Her trip was meant to last three months, but there were worries it would be extended.

Posting a picture of herself and on-screen son Sam, she captioned it: “Here’s my little @JudeRiordan on my shoulder today.

Where did Natasha Blakeman go in Coronation Street?

Natasha had to leave Weatherfield after landing an opportunity to open a new hair salon.

She departed before Christmas to get the staff trained up.

At first, her son Sam was going to go with her – but then he ran away to his dad’s apartment. Sam tried to convince Nick to let him stay with him.

However, when Leanne ruled it out and Natasha said no, it looked like Sam had no option but to go.

But when he saw how much his son needed him, Nick opted to say yes.

He now lives in Natasha’s flat for the three months while she is in London.

And she will definitely be back – so could the former lovers reunite?
