An upcoming Coronation Street storyline will reportedly see The Rovers Return trashed during a fight.

According to The Sun, trouble escalates at Jason Grimshaw's (Ryan Thomas) birthday party when tension rises between Chris Gray (Will Thorpe) and Frank Foster (Andrew Lancel).

The drama will see Street residents including Becky McDonald (Katherine Kelly), Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall), Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain) and Owen Armstrong (Ian Puleston-Davies) become involved in the brawl.

Viewers will apparently see Becky hit by a stripper who is booked to appear at the birthday party. Shocked landlord Steve (Simon Gregson) will be seen arriving back at the height of the drama, as he takes in the damage to the Weatherfield boozer.

"The Rovers has been the scene for lots of punch-ups in the past," an insider told the paper. "Usually there's always someone on hand to drag the fighters apart - until now."

The source added: "This will be the first time that a brawl anything like on this scale has broken out."

Ex-EastEnders star Michelle Collins recently joined the ITV soap's cast as Stella Price, who will take control of The Rovers Return with her husband Karl (John Michie).
