Coronation Street fans are certain they've rumbled a potential further connection between serial killer Pat Phelan and funeral director George Shuttleworth.

The villain's ashes were discovered in the back room of the funeral parlour last week, with George insisting he had to get rid of them in a "respectful" manner, to Todd Grimshaw's disgust.

His mum Eileen had suffered at the hands of her ex Pat, after the spree of murders he conducted around Weatherfield.

But now fans are certain that DNA could be a compelling factor in George keeping the ashes safe and sound – and that Pat is actually George's brother.

Taking to Facebook, one wrote: "I really think George is Pat Phelan's brother."

Someone else quickly replied: "George will be related in some way, hence why he's been so nice to Todd!"

"He could be but I hope not!" another fan penned.

While someone else thought there could be more to Pat's memory "haunting" Eileen, writing: "I was thinking a twin brother storyline! So maybe you are right, who knows?"

"Fab twist if true!" a fifth viewer posted.

However, others weren't quite so convinced, as one argued: "Isn’t he the son of Archie the old funeral director (Roy Hudd) who popped in and out of Corrie for years a friend of Audrey?"
