It has not been revealed when or if Sophie will be returning to the cobbles soon.

In an interview with Daily Star in August last year Brooke revealed she is focusing on her two sons.

When asked if her character will return to the show she joked: “Yes, I hope so! Ring them up and ask them if they’ll give me my job – don’t go killing me off.

“I think for anybody that’s a mum going back to work, I think they’re excited to a) have a hot cup of tea – my teas are never hot anymore – and b) just having that time to just be you and not have to second guess what’s going on. You’re just not in mum mode.
