggesting that the cast may be safe for the time being.
Recent pictures show Stephen arriving at the airport in panic and without luggage, which could indicate that his flight is a last-minute one to avoid being discovered.
Leo Thompkins’ (Joe Frost), Teddy Thompkins’ (Grant Burgin), and Rufus Donahue’s (Steve Meo) killings have been kept a secret by Stephen.
The fact that David Platt actor Jack P Shepherd hinted that his character is crucial to Stephen’s downfall further supports the idea that Glend would be safe for the time being.
Jack teased: “Things are getting on top of him and people are starting to find out,” in a separate interview with Digital Spy.
“And even though I haven’t read it yet, I believe I’m extremely invested in it! I’ve heard that I am. I’ve been told I’m in it, so that’s wonderful.
