Violet arrived at the Rovers much to the surprise of Shelley.
Fred told her she had hired her to help since they were short of
Violet settled down very quickly and set her sights
on Jason Grimshaw. Jason pretended he had dumped Candice so he

mind and went to the Grimshaw's for dinner. Jason was impressed
when she asked for pineapple on her gammon, so Eileen sent
Jason out to buy some but he bought chunks instead of rings. They
got on well once the nervousness was over. As she knew Sean
Tully, she managed to persuade Jason into agreeing Sean could move
in with the Grimshaw's in the pretext she'd be around more
In July 2005, Charlie Stubbs's roving eye turned
towards Violet. He not only propositioned her, but one night after
when they'd had a few drinks, they kissed. Violet felt guilty.
She stayed away for a few days saying she felt ill and had been
sick, making Jason think she was pregnant. The following day she
went into work and warned Charlie off. But when she went to leave
that night she found the front door locked. He cornered her by
the bar and she was shocked to discover Shelley wasn't upstairs
as she'd believed. She managed to run and bumped into Sean outside,
telling him a bit about what happened and how Charlie could do
At Shelley's hen night in mid-September she confessed about the
kiss. Shelley didn't believe any of what her friends were telling
her about Charlie even when Violet asked her why she would risk
her job and Jason by lying. Eventually in a drunken moment, she
confessed all to Jason and he hit the roof, ending their relationship.
They reconciled at the end of October, by which time Jason had
slept with Sarah Platt after Les and Cilla's Halloween faked wedding.
Three weeks later, it all came out and Violet dumped him for good.
She later went out with Jamie Baldwin during 2006 while continuing
to live with Eileen at number 11. That all ended when after wrongly
thinking he was having an affair with Sean Tully, discovered he
was in fact in love with his step-mother Frankie and they were
having an affair. Things went from bad to worse and at the end
of the year she was taken to hospital after collapsing as a result
of an ectopic preganancy. But she was told in March 2007 she could
still have children but her chances were diminished. Despite several
failed brief romances, Sean offered to give her the child she wanted
and they got down to business in July.
