Liz, who played Vera Duckworth in Corrie for over thirty years, has come out of retirement for a cameo role in Emmerdale, which will be shown during the soap's hour-long Christmas Day episode.
Liz will play Mrs Winterbottom, a demanding guest staying at Eric Pollard's B&B, and she already filmed her scenes this week.
"There's only one show I'd come out of retirement for and it's Emmerdale, particularly as I've celebrated my 76th birthday this week (8 November) so I wanted to mark the occasion," said Liz. "I love my character. What a feisty lady she is! Giving them all a run for their money in the B&B on Christmas Day. She's so rude to them which isn't like me at all."
Liz also thanked the cast and crew for her short time on set.
She continued: "The cast and production team at Emmerdale have been so lovely and really looked after me and I was particularly pleased to be directed by Tony Prescott. I've worked with him over many years at Corrie and he's a lovely man, really good at what he does and very creative.
"I'll be looking forward to seeing my scene on Christmas Day and introducing you all to Mrs Winterbottom."
In Corrie, Liz was adored by viewers as Vera, especially for her on-screen partnership with husband Jack Duckworth, played by the late Bill Tarmey.
