Actress Ruxandra Porojnicu is set to make a return to Coronation Street as Alina Pop.
Earlier this year, viewers were introduced to Alina who worked in a nail bar run by a woman named Rachel.
Seb began doing the odd job at the salon and instantly became smitten with Alina, but it wasn’t long before he realised something wasn’t right.
He soon discovered Alina, along with the other workers, were victims of human trafficking and Alina was living in the back of the salon.
After the truth came out and the police raided the salon, the workers, including Alina, were taken to a safe house.
It also came out that Eileen and Seb’s housemate Jan was a police informant trying to help bring down the human traffickers.
Eventually Alina told Seb she would be going home to Romania and didn’t know if or when she would be returning.
Heartbroken, Seb said goodbye to Alina.
However it looks like she could be making her way back to the cobbles soon.
According to The Daily Star a source said: “Alina’s harrowing story was one of the biggest of the year and Ruxandra’s performance during some of the darker scenes was heartbreaking.
“She proved very popular with viewers and everyone was gutted that Alina and Seb didn’t get their happy ending.
“So with her returning later this year it looks like their love story is far from over.
“There’s so much scope for the writers given everything she’s been though. Everyone is very excited about her return.”
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
