Jenny is currently married to Johnny Connor (Richard Hawley) and so has become part of the Connor clan, but her own family history was explored back in the 80s when she first arrived on the Street.

Jenny's mother Pat was killed in a road accident, while her father was infamous Corrie villain Alan Bradley (Mark Eden). Alan died after being hit by a tram in Blackpool while chasing Jenny's foster mother Rita (Barbara Knox), who he had been tormenting.

Jenny's wider family has not been explored, so a new relative could certainly bring a fresh perspective – although if they're anything like Alan, Jenny will be in for a difficult time.

Sally Ann also confirmed to The Mirror that she's not planning on going anywhere for the time being, explaining that she loves playing Jenny.

"She's insane, so is fun to play. It's a lovely place to be. I've been really lucky. I've had some great stories which I've ­really enjoyed doing," she said. "I miss theatre but there's ­nothing else I want to play. I'm happy."

Jenny's husband Johnny has recently been trying to hide his secret past from his wife, after his old acquaintance Scott Emberton arrived on the cobbles and threatened to reveal some truths to Jenny that she may not like.
