JENNY Connor has been giving Leo Thompkins a tough time on recent episodes of Coronation Street.
But with Christmas approaching, will the landlady of the Rovers Inn give the construction worker a chance?
Needless to say, 2021 has been a tough year for Jenny, played by Sally Ann Matthews.
In 2017, Jenny tied the knot with Johnny Connor, played by Richard Hawley.
While his affair with Liz MacDonald caused significant damage to their union, it wasn't until Jenny admitted to her own infidelity with Ronnie Bailey that the two separated.
Following their split, Jenny had a brief romance with Leo (Joe Frost), who appeared in Weatherfield for the first time in September, 2021.

Climbing underground to save Jenny, Johnny received the help of Shona Platt but he fell unconscious and drowned to his death before he could be rescued, during the dramatic Super Soap Week in October, 2021.
