Coronation Street is set to get a blast from the past as Kevin Webster's sister Debbie returns to the cobbles after decades away.

Actress Sue Devaney will reprise the role which she last played in 1985, returning to the show for a brief stint in the autumn.

Sue will begin filming for the appearance soon, and will appear in a number of episodes later on this year.

Debbie is Kevin's younger sister and only initially appeared over a couple of months before moving to Southampton with Bill and Elaine.

The last we heard about her was in 2011, when the Websters were informed that Debbie had purchased a villa in Turkey.

Meanwhile, from older faces to newer ones – Corrie has been filming tragic scenes for Emma Brooker as she prepares to scatter her dad's ashes. New photographs have emerged of star Alexandra Mardell saying goodbye at Weatherfield County FC.

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV.
