Casting News: Sarah-Lou returns
Corrie favourite Sarah-Louise Platt is to return to the cobbles - to cause more problems for long suffering mum Gail McIntyre.
Actress Tina O’Brien will start filming early next year and Sarah-Lou will arrive in Weatherfield in Spring, alongside her now teenage daughter Bethany.
Gail is already facing a turbulent few months with her dysfunctional family and will no doubt be delighted her daughter and granddaughter are back in the fold.
The exact details of Sarah’s return to Coronation Street are being kept under wraps but she is sure to make waves not just for the Platts but for the Grimshaws because of her history with both Todd and Jason.
Tina joined the programme in 1999 and was immediately thrust into the spotlight when it was revealed that 13-year-old Sarah was pregnant.
She left Weatherfield in 2007 with Bethany for a new life working Uncle Stephen in Milan.
“I am delighted to be returning. Sarah has a lot of history and unfinished business on the street and I’m looking forward to finding out what she’s been up to and why she’s returned home.”
