Guess who’s back on the cobbles?1websterRosie Webster is making a shock return to Weatherfield, as Helen Flanagan heads back to Coronation Street after five years away from the soap.

The actress will begin filming at the end of this year and will make her on screen return in February.  Rosie will surprise her parents by arriving back to visit them with her sister Sophie when she returns from their trip to Miami. She’ll be back on your screens until the Spring.

Rosie had previously left Weatherfield to star in a reality TV show, and while her mum Sally had gone to visit her, she hadn’t made the return trip to Weatherfield.  Helen said: “I’m so excited to be returning to Coronation Street and being part of the Webster family again.”

Coronation Street producer Kate Oates said: “The Websters have missed Rosie and so have we. With Sophie away on holiday with her sister it seemed like the ideal time to bring Rosie back home with her for a visit. We are delighted that Helen is as keen to explore what Rosie has been up to away from the cobbles as we are.”
