Former Corrie star to make DRAMATIC return to the cobbles

11th Dec 17 | Entertainment News

Could they uncover the truth about Pat Phelan?

It’s safe to say Corrie fans are growing pretty tired of Pat Phelan and his evil ways.

But it looks like the end might finally be in sight for one of the street’s most prolific villains with the confirmation that actress Tisha Merry is returning to the soap.

Tisha, who played Steph Britton in the soap from 2013 to January 2017, was spotted back on set last week in Manchester filming her return.

A show insider told the Daily Star: “Producers got in touch with Tisha about a possible return and she jumped at the chance.”

“She’s really excited to be back at Corrie and working with the rest of the cast again.”

Viewers of the show will remember that Steph left Wesatherfield after boyfriend Andy disappeared without a trace.

We’ve since discovered that Phelan was keeping Andy prisoner before brutally murdering him.

Bosses coaxed Tisha back with a dramatic storyline which we can only imagine involves her uncovering some unpleasant facts about Pat Phelan (or at least we hope so anyway).

The source said: “Steph wants to find out where Andy is. She will stop at nothing until she finds the truth.”

Another source also told the Daily Star: “This is going to be a very dramatic storyline. Pat has been up to no good for a while now but the storyline is coming to a head.”

Corrie continues on TV3 at 7.30pm and 8.30pm tonight or you can catch up on 3Player now.
