Jenny Connor (nee Bradley) is a character in Coronation Street who first appeared in Ep 2584 - 6 Jan 1986. She was the feisty daughter of the memorable villain Alan Bradley. Jenny had a good relationship with Alan's partner Rita Fairclough until Rita found that Jenny was only after her money. In Ep 3604 - 8 Oct 1993, Jenny was given a £1000 cheque from Rita and told to leave town. 22 years later in Ep 8579 - 18 Feb 2015, Jenny returned. She has occasionally shown traits of her late father. Jenny is played by actress Sally Ann Matthews.
In October 1993 one night at Rita's flat, her and Jenny were having a meal and they started chatting but the subject got back to Jenny's late father Alan. Jenny accused Rita of profiting from his death and it became clear to Rita that Jenny was only after her money. Rita said that she will not get a penny when she dies. Rita decided to write Jenny out a cheque for £1000, saying that is all she will ever get out of her. She told Jenny that she is off to bed now and for Jenny to be gone by morning. That night, Jenny quietly left the flat and left Weatherfield. She cut all ties with her old neighbourhood.
1993-2015 Life away from Weatherfield
Over twenty-two years later after leaving Coronation Street, Jenny made contact with former friend Kevin Webster on a dating website in March 2015 and they met at a pub. He was pleased to see her again and they caught up after such a long absence. Jenny later went for a drink with Kevin to the Rovers Return, although she was nervous due to leaving on a sour note with Rita. Jenny was still traumatised from the death of her son and later kidnapped Jake Webster, son of her boyfriend Kevin. Jenny was later sectioned.
Jenny was released from hospital and sent to live at a run-down accommodation. She made contact with Rita via Facebook and the pair met up. When Rita learned of Jenny's terrible conditions, she took her home to stay with her. The Websters weren't pleased, however Kevin accepted her being on the street even though Sally and Sophie didn't. Jenny got a job as a cleaner at Underworld, and began to grow close to the manager Johnny Connor. Johnny's children Aidan Connor and Kate Connor thought Jenny was just after his money.
In September 2017, Jenny and Johnny married. When Johnny got sick of Aidan's antics, he decided not to bother reopening Underworld and instead plan to move to Spain with Jenny and retire. In May 2018, Aidan committed suicide and this lead to tension between Jenny and Johnny. He accused her of wishing Aidan dead. She clumsily poured coffee over his suit and he called her a liability.
