Who is George Shuttleworth on Coronation Street?
George is the son of the late Archie Shuttleworth.
Archie performed repeatedly in Corrie from 2002 to 2010.
During his performance between 2002 and 2003, he fell in love with Audrey Roberts and asked if they could ever be more than friends, but she gently told him they couldn’t.
In 2018, Audrey received news that Archie had died. While reading the will, Audrey met George off screen and she was given £ 80,000 left for her.
In 2020, George Shuttleworth took over Independent Funeral Directors from his father.
How is his relationship with Gail?
Last month Gail found a picture of a woman named Fanny.
After doing some research, Gail found out that Fanny was her great-great-grandmother.
She eventually found a distant relative on a genealogy website – someone who was also Fanny’s great-great-grandchild.
Gail was dating her distant cousin in the rovers and was shocked to discover it was George.
