Coronation Street triumphed at the British Soap Awards 2013 and Michelle Keegan won sexiest female.
Rovers to get guest house makeover?
Sue Johnston will play Gloria Price in Corrie
Coronation Street newcomer Gloria Price is set to turn the Rovers Return into a bed and breakfast.
Royle Family star Sue Johnston is joining the soap as landlady Stella Price's pushy mother next month, and The Daily Star reports she will try to make over the pub as a guest house in a bid to improve business.
While Stella (Michelle Collins) is away Gloria takes over and decides adding a bed and breakfast service to the pub is just what the street needs.
She even enters the Rovers in the B&B category for pub of the year, telling granddaughter Eva (Catherine Tyldesley) that running a B&B is easy.
Sue has said: "She doesn't endear herself to everyone. She's a real Coronation Street matriarch."
