Coronation Street fans are predicting Ronnie Bailey will buy the Rovers from Johnny Connor.
Recently Johnny discovered his wife Jenny had slept with Ronnie whilst he was in prison.
However Jenny realised she didn’t want to be with Johnny anymore and this week he decided to out the Rovers up for sale.
In last night’s scenes (Wednesday, June 9) Jenny told Rovers staff that the pub had gone on the market.

Coronation Street: What’s next for the Rovers?
In tomorrow night’s episode of the soap (Friday, June 10) Daisy attempts to see off any potential buyers at the Rovers.
Bet Ronnie will buy the Rovers.
She insists to Jenny that they need to raise the cash themselves to buy the pub, but can they get the money?
The Rovers and Purplebricks
Last month it was revealed that Johnny would be selling the pub as ITV announced a new Product Placement partnership with Purplebricks as The Rovers Return goes on the market.
Speaking about the storyline and the product placement, Iain MacLeod said: “The upcoming story around the sale of the Rovers Return stems from something exciting that happens between Jenny and Johnny.
“But it also led to an exciting opportunity to team up with Purplebricks to sell the nation’s most iconic pub.
“The presence of a real Purplebricks sign outside adds a little bit of realism to a really relatable story between two of our best-loved characters.”
Coronation Street airs tomorrow night (June 11) at 7.30pm ITV.
Coronation Street airs on Mondays and Wednesdays 7.30pm and 8.30pm with an hour long episode at 7.30 on Fridays on ITV.
