Jenny Bradley is coming back to Corrie

We are very happy to confirm that Jenny Bradley is to make a return to the cobbles after an absence of 21 years.

Jenny, played by actress Sally Ann Matthews, will arrive back in Weatherfield early next year as a love interest for Kevin Webster.

The couple meet online when Kevin turns to internet dating to try and find a girlfriend. He’s shocked when he arranges to meet a mystery woman and discovers it is none other than Jenny, daughter of infamous Corrie villain Alan Bradley.

She in turn admits that she has started internet dating after a nasty divorce and was intrigued to find Kevin online - and confesses she had a bit of a crush on him when they were younger!

The pair start dating but how will Jenny’s foster mum Rita react when she finds out about the relationship?

Jenny Bradley on the Street in 1989

The pair have not spoken since 1993 when Jenny returned briefly to the Street and it became clear that she was after Rita's money to set up a business. Furious Rita wrote her a cheque for £1000 and sent her packing.

Jenny, now a 43-year-old divorcee, first joined the show in January 1986, working for Rita and Mavis as a teenage papergirl at The Kabin.

When her mum was killed in a car crash, she was placed in temporary foster care with Rita, and was reunited with her estranged father Alan.

Alan's shocking death by Blackpool tram

Alan and Rita began dating but things turned sour. He was a cheat and a swindler and turned violent when Rita confronted him.

Alan spent time in prison but Rita suffered a breakdown in 1989 and Alan was killed by a Blackpool tram trying to bring her home.

Jenny blamed Rita for her dad's downfall and death, but eventually they got back on track, and Rita remained a surrogate mum to Jenny until their fall out in 1993.

Sally Ann Matthews said:

"I'm as intrigued as everyone else to find out what Jenny has been up to for the last 21 years!

"I'm thrilled to be invited back and can't wait to get started."
