Coronation Street star Jennie McAlpine has revealed she will be returning to the ITV soap shortly after taking a break from the cobble after the birth of her second child, Hilda.

Jennie’s character Fiz Stape waved goodbye to the Street in December but the actress has now confirmed she will be returning with an Instagram post.

The ITV soap star captioned the post: “Friday night reading. Hoping it’s just like riding a bike,” alongside a picture of a mug of tea and a bunch of new Coronation Street scripts. 

Fiz was last seen on the cobbles at the end of last year as she headed to Birmingham to seek a specialist to help daughter Hope with her worrying behaviour.

After a number of mischievous incidents at home, Fiz realised Hope was to blame when she discovered her daughter trying to push her cousin Joseph down the stairs.

The concerned mother didn’t want to accept Hope’s behaviour at first but then the youngster spiralled out of control even further by biting Tyrone Dobbs’ (played by Alan Halsall) daughter Ruby.

Fans were excited to see Jennie’s post and left a number of comments praising the star.

One remarked: “Looking forward to having you back x,” and another said: “It’ll be lovely to see you back. Missed you.”

“You got this! We’re all so happy to be seeing your lovely face and talent back soon,” a third added.

“So glad your coming back. Miss you on Corrie,” another wrote.

A fifth declared: “Aww, that IS good news! makes sense for Fiz and Hope to come back for this summer holidays too.”

Coronation Street star Jennie had previously confirmed her departure from the soap would not be permanent and now fans won’t have too wait to much longer for her return.

During a podcast earlier this year, she revealed: “I do love it.

“The thing is, you never, never know and I can’t ever take it for granted because [the writers] might have other ideas one day.

“But for now, I love it and I live in Manchester. I’ve got my life in Manchester and now two children in Manchester.”

Meanwhile, Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King) will become increasingly isolated in upcoming episodes as Geoff Metcalfe’s (Ian Bartholomew) secret abuse is exposed.

Fans have watched Geoff subtly manipulate Yasmeen over the last few weeks and his controlling behaviour is set to increase.

Over coming episodes, fans will see Geoff’s behaviour escalate as he takes control of Yasmeen’s bank account and sets up CCTV equipment so he can keep an eye on her.

Explaining why the soap decided to tackle this storyline, boss Iain Macleod revealed: “I hope this story will help anyone going through similar experiences in the real world by highlighting that feeling undermined, belittled, controlled or intimidated by your partner is never okay. 

“The old ‘sticks and stones’ adage is just plain wrong – words can be instruments of torture and manipulation.”
