[A]lison King is making a return to Coronation Street it’s been revealed.
Sources at the ITV soap have said that Alison has been in talks for a number of months about her character Carla Connor.
Carla first arrived on the cobbles in 2006 and was the main player for nearly ten years before leaving the show in 2015, since new producer Kate took over the running of the show last year she’s tried to lure Alison back to Weatherfield.
Speaking in 2015 about why she’s decided to leave she said: “It’s incredibly hard. A lot of Carla’s stories are high-octane, emotional stuff. Learning it takes up my weekends and it can be exhausting to do.”
A source behind the camera said: “For a few months now they have been in secret talks and the word among the cast is that Ali has agreed.”
Carla has been involved in a number of high profile plots including running underworld, miscarriages, weddings and affairs and being raped by evil Frank Foster.
Carla is set to return at the end of the year.
