However Jenny has kept in touch with her former stepdaughter over the years.

Speaking about Daisy, Coronation Street producer Iain MacLeod said: “Daisy might seem like sweetness and light at first but can be a maelstrom of minxy mischief when the mood takes her.

“She revels in devilment and can be very self-serving but she’s fiercely loyal to those she cares about – although her loyalties can change in a heartbeat.

“Above all, she will bring chaos and conflict into Jenny’s life, as her stepmum tries to make up for walking out on her some years ago.”

Who is Charlotte Jordan? What else has she appeared in.

Speaking about her new role, Charlotte said: “I am thrilled to be joining such a well-beloved and iconic show like Corrie during its 60th anniversary and especially whilst living in such uncertain times.

“Daisy has been a delight to play so far with her lack of filter and flirty nature but there’s certainly more to her than meets the eye. I’m excited to flesh her out and see what lies ahead for hers and Jenny’s relationship.”
