Jenny Connor gets shock Rovers Return news in Coronation Street | The Sun

AFTER being thrown out of house and home once the Rovers Return was closed, Jenny Connor is trying to get back to a normal life.

However, the former pub landlady played by Sally Ann Matthews gets shocking news about Coronation Street's legendary venue.

Soap boss Iain MacLeod shared a series of jaw-dropping spoilers during a recent chat with The Sun and revealed the Rovers would definitely Return.

As regular ITV viewers will remember, the long-standing pub was closed down earlier this year with Jenny and her faithful staff being sacked and pushed out into the Street with barely any notice.

The pub was closed for an extensive refurbishment as a new era begins.

It all started when the Newton & Ridley brewery took over the pub with a little help from former barmaid Gemma Winter.

At the time, business at the Rovers was going downhill, forcing Jenny to grasp at straws to save her pub and Henry Newton and his brewery came about at the right time.

Unfortunately, Gemma's ex and brewery heir Henry Newton was himself pushed out as Waterford's bought him out of his own company.

Viewers and Weatherfield residents have all been waiting to know more about what is due to happen to the Rovers.

As mentioned above, Iain MacLeod revealed there were some huge changes ahead for the pub and Jenny finally finds out more information next week.

But she may not be happy to receive the update.

Coming up, Brian Packham (portrayed by Peter Gunn) breaks the news to Jenny that Waterford's have put the Rovers up for sale.

Matters go from bad to worse when he then announces that a property developer is hoping to buy the Rovers to turn it into flats.

How will Jenny react?

Does she have a chance to save the Rovers from complete closure?

Jenny and her former employees have tried to fight back against Waterford's as the Rovers Return Inn was boarded up but the company has been firm in its decision to shut everything down.

The ex-landlady even tried to reapply for her job but Waterford's were quick to turn her away and threatened her with legal action if she and her staff were ever to set foot in the Rovers again.

This was a warning Jenny failed to take into account as she sneaked back into the pub with Sarah Platt before being attacked by serial killer Stephen Reid.

Speaking about the future of the Rovers Return, Iain MacLeod said: "The interesting thing about it is the circumstances of it becoming open again are all tied up with Stephen Reid's legacy and somebody will do something that is, at best, naughty and, at worst, slightly criminal to get their hands on the keys to the pub and reopen it."

"So it will reopen but it will be based on this slightly shaky foundation of a criminal act shall we say."

"We didn't want it to open up again like nothing had happened. We wanted it to open up with this buried bomb underneath it that we'll explode later next year."
