Fans of Coronation Street will know that Stella Price (Michelle Collins) was horrified to learn that the insurance company wouldn’t pay out for the fire damage at the Rovers, and of course, given Owen Armstrong (Ian Puleston-Davies) had begun work on the refit, that news left Stella with a whole heap of debt…

Tonight’s dramatic visit to Coronation Street has seen the fire at the Rovers leave the Street’s residents reeling as lives hang in the balance, including Sunita Alahan (Shobna Gulati) and Stella Price’s…
And in the next trip to Weatherfield on Wednesday night, we’ll see Stella (Michelle Collins) fighting to overcome the effects of smoke inhalation as her worried family sit at her bedside.
As you can see in the clip after the jump, even her normally fairly aloof mum Gloria (Sue Johnston) is moved to tears as she can only watch helplessly on as her daughter clings onto life… Read more & comment »
Coming up next week on Coronation Street, Gloria Price’s fiancé Eric (Timothy West) is going to pass away in the bar of the Rovers, having failed to persuade the gorgeous Eva (Catherine Tyldesley) to leave Weatherfield and travel around the world with him.
However, had he not shuffled off the mortal coil so soon, he may well have talked Eva round, because as we’ll see on Monday, February 25th, after having the day from hell at work, Eva’s giving serious thought to taking elderly Eric up on the offer.
But alas, he’s off to the great snug in the sky, but Gloria (Sue Johnston) certainly won’t shed too many tears, lest she makes the ink on his will run, however, she’s in for a shock when she learns that actually, Eric was broke! Read more & comment »

In next week’s episodes of Coronation Street, Gloria Price turns up like the proverbial bad penny at the Rovers, but she has a man in tow and wastes no time in introducing her new fiancé, Eric!
We of course saw Gloria (Sue Johnston) leave Weatherfield last year after her daughter Stella (Michelle Collins) banished her having learned about Gloria’s part in breaking up Lewis Archer and Audrey Roberts, and having also discovered that her mother cheated to win the Pub of the Year Award.
But, undaunted and unrepentant, Gloria can’t wait to show her fiancé Eric off, and to tell Stella and her granddaughter Eva (Catherine Tyldesley) how rich her new beau is… Read more & comment »
As we reported recently, veteran actor Timothy West is joining the cast of Coronation Street in the role of Eric, who is Gloria Price’s new boyfriend…
And today it’s been revealed that among Eric’s storylines will be his attempt to seduce Gloria’s granddaughter, Eva!
Fans of the show will know that Gloria (Sue Johnston) was banished from The Rovers by her daughter Stella (Michelle Collins) last year after it was revealed that she’d faked customer feedback forms in order to win an award for the pub.
It all backfired rather spectacularly of course, and as mentioned, Gloria was sent packing, but she evidently soon bounced back from her humiliation and when she returns to Weatherfield, it will be with Eric on her arm.
However, the Daily Star reports, “But Eric – played by Timothy West, 78, right – will turn out to be a real sleaze and tries his luck with younger model Eva…” Read more & comment »
Well, we have all been wondering what Gloria Price has been up to in Coronation Street, and now we know!
Fans of the award-winning ITV soap will know how after employing Lewis Archer (Nigel Havers) behind the Rovers Return bar, despite the judgement of Audrey’s (Sue Nichols) family, Gloria (Sue Johnson) has been acting very strangely indeed.

Since she arrived in Weatherfield earlier this year, Gloria Price (Sue Johnston) has proven to be a pathological liar and a cheat, and she’ll do and say pretty much anything to get her own way…
And as we’ve seen recently, because Gloria’s taken a shine to suave Lewis Archer (Nigel Havers) she’s lied yet again and convinced him that she’s dying, just so that she can get him to spend time with her!
But before that particularly black lie, Gloria had of course entered the Rovers into a Pub of the Year contest – behind daughter Stella’s back – and has been conniving to win ever since.
We’ve seen her telling customers what to write on their supposedly anonymous feedback forms – which go towards the judges’ decision about who wins the contest – and even just plain making them up… Read more & comment »
Coronation Street’s newest resident Gloria Price (Sue Johnston) has wasted no time in getting her feet firmly under daughter Stella’s table at the Rovers, and of course, she’s already shown that she loves nothing more than to interfere!
Gloria pushed Stella (Michelle Collins) into entering the Pub of the Year competition, and has ever since been bullying the pub’s customers into writing glowing remarks on feedback forms.
However, her latest stunt to improve the chances of the Rovers winning the accolade will leave Stella dumbfounded and livid!
The storyline begins when Stella’s called away and has to leave the pub in her mother’s care. And Stella’s no sooner out of the door than Gloria puts her latest scheme into action, turning the pub into a B&B… Read more & comment »
In Wednesday night’s trip to Coronation Street, newcomer Gloria is going to literally burst onto our screens when she turns up unannounced at the Rovers in the early hours of the morning, banging loudly on the door until her bleary eyed daughter Stella (Michelle Collins) opens up.
Stunned to see her mum, who’s supposed to be running a bar in Spain, Stella wants to know what’s so urgent that mum Gloria needs to visit all of a sudden, but finding her mum reticent on her reasons for her arrival, Stella gets her mum and drink and along with Eva (Catherine Tyldesley) the trio have a catch up.
However, within hours of her arrival, Gloria is set to make her presence very much felt among the residents! More on that in a moment, but first, Sue Johnston, who of course plays Gloria, has revealed that she was “star struck” when she first arrived on set.
But of course, though this wasn’t her first role on the show – she played bookie’s wife Mrs Chadwick in 1982 – it was the first time that she’d met several members of the cast.
Speaking to TV Biz, Sue said of her co-stars, “I was a bit giddy when I saw them all… Read more & comment »
Actress Sue Johnston is arguably most famous for her role in sitcom The Royle Family as matriarch Barbara Royle, and/or her role in Brookside as Sheila Grant…
However, what many fans may not know is that Sue in fact began her career in TV with an appearance in Coronation Street in the role of Mrs Chadwick – that was in 1982 – and now of course, she’s back, playing the part of feisty Gloria, who is Stella Price’s mum.
And in an interview with the Daily Mirror, Sue revealed that she feels her return to the cobbles was “meant to be.”
She also explained that working on the Manchester based soap also has the advantage of enabling her to be nearer to her son and new grandson, who live in the area.
Sue said, “My son has just had his baby and they live in Manchester… Read more & comment »
As fans of Corrie will doubtless know, The Royle Family star Sue Johnston has joined the cast of the show in the role of Stella Price’s mother, Gloria, and today, we have pictures of Sue’s first scenes on the nation’s favourite Street…
She makes her debut on September 5th, and starts out rather much as it seems she intends to go on – by making a huge row!
Her arrival is announced when Stella (Michelle Collins) and her daughter Eva (Catherine Tyldesley) are woken in the small hours by a hammering on the pub doors.
Racing downstairs, assuming there’s at least a fire somewhere, Stella’s stunned to see her mum Gloria on the doorstep, complete with cases! Read more & comment »
Fans of Coronation Street will of course know that The Royle Family star Sue Johnston has joined the cast of the soap to play the role of Gloria, who is Stella Price’s mum.
It’s been widely publicized that Gloria will be the Street’s latest “battleaxe” and she’ll have no problem letting the locals have it both barrels if they upset her in any way…
However, she seems to have similar disregard for her family’s opinions either, because when Stella (Michelle Collins) has to go away, Gloria takes charge of The Rovers, and decides that the place would be perfect as a B&B.
But not only does that not sit well with the locals, Gloria’s own granddaughter Eva (Catherine Tyldesley) is far from impressed with the plan… Read more & comment »
It had been reported earlier this year that Corrie newcomer Sue Johnston – who of course played the role of Barbara in the Royle Family and Sheila Grant in Brookside – would be on our screens as Stella Price’s (Michelle Collins) battleaxe mum Gloria this month…
However, after Sue was laid low by a “mystery illness” her scheduled debut was put on hold until she was recovered sufficiently to join the cast of the show and begin filming.
She did in fact start filming in April – her original scenes were to have aired during the storyline that saw Stella booting cheating boyfriend Karl (John Michie) out of the Rovers – but soon after had to take leave after she fell ill.
Of Sue’s later than expected arrival on the Street, a Corrie insider told TV Biz, “It’s taken a bit of time to write Sue back in, because the writers needed to find the perfect scenario to introduce her character… Read more & comment »
