Rovers Return landlady Stella Price is set to cause a stir on ''Coronation Street' when she embarks on a steamy relationship with toy boy Jason Grimshaw
Stella Price is set to cause shock waves on 'Coronation Street' when she beds hunky young builder Jason Grimshaw.
The Rovers Return landlady - played by 51-year-old Michelle Collins - turns into the cougar of the cobbles when she sets her sights on Jason (Ryan Thomas, 28) and lures him into a steamy relationship.
The pair will end up having a passionate relationship after Jason splits from hairdresser Maria Connor - who recently kissed her gay best friend Marcus Dent, according to the Daily Star newspaper.
However, Stella is paranoid the other Weatherfield residents will be disapproving of their big age gap and tries to keep their romance under wraps until Jason's mother Eileen (Sue Cleaver) catches them kissing, which prompts her to question what they're doing.
In scenes to be screened in November, Stella says to Jason: "I feel mortified and embarrassed. Your mum just saw us snogging. Just saying that makes me what to cringe. She's right though, what was I thinking?"
But unconcerned Jason reassures his lover they are doing nothing wrong and convinces her not to end things, telling her: "I don't care, we're both free and single, why can't we?"
It is Stella's first relationship since she caught her husband Karl Munro having sex with Sunita Alahan and kicked him out.
