Over Christmas, it was announced that former Corrie star Tina O’Brien was returning to the show this year to reprise her role as Sarah Platt…

However, while speaking to her followers on Twitter, Tina has denied the report – which first appeared in the Daily Mirror – and claims that the first she knew of her supposed return to the show was when she herself read the newspaper’s article.

She tweeted, “So a lot of peeps asking if I’m returning to Corrie but I’ve only read it in paper like everyone else lol.”

In its article, the paper quoted an unnamed show source as claiming that when Sarah returned to Weatherfield, we’d discover that her daughter Bethany has become a teenaged tearaway herself, just like her mum was…

At 13 years old, Bethany was tipped to be the focus of several new storylines, some of which would see her following in her mum’s footsteps – Sarah was of course 13 when she had Bethany – which were supposedly plotlines to be introduced by new producer, Stuart Blackburn, who’s about to leave Emmerdale to take over at Corrie from Phil Collinson.

However, a Coronation Street spokesperson has told Digital Spy that Blackburn “doesn’t take office until January 7, meaning that any reports about his story plans are just speculation.”

Are you sad that it seems Tina won’t be returning as Sarah?

Here’s a reminder of her pregnancy plotline…
