'Coronation Street' newcomer Gloria Price sparks outrage when she turns the Rovers Return into a Bed & Breakfast
'Coronation Street' newcomer Gloria Price is to turn the Rovers Return into a Bed & Breakfast.
The Weatherfield battleaxe - played by Sue Johnston - takes advantage of her daughter Stella's (Michelle Collins) absence to start offering out the pub's bedrooms to paying guests.
In scenes airing next month, she tells one man: "So it's a double room for two nights? It's very short notice, we're very popular these days. You're in luck, we had a last-minute cancellation.
"The poor lad's mother died, tragic accident on the Rotterdam ferry. She was trying to fit her mates into a group photo and I think you can guess the rest.
"So that's £32.50 with a full English breakfast. Welcome to the Rovers Return and may you return many times."
However, Gloria's scheme doesn't go down to well with Stella's daughter Eva (Catherine Tyldesley) - and her disapproval leads to the real reason behind her grandmother's antics being uncovered.
According to the Daily Star newspaper, Eva says: "Since when do we do bed and breakfast."
Gloria hits back, explaining: "Since I entered us into the B&B category for pub of the year.
"All you need is quilts, pillows and a frying pan. What else do you need?"
