Gail Rodwell is to get a shock when her serial killer hubby Richard Hillman comes back from the dead - via a psychic medium.
Sophie Thompson has been cast as quirky medium Rosemary who meets Audrey when she visits her salon and convinces her she has been contacted by her late husband Alf.
Gail is dismissive of Rosemary and her ‘gift’ and warns Audrey to be careful but it isn’t long before Rosemary says she is getting messages from Gail’s dead husbands.
Sophie will first appear on screen in mid March and it isn’t long before Gail is keen to find out just what her late husbands, including Richard want to tell her.
A Corrie spokesperson said:
"Sophie is perfect for the role of Rosemary and we are excited she is joining the cast and working alongside Helen and Sue.
"Gail and Audrey are convinced she is getting messages from Alf and Gail’s husbands. It remains to be seen if she is all she claims to be."
