Well this is a twist that no one definitely saw coming! There are new Coronation Street spoilers that indicate Johnny Connor (Richard Hawley) might end up losing the Rovers Return in a shocking betrayal. Here’s what you need to know.
Johnny and his wife Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews) took over the Rovers last year and since then have tried to put their own spin on the place. He bought the pub from Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) during a very dark period in his life.
This was after his partner Toyah Battersby (Georgia Taylor) tried to pass off Eva Price’s (Catherine Tyldesley) baby as her own after their surrogate miscarried their child. When the truth finally came out, Eva revealed that her baby’s father was actually the late Aidan Connor (Shayne Ward).

Johnny then launched a custody battle against Eva as he didn’t see the young mother fit enough to take care of the child. Johnny was filled with grief over losing his son and at one point even kidnapped the young tot.
Even though Eva was quite upset with Johnny, she told him that he could visit Susie at anytime after they made peace at Aidan’s inquest.
Coronation Street spoilers now indicate that there’s a very good chance we might be seeing Eva Price back on the cobblers.
