Beverley Callard is heading back to Coronation Street more than 20 years after her first appearance on the cobbles.
The actress, who plays Liz McDonald, will be reunited with screen son Steve, played by Simon Gregson, in October.
Her character, who first appeared in 1989, was last seen two-and-a-half years ago when she left Weatherfield for Spain.
She said: "I am coming home and I can't wait. I am so excited to be back, I have missed Liz so it will be great to play her again. Hopefully her skirts will have a got a little bit longer but we will see."
Callard has said she feared she would struggle to learn her lines after suffering memory problems as a result of treatment for depression.
