First-look pictures of Georgia Taylor’s return to Coronation Street as Toyah Battersby have been revealed.
The much-loved Toyah – who has been absent for 13 years – will make a comeback on Christmas morning to deliver shock news to stepsister Leanne.
Nick and Leanne are just settling down to open their presents when Toyah rocks up with news that her marriage is over! All plans of having a turkey dinner in Liverpool are now cancelled and it looks as though Toyah is sticking around in Weatherfield.
But this, of course, is just the start of the drama. By Boxing Day, Toyah’s husband Toby has turned up and let’s just say that he’s not a happy man.
He tells her they need to talk and begs her to give their marriage another go, promising they can try for a baby again. Toyah’s mind is made up, though, and she asks him to leave.
So what lies ahead for Toyah and is she back in Leanne’s life for good? Speaking recently, show boss Kate Oates teased: “Toyah has led an interesting life away from Weatherfield and she has secrets she has kept even from Leanne.
“Her arrival this Christmas looks set to put the cat amongst the Coronation Street pigeons.”
