ITV Coronation Street fans spot 'jealousy' as they figure out a different romance for Sean

Coronation Street fans think they may have spotted a case of the green-eyed monster from one of the soap's characters and believe another romance may be brewing for unlucky in love Sean Tully. The barman and Underworld machinist hasn't had much luck when it comes to his relationships.

Viewers of the ITV soap recently saw him dating newbie Frank Bardsley. The character, played by Simon O'Brien, made his first Weatherfield appearance at the end of May when he made his way into the Rovers Return where he got chatting to Sean while he waited for his latest date who he met online.

The pair ended up hitting it off but when Frank was introduced to George Shuttleworth, it soon became apparent that they already know each other. George went on to confess all to partner Eileen Grimshaw in an emotional scene as he admitted that Frank used to bully him when they went to school together.

Despite Eileen trying to convince people can change, Frank showed his true colours when he turned on Sean’s recently returned son Dylan after he was injured in a football match. But as Frank hit out at the teen for not fighting back during the game, Sean caught him and sent him packing.

But a new love interest soon arrived in the shape of dentist Lawrence. The newcomer, played by Robert Shaw Cameron, was one of the mourners at Mr Pugh's funeral which was saved by the arrival of George's sister, Glenda. After moping around number 11, after missing his opportunity to make a move on Lawrence, Eileen told Glenda the reason for his glum face.

Glenda was then seen vowing to hunt him down on Sean’s behalf and came up with a plan, suggesting Sean should pretend to be a patient at Laurence's dental surgery. But Lawrence made the first move as in Wednesday night's trip to the cobbles (August 10), fans saw him appear at the Undertakers.

Sean eventually headed to meet Laurence in the Bistro (ITV)

George soon set him and Sean up on a date at the Bistro but troubled by his recen disaster with Frank, Sean refused to go, claiming he needed to put Dylan first. As Eileen, Glenda, and Mary Taylor tried to change his mind, it wasn't until Dylan arrived and asserted his dad get ready and go out as he was going out with his mates that Sean had a change of heart.

But it wasn't long before Sean and Laurence were seen getting on famously over drinks in the bistro. However, it was the appearance of another character during Sean's wobble at home that caught viewers' eyes and they think another romance could be brewing in Weatherfield.

@elizabethjallow said: "Put Sean and Todd together." @corriee_editz commented: "No! I ship Sean and Todd." @hamletthevizsla predicted: "Lawrence will end up with the vicar. And Todd will finally get with Sean. So obvious." @leanne198455 shared: "Think todd likes Sean." Pauline Norcup commented on Facebook: "They look great together and Todd is so jealous lol."

When Corrie asked if love could be in the air for Sean on social media, Sharon Hayes said: "I hope so but the way Todd was acting looks like he’s jealous of the attention seans getting so he’s going cause trouble don’t like Todd so sneaky always has been." Pauline Jones echoed: "I hope so , but bet Todd as different ideas ???" @happy_chappy_1978 added: "I do hope so and that Todd doesn’t ruin it, especially if nothing is happening with his life!!"
