Coronation Street is bringing back Nicola Rubinstein for a storyline in the new year. Metro.co.uk columnist Nicola Thorp will reprise the role which will see Gary Windass head to visit her and their baby son when he falls ill.
Viewers last saw Nicola leave Weatherfield following the death of her killer dad Pat Phelan but she and Gary had patched things up. However there could be trouble afoot when they come face to face.
The Daily Star on Sunday revealed Nicolas return but Metro.co.uks TV source confirmed that the comeback is for a selection of episodes in January.
They added that Nicola is a character who can return intermittently to the show given her connection to Gary as they have a child together but warned that fans should be prepared for the episodes to potentially cause trouble between Sarah and Gary next year.
