New details have emerged about the return of Jenny Bradley to Coronation Street in early 2015. Actress Sally Ann Matthews is set to make a comeback following an absence of 21 years in order for Jenny to be a love interest for mechanic Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell).
Scenes to be shown next year will see Kevin turn to internet dating to find a girlfriend. But he’s shocked when he arranges to meet a mystery woman and discovers that it’s none other than Jenny, daughter of infamous Corrie villain Alan Bradley.
She in turn admits that she has started internet dating after a nasty divorce and was intrigued to find Kevin online – and confesses she had a bit of a crush on him when they were younger! The pair start dating but how will Jenny’s foster mum Rita (Barbara Knox) react when she finds out about the relationship?
The pair have not spoken since 1993 when Jenny returned briefly to the Street and it became clear that she was after Rita’s money to set up a business. Furious Rita wrote her a cheque for £1000 and sent her packing.
Of her return to Coronation Street, Sally Ann Matthews said: “I’m as intrigued as everyone else to find out what Jenny has been up to for the last 21 years! I’m thrilled to be invited back and can’t wait to get started.”
