Nicola Thorp 'so excited' for Corrie return

Share article:

Nicola Thorp is "so excited" for her "Coronation Street" comeback.

The 30-year-old actress hasn't been seen on the cobbles since her alter ego Nicola Rubinstein fled with her baby Zack and step-mother Eileen Grimshaw (Sue Cleaver), but she will make her return in scenes set to air early next year.

In a clip shared on the official "Corrie" Twitter page: "It's my first day back on the set of Corrie. I'm so excited to be back. I've missed you all.

"It's been a long time now since Phelan's reign of terror, but I hope you're all looking forward to what Nicola's going to get up to in January when she's back on screens."

Nicola left the soap over the summer after a year as part of the cast, and her co-star Kym Marsh (Michelle Connor) dropped a big hint at the time that she would be back sooner rather than later.
