Jennie left Coronation Street last year to go on maternity leave.

The actress welcomed her second child, a baby girl named Hilda, in October with her husband Chris Farr.

The couple also have a four-year-old son named Albert.

On screen, Fiz left the cobbles with daughter Hope to take her daughter to Birmingham in the hope her bad behaviour could be dealt with in a specialist unit.

Viewers saw Hope's behaviour getting worse resulting in her exclusion from Bessie Street Primary school for biting a teacher.

Hope also deliberately let Evelyn's dog Cerberus go on a tram bound for Rochdale. She refused to apologise to Evelyn who was furious.

Fiz and Tyrone decided to go to visit a therapist about the little girl's behaviour and Tyrone found a school that could help.

Coronation Street is on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
