Coronation Street bosses have delighted their loyal fans with the exciting news that Eileen Derbyshire will soon be returning to their screens!

The much-missed actress is set to reprise her role as the legendary Emily Bishop in some special scenes for the birthday of Ken Barlow.

For the appearance - which will mark her first scenes on the soap in more than three years, after she was last seen onscreen in January 2016 - Emily will be seen making a video call to Ken during his 80th birthday bash at the Rovers Return.

Announcing the news, Corrie bosses took Twitter to share a screengrab of Eileen smiling broadly as she filmed her scenes as Emily.

Alongside the picture, they wrote: "This week we're filming Ken's 80th Birthday party and look who surprises him with a special video message - it's Emily!

"See it all on-screen in October".

Eileen had been a soap regular before her departure, playing Emily since 1961 - which made her the soap's longest-standing female character.

The much-loved character left to go travelling in Peru to reunite with her nephew Spider Nugent.
