And according to a report in The Sun, Soph will go with her after inheriting a huge sum of money from her aunt Debbie, who is set to return to the soap after 33 years.

A source told the publication: "Debbie's return is tinged with sadness as she returns to tell her brother Kevin about a death in the family.

"But it's not all bad news as with the death Debbie has come into a huge sum of money and she wants to share the wealth.

"She hands over a cheque for £200k for Kevin and the kids."

"She's not fulfilled by her job," the insider continued, "and she's growing tired of life on the street living with her dad and Jack.

"Sophie decides to ask girlfriend Paula to take a career break and go with her to see the world and she's stunned when she agrees."

But The Sun then reported Paula will change her mind at the last minute, leaving Sophie and Kate to go alone.
