Natasha showed up on the street last year when Nick Tilsley ran into her at Weatherfield General Hospital and it was later revealed that he was in fact the father of her son Sam Blakeman.

Coronation Street viewers saw Natasha exit the show at Christmas after she secured a new job in London where she planned to move temporarily taking Sam with her.

As Sam recently met his dad Nick for the first time and started to connect with him, he was reluctant to leave and asked his mum Natasha if he could stay in Weatherfield with Nick while she was away.

Although initially reluctant, Natasha agreed to let Sam stay behind and live with Nick while she was in London. As Leanne Battersby was in the midst of grieving the loss of her young son Oliver, Nick suggested that he move out temporarily and get his own flat, and move Sam in until Natasha returned.

Natasha said that Nick could move into her flat while she was away so that Sam would be able to stay in his own home.

What will Natasha's return home mean for her relationship with Nick?

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV.
