Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has confirmed that there will be a returning character in Faye Windass' story.

Earlier this week, Faye revealed to Sally that Jackson Hodge had been trying to contact her, and he's set to make a return to the cobbled streets next week.

The scenes begin with Tim confronting Faye about the growing distance between the pair, a strain that they attempt to fix by going on a night out together.

She's then startled upon receiving a message from Jackson, and attempts to hide it from her father.

Later in the week, Jackson arrives at the household and introduces himself to Tim and Sally, explaining that he's Miley's father and they had been trying to contact Faye after moving to the UK.

Perplexed by Faye's actions, Tim attempts to get to the bottom of why she avoided Jackson, and he's shocked to find out that she wants nothing to do with her daughter.

Jackson previously left the UK in 2017, travelling to Canada with his family and daughter after Faye struggled to bond with her.

Previously played by Rhys Cadman, Joseph Williams Evans will now assume the role of the character for future episodes.

Jackson isn't the only character returning to Weatherfield, with Shona Platt due to come back soon after a short time away.

Julia Goulding, who took a brief break for maternity leave, spoke about how excited she was to resume filming Shona's scenes again.

"It's wonderful. My husband is on paternity leave as we're doing shared parental leave," she explained. "I get to come to work and have an actual hot cup of tea without having a child hanging off me.

"It's really nice to be able to sit in the green room and have a brew and a conversation. Not that I don't absolutely love being at home, because I do… But it's nice to have that brew," she continued.

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
