Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent has updated fans on her return after she left the soap in 2019 to give birth to her son.
Last year, Brooke went on maternity leave. Meanwhile her character Sophie Webster decided to leave Weatherfield in order to go travelling.
Asked the question during an Instagram Story Q&A, Brooke didn't have a definite answer, however she 'hopes' it's not too long.
She said: "I'm not sure yet as I didn't take typical maternity. I've been on Corrie since I was 11 so it's nice to have some time with my new baby and in our new home before going back. Hopefully not too not long though."
Brooke's son Mexx
Brooke gave birth to her son in October last year. On Instagram, she announced the arrival of Mexx S J Bryan.
Mexx's father is Brooke's boyfriend, professional football player, Kean Bryan.
