    Coronation Street is planning a blast from the past as Sally Webster's younger sister Gina Seddon returns to the show.

    Gina hasn't been seen on the cobbles since 1989, but she's now heading back to our screens with a new actress in the role.

    Corrie's surprise new storyline was revealed today (March 15) as Helen Flanagan was pictured filming with new cast member Connie Hyde.


    The upcoming scenes see Helen's character Rosie Webster track down Gina, although there's currently no details on why she's back after all this time.


    Rosie also gets a chance to meet her cousin Leah, who's played by newcomer Molly McGlynn.

    Gina was previously portrayed by actress Julie Foy in 1988 and 1989. Back then, her storylines included a one-night stand with Martin Platt, which caused fireworks on the Street as she was also dating another man called Billy Wyatt at the time.

    Coronation Street's producer Kate Oates first teased Gina's return in an interview with Inside Soap yesterday as she discussed her future plans for the Websters.

    Viewers are about to see Sally go through a tough time as she's targeted by a vicious online troll, so it sounds like she may need all the family support she can get.


    Kate revealed: "Sally and Tim are set to struggle. Sally might be a snob, but she has a good heart and has worked hard to get where she has, working for the council. So the idea that she might be forced out is a frightening one.

    "In the midst of all this, though, there will be another face from the Webster past making a return. Sal's girls are back already, but someone else may soon be turning up who will extend the family even further."

    New arrival Connie Hyde previously played the role of PC Cathy Bradford in The Bill.

    If Coronation Street can bring back characters from the 80s who weren't even around all that much back then, the surely Emmerdale can bring back someone like Sandie Merrick, who is Robert Sugden's half sister. Sandie might as well never have existed, despite being a prominent character in the show for 9 years!
