HOOTERS have been forced to deny they are opening their second outlet in the UK… in Coatbridge.
The American restaurant empire, famous for its attractive female staff in skimpy outfits, has branches all across the US and in Europe.
And this week, a rumour was sparked that the chain was coming to Monklands after an image was shared of an ‘Opening Soon’ poster outside the former post office on Coatbridge main street.
The dubious snap drew a series of responses from Glaswegians – with one user hitting out with the hilarious put-down: ‘Shut it, yer maw works in Hooters.”
But the manager of the UK’s only Hooters down in Nottingham has nipped the latest tittle-tattle in the bud.
He said: “Nope. As the UK’s only franchise we have the right to refuse, and they would have to go through us first to open it. We haven’t heard.
“It would be great for the brand, but unfortunately it’s not true.”

The former post office was bought over by Blackpool-based chain Amber Taverns earlier this year and is set to be converted into a community pub.
