FIRMLY UNDER WIFE Jenny’s THUMB, Johnny KNOWS HE’LL BE FOR IT IF SHE DISCOVERS HIS RECENT FLING WITH Liz!
New Rovers Return landlady Jenny Connor thought she had everything she ever dreamed of after hubby Johnny bought the iconic pub for them. The one thing Jenny didn’t have, for awhile at least, was Johnny’s undivided attention, as he was playing away with former landlady Liz, while suffering the mental agony of his son’s suicide and the discovery of the baby granddaughter he never knew he had. Even though Johnny has ended it with Liz, he’s still keeping Jenny in the dark about the betrayal.
Following the shocking events that enbroiled Liz (Beverley Callard) at Steve (Simon Gregson) and Tracy’s (Kate Ford) wedding, Johnny (Richard Hawley) has been treading carefully with Jenny (Sally-Ann Matthews). He’s being blackmailed over the affair for thousands of pounds by Liz’s fake daughter Hannah (Hannah Ellis Ryan). The last thing he wants is for his wife to get wind of it – because she would almost certainly lose the plot (both figuratively and literally, given her history of mental instability).
Keeping the secret’s even harder for Johnny with Hannah anonymously sending Jenny gifts, alluding to his deception. With Liz now in the doldrums following revelations from the wedding regarding her “daughter,” Johnny’s feeling very nervous, wanting to comfort her but also wary of Jenny catching on. Overwhelmed with guilt, he’s resorted to lavishing attention on his wife, knowing that he could well be a dead man once she finds out!
