Coronation Street reveals the return of Fiz

But who's the mystery girl?

ITV soap Coronation Street has released a new backstage photograph to its Instagram page, which lets slip the details of Fiz’s comeback.

Corrie veteran Jennie McAlpine, who plays the Weatherfield fave, has been on maternity leave since last year, but will be returning very soon – hurrah.

In the picture, Fiz can be seen at her kitchen table alongside partner Tyrone Dobbs and his grandmother Evelyn.

But there’s another surprise – amidst the other people on set, who are clearly the hair and make-up team, is what appears to be a new character.

Who is this young woman?

Fiz left the Street in November, alongside challenging daughter Hope, to take her to a special school to address her difficult behaviour.

Jennie returned to filming on July 1, sharing a cute picture with Alan Halsall, describing him as her rock. Aww.

Day one. Luckily with my rock, Alan Halsall.

I'm A Celeb star Jennie, 35, gave birth to her second child, daughter Hilda, in October.

She and husband Chris Farr already had four-year-old son, Albert.

Announcing her baby's arrival on Twitter, the actress said: "Our newest addition arrived yesterday.

"Mummy and Daddy very happy. Big brother very proud of his little sister Hilda. We’re all in love."

Another shot from the Saturday sneak peeks shows Lucy Fallon, who plays Bethany Platt, larking around behind the cameras.
