Jim McDonald’s Coronation Street comeback has been surrounded by news headlines, and now another heartbreaking twist has been revealed.
The return of actor Charles Lawson has been one of the most talked about role reprisals of recent years, and it’s all down to the fact it was unveiled recently that he would be coming back to the cobbles with daughter Katie, who he shares with Liz McDonald.
Long-time Corrie fans will remember that Katie tragically died after being born prematurely.
However, it was recently reported that Katie somehow survived in a cruel twist that is set to turn Liz’s entire world upside down.
Australian actress Hannah Ellis Ryan has been cast as the role of Katie, and fellow Corrie actress Kate Ford, better known as the cobbles’ Tracy Barlow, let slip that Jim and Liz’s daughter is now going to be known as Hannah.
There have been hints in the press that Hannah tracked Jim down through his old army records, but Coronation Street officials are yet to confirm the storyline.
It has been reported that Jim is going to be making his big return to the Street with Hannah in tow, but there have been recent paparazzi pictures taken that show Charles Lawson and Beverley Callard filming as Jim and Liz, standing beside a grave.

It is likely that the grave belongs to their (not so) late daughter, and pictures show an emotional Liz with her arm around her ex, clearly comforting him.
But as the pair reminisce about the past, it looks like Hannah’s arrival is going to be a monumental moment for them both, especially if Jim knows about Hannah surviving all those years ago and is hiding the huge secret that she’s actually alive and well.
Could this latest bombshell bring them closer together again, or tear them apart for good?
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
