Slightly sozzled Jenny slurred: “A sharp tang of green apples and some grass overtones perhaps. I even detect a hint of sulphur in the aftertaste.”

Evelyn ended up drunk texting Roy Cropper about an emergency causing him to come running to her.

And when he did find her, she’d forgotten why she text him in the first place.

Actress Sally Ann Matthews has teased the newcomer will arrive in a bombshell storyline.

She told The Sunday People: “Jenny is going to have a family member join the show, someone the audience knows nothing about.”

Jenny’s only family on the cobbles so far is her foster mother, Rita Tanner.

Rita was in a relationship with Jenny’s villainous father, Alan Bradley, who famously died under a tram in Blackpool while trying to hurt Rita.

And now, it seems the clan is set to expand. However bosses are staying tight-lipped on who the newcomer is.
