For weeks they had been dropping hints about their plans for the nation’s most beloved boozer.

Everything from turning it into a Gastropub and banning Betty’s hotpot, to adding a Z at the end and making it into a wine bar, had been mulled.

And in last night’s episodes, everything was finally revealed and all was not as it seemed.
