Although we didn’t think Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) was a hero on Coronation Street, he may prove us wrong in forthcoming episodes when he divulges his plan to try and salvage the Rovers Return bar.
The boozer’s future is in danger due to financial issues. Poor Jenny (Sally Ann Matthews) is trying to make ends meet, so she raises the B&B’s rent, reduces shifts, and raises food and beverage costs in an effort to balance things out.
Jenny and Daisy (Charlotte Jordan) plan a luxurious gathering to try to impress Philip and Henry Newton (George Banks), who jointly run the beer company Newton and Ridley. However, they are let down when a croaky Glenda (Jodie Prenger) admits that she has lost her voice and can’t play.
When Philip learns that Glenda has a singer named Glyn Young hired, he is pleased.
However, Jenny, Glenda, and Daisy are certain the evening will be a complete failure when an old guy with hearing aids arrives.
After the incident, Henry gently informs Jenny that the brewery isn’t willing to purchase the Rovers after reviewing the accounting and gives her the contact information of a developer.
A dejected Jenny informs Daisy later in the week that a developer will be visiting to appraise the tavern.
Steve and George (Tony Maudsley) disclose at the Kabin that they have established a crowdfunding website in an effort to try to preserve the Rovers.
But will it be sufficient?
Or, if they are unable to preserve the company themselves, would the Weatherfield locals accept new owners?
