We are counting down the days until this character's return!

Few soaps do comebacks as well as Corrie. And the latest star to make a return to the cobbles is sure to delight the show’s loyal fans.

And we can reveal that, that character is no less than Toyah Battersby! Leanne’s younger sister made waves when she first appeared on the soap in 1997, and left Coronation Street with an equally dramatic storyline in 2003.

After her college lecturer boyfriend got her best friend Maria pregnant, Toyah – played by Georgia Taylor – waved goodbye to Weatherfield. And all the drama that went with it. Now more than a decade later she will return to her former home, for a touching Christmas reunion.

Why is Toyah back?

13 years have passed since the two met face to face, and with Leanne now pregnant with Steve McDonald’s baby, there’ll be plenty for the sister’s to catch up on. But the question on everyone’s lips is bound to be ‘What has Toyah been up to?’.

Corrie doesn’t do things by halves. So in amongst all the small talk, we’re sure Toyah will make a juicy revelation or two. We can’t think of a better way to spend the festive season that by tuning into the soap and watching the action unfold.
