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.”
