Coronation Street bombshell as Rovers Return is CLOSED and the staff sacked | The Sun

WEATHERFIELD is facing the loss of one of its biggest landmarks as the Rovers Return staff receives devastating news next week.

The iconic Coronation Street pub is shut down and Jenny Connor has to turn her back on her whole business.

The pub landlady portrayed by Sally Ann Matthews is receiving one bombshell after another.

This week, Jenny finds out her former fiancé Leo Thompkins never truly left her but was in fact murdered by an unknown attacker.

Shaken by the news, Jenny also has to face the possibility that she will never be at the head of the Rovers Return Inn ever again, a business she'd bought with her late husband Johnny in 2018.

Forced to turn over a new leaf and devastated to learn Leo was actually killed, Jenny finds small comfort in the form of her new beau Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce).

Coming up next week on ITV, Stephen tells Jenny that he wants to take her on holiday to Thailand to get away from everything.

But the Waterford’s Manager soon arrives with jaw-dropping news.

The Rovers will not only be closed down for an extensive refurbishment but the staff members' contracts have all been terminated with immediate effect.

Everyone is thrown into a spin but can they save the pub?

Weatherfield solicitor Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson) steps in to help and insists there’s a case for unfair dismissal.

However, when DS Swain calls to tell Jenny they now have proof that neither Leo nor his father Teddy visited Canada, her mind goes elsewhere.

As Jenny argues that Teddy contacted Stephen from Canada, Stephen inwardly panics. 

Jenny has no idea that Stephen killed Theo in September, 2022, but also murdered his father Teddy earlier this year.

Teddy had figured out that Stephen was up to no good and that his son Leo was ready to expose him for his actions.

Unwilling to face the consequences of his villainous deeds, Stephen killed Teddy in the Underworld factory with a staple gun before disposing of his body.

He then claimed a third victim – fellow businessman Rufus Donahue.
