Coronation Street recently introduced character Daisy Midgeley, the former stepdaughter of Jenny Connor.

In Friday’s episodes (November 27) Jenny told husband Johnny that Daisy and her boyfriend Lee would be stopping by.

However their reunion was a disaster as Johnny told his wife he wanted a divorce. Their lunch ended up with Johnny being arrested for the robbery and hit and run he was involved in over 30 years ago.

After his death, their marriage broke down and Jenny left that life behind.

In 2015 she returned to the cobbles. But she has kept in touch with Daisy over the years

Speaking about her role on Coronation Street, 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.
