Tina O'Brien looked rather happy this week as she returned to Coronation Street after nearly eight years.

It was announced in October last year that Tina would be reprising her role as Sarah-Louise Platt, and now she's back preparing to film her first scenes.

Tina was greeted with open arms on Monday (2 February) as she made her return. We bet she's pleased to be back!

The photo, which was shared on Corrie's official Instagram account, read: "Welcome back Tina O'Brien! #SarahLou #Corrie."

Sarah's 14-year-old daughter Bethany will be played by Blackpool-born actress Lucy Fallon, who has already filmed her first scenes on the cobbles.

Lucy landed the stint as teenager Bethany after Nottingham actress Katie Redford was axed following revelations she lied about her age.

Sarah was last seen in Weatherfield in 2007 after leaving with her then young daughter Bethany to start a new life in Milan.

But now they're both coming back and it looks like trouble will be just around the corner!

Bethany will be on screen in late March when she arrives in Weatherfield following a huge fallout with her mum.

Sarah will turn up a week later and is determined to drag her daughter kicking and screaming back to Italy, however, things don't exactly go to plan and Sarah's mum Gail will soon struggle to cope with her family's secrets and lies.
