It looks like the rumours are true and a fan favourite is going to be returning to the cobbles. Alison King, who played Carla Connor for nine years is returning to the popular soap.
Alison, 44, left Corrie in 2016 to “pursue other projects” but it was later reported that she was struggling to find work; she was later spotted on the Coronation Street set amid reports soap bosses were trying to persuade her to reprise her role.
A show source told The Sun: “Carla is a hugely popular character with viewers, and Kate always felt it was a shame Ali left. So when the opportunity to talk to her came up, she was delighted. For a few months now they have been in secret talks and the word among the cast is that Ali has agreed.”
