Fans of the soap were clearly excited by the prospect of Stephanie’s Courtney Vance taking over ownership of the pub, with one saying: “Love this!”.

Another added: “I hope you've bought the Rovers that would put the cat among the pigeons”.

A third person questioned: “Are you taking over the pub lol?”

While a fourth added: “No way, I was trying to guess who would take over and never guessed you guys.”
