coronation street villainous Stephen Reid begins meddling with Rovers Return next week after Jenny Connor complains of financial troubles.
Having already wreaked havoc on Underworld for the past few months, Stephen decides to share his advice with Jenny on how to get his failing business back on track.
In the next week’s scenes, Jenny first confides in her boyfriend Owen about the pub’s financial difficulties.
Owen grimly suggests that Jenny should cut her losses and sell, but she refuses to even consider that as an option.

Stephen soon wades in with his own opinions, suggesting a sneaky alternative to price hikes. He advances the idea of reducing portion sizes to increase profit margins on sales of each meal.
Jenny takes the idea on board, but she and Glenda Shuttleworth prepare for a backlash when Ed Bailey and Gary Windass run into their little pots.

Later that week, Stephen suggests that raising bass prices might be the best idea after all.
Jenny announces that she is going ahead with this plan, while increasing her room rental fees.
Pub staff are stunned when Jenny reveals she is cutting back on her working hours, while punters complain about rising prices.
Sean Tully helps Jenny by handing out flyers to promote a darts night, hoping it will boost business.

Jenny is disappointed when no one shows up – and the reason becomes clear when she finds Gary, George Shuttleworth, Kirk Sutherland and Sean all drinking beers and playing darts at a rival event in Ed’s backyard.
As Jenny begins to lose hope for the pub, she confides in Daisy Midgeley that they are only weeks away from closing permanently unless things improve soon.
Are the lights about to go out at Rovers Return forever?
