Coronation Street boss teases Rosie Webster comeback storyline

Rosie looks set to cause trouble for her sister Sophie


It looks as though Rosie Webster will be a source of stress for her sister when she returns to Coronation Street in spring 2017.


Show boss Kate Oates has been teasing more about the character’s comeback – and it isn’t looking so rosy for Sophie. Speaking about Rosie’s appearance, producer Oates said:

“Rosie is such a colourful character – I thought it’d be great for Sophie. I wanted to see Sophie led up the garden path a little bit and to see her in a bit of trouble. And I think that Rosie will cause Sophie a lot of headaches.”

Actress Helen Flanagan is due to start filming at the end of the year, with Sophie set to arrive in Weatherfield with her errant sister in tow during February 2017.

Flanagan, 26, said recently: “I’m so excited to be returning to Coronation Street and being part of the Webster family again.”
