Hard-up Kelly, played by 30-year-old Tupele Dorgu, will take up the job to make a few extra pounds to supplement her income from working in the nearby Underworld factory, according to reports in The Mirror.
According to the paper, Kelly is asked: “Since when did you become a barmaid?”
To which she replies: “About 30 seconds ago… I really need the money so here I am.”
Bookmaker Dan Mason is also said to fall for Kelly when he spots her in the pub.
Kelly will be the 51st woman to take up a job at the Rovers Return.
