Jane and Georgia's characters first appeared in Weatherfield in 1997, and have been part of the ITV soap ever since.

They arrived with dad Les Battersby, played by Bruce Jones, and mum Janice - better known as actress Vicky Entwhistle.

Jane left in 2000, but returned in 2004 and has been central to several major storylines ever since.

The Street siblings were recently unwittingly involved in an awkward love triangle, when BOTH sisters began dating solicitor Imran Habeeb.

They soon worked out he was two-timing them, however, and kicked him to the curb!

Though Toyah took him back and Leanne is now back with her two-time ex-husband Nick Tilsley.
