Will Johnny Connor lose The Rovers Return

Aspiring romance writer with a number of short stories being published May 2020 and freelance reporter on all things UK. Guilty pleasures are soap and celebrity gossip and 80's cheese ; think A-ha and Nick Kershaw.

Johnny took over the Rovers Return last year on Coronation Street, along with his wife, Jenny Connor. They have a baby daughter, Kate Connor, who Johnny may have to wave goodbye to as well. Is Johnny’s world about to come crashing down around him?

Johnny had bought the place from Peter Barlow after a drama with Peters partner Toyah, when she tried to pass off Eva’s baby as their own. Eva is played by Catherine Tyldesley, who has already hinted that she may be returning to the cobbles, so will she be coming back to claim the Rovers Return.

Before Eva had exited, there was a lot of drama, whenever her grandfather, Johnny, didn’t think that a young Eva was seen as fit to be a good enough mother to his grandchild, so there was an ensuing custody battle.   This was mostly as Johnny was still in grief about losing his son, Aidan. Johnny had actually kidnapped The young baby, but after that drama, they seemed to make peace, and Eva even said he could visit Susie anytime. 

Eva may now have her eyes set on finally owning the Rovers, as her mother, Stella Price had once done. So that the Pub could be the new life and future for her and her daughter, we will have to wait and see if actress Catherine Tyldesley makes her return to the cobbles, after her stint on Strictly Come dancing!
