Coronation Street Past And Present Wiki

Anthony "Tony" Stewart was a character in Coronation Street who first appeared in 2003 and returned in 2014 as a regular character. He was dating Liz McDonald but cheated on her with Tracy Barlow (How typical of Tracy, taking what is not hers). The character departed in Ep 8772 (13 Nov 2015). He later passed away off-screen in April 2016.

Alan Igbon played the role in 2003, with Terence Maynard taking over and playing the part from 2014 to 2015.



Tony Stewart was born on the 14th March 1965. In 1982 aged 17, he met 20 year old Eileen Grimshaw. They romanced for a while. By October 1982 he got her pregnant and on the 30th June 1983, a son, Jason Grimshaw was born. Tony was a wheeler dealer and dealt in dodgy goods.



Tony returned to Weatherfield in 2013 and started seeing Liz McDonald. He soon moved in with her. Her son Steve McDonald disapproved of their relationship, and one night, Tony had a word in Steve's shell like, telling him to back off or else. Steve had to bite his lip and agree.

When Callum Logan beat up Tony's son Jason, Tony beat Callum up. In 2015, Tony cheated on Liz with Tracy Barlow. Liz got revenge on him. In November 2015, Tony got a job working in Birmingham and left Weatherfield for good.

Death in 2016[]

In April 2016, Tony died and his body was not found for a few days, as his work boss and colleagues wondered why he had been absent for the past few days and not told them. They discovered his body and informed Eileen Grimshaw and her son Jason back in Weatherfield. Jason took his anger out on others.

Background information[]

  • The age of Tony Stewart has never been explicitlly stated but he was seeing Eilleen Grimshaw in the autumn of 1982 when she fell pregnant with Jason, who was born in June 1983. Eileen said Tony was 3 years younger than her. Eileen was born in 1961 so Tony was probably born 1964 or 1965, he was born on the 14th March but it is unclear if it was just over 3 years age gap or just under. Tony was at least 17 in late 1982 when Jason was concieved. The actor, Terence Maynard, is quite a bit younger, born in 1969.
  • The plate on the coffin at his funeral was seen briefly during the service, and it appears to say "1965-2016".
