Sean (Antony Cotton) was left stunned last month as he discovered that Betty had entrusted him with the task of continuing her hotpot legacy at the pub.
However, the meal's future at The Rovers is thrown into doubt in the coming days as Sean has a huge row with Stella Price (Michelle Collins) over his lack of hotpot making.
Sean is losing patience with Stella putting pressure on him to create fresh supplies of the dish, so he quits his job and takes the secret recipe with him.
Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) seizes on this opportunity and hires Sean to serve up Betty's hotpot at the Bistro instead. This results in a furious Stella threatening legal action.
Sean is unrepentant until Rita Sullivan (Barbara Knox) informs him that Betty would be turning in her grave if she knew the hotpot was no longer on the Rovers menu. Will Sean patch things up with Stella?
