But things may be about to change in upcoming scenes as Ed, Craig and Ronnie discover a dead body buried on a construction site.
As officers work hard to try and determine the cause of death and identify the individual, the Canadian entrepreneur remains blissfully unaware of their discovery.
Over the past week, Stephen has continued to fall deeper in love with Rovers Return landlady Jenny Connor during their romantic trip to Paris.
Upon their return, the two love birds take things to the next level when Jenny says its time he moved into the pub filled with the joys of new love.
But reality will hit him like a brick towards the end of the week when he learns of the body found on Ed and Ronnie’s building site.
In a desperate attempt to hide his inner turmoil, Stephen pretends he has a migraine before he returns to the pub to press Ed for more details.
When Ed confirms that it was definitely a man’s body found on the site, Stephen’s heart sinks just as a uniformed Craig enters the pub and breaks the news to Jenny that the body is Leo’s.
Fans will have to stay tuned to see if Stephen will worm his way out of another sticky situation or whether he will finally face up to his crimes.
