Coronation Street solicitor Paula Martin's return to Yasmeen court scene

Blink and you would have missed her!

Coronation Street character Paula Martin made a shock return in last night's episode of the soap (Monday, June 8).

Viewers were introduced to Paula back in 2018 as Sally's solicitor friend.

After her introduction, she made several appearances on the show as she began to date Sophie Webster. However, since February of this year, she hasn't made any appearances.

Paula's past on the cobbles

Whilst she was originally introduced as Sally's friend, she began dating Sally's daughter Sophie.

Their relationship didn't sit well at first with Sally, or Sophie's dad Kevin, however they eventually accepted them as a couple.

During her time on the cobbles, she played a crucial role in Sally's storyline, where she was framed for fraud.

But last year, when Paula could see how much Sophie wanted to go travelling, she encouraged her to go and the pair mutually split up.

Although she stuck around for a while, and even had a one-night-stand with Tracy McDonald, Paula stopped making appearances.

Will we see more of Paula?
