Coronation Street star Paula Lane is gearing up for her return to the soap after going on maternity leave.

Last night, Paula shared a picture of her rehearsal script, getting fans pretty excited for her upcoming screen return.

Actress Paula welcomed a son with her husband Tom Shaw on New Year's Day. This is the couple's first child together.

And, Paula has already popped back to the cobbles to give her little boy a tour. She tweeted last month: "Loved taking my little man to visit the cobbles! Even though he slept the entire time I'm sure he loved all the attention!"

Last month, Paula confirmed to fans via Twitter: "So many of you asking when Kylie is back on screen, it's going to be around May time. I'm back filming next month all being well!"

Viewers last saw Kylie leave Weatherfield at Christmas, after her drug-taking and secret meetings with ex-boyfriend Callum led to the breakdown of her marriage to David.
