PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: See the very first picture as Sue Johnston arrives as Stella Price’s mum Gloria.
Sue started filming on the famous cobbles on Thursday 26th April, as Gloria arrived outside the rain-swept Rovers Return. But from the expression on Stella's face, her unexpected appearance may be far from welcome.
We can reveal that Gloria is set to be thrown into the middle of Stella and Karl's marriage crisis, after returning from Spain where she has been running a bar.
Recently, Karl's gambling spiralled out of control, which nearly cost Stella the Rovers, and when she learnt of his deception, she threw him out. Karl then sought comfort in the arms of Sunita and the two have continued to struggle to control their passion.
It soon becomes clear that Gloria has also been economical with the truth and the sparks will fly between her and her daughter, following her arrival on screen in June.
