Jenny Bradley will still be manipulative

Jenny Bradley will be as "manipulative" as ever when she returns to 'Coronation Street'.

Rita Tanner's stepdaughter - who is played by Sally Ann Matthews - will be back in Weatherfield next year and though she initially shows remorse for kidnapping Kevin Webster's son Jack, it won't take long before she is back to her old self.

'Corrie' boss Stuart Blackburn told The Sun's TV Soap supplement: "When Rita comes across Jenny, she is very broken and full of guilt.

"Rita still looks on her as a daughter and, despite the protestations from everyone around her, she gives her a roof over her head.

"There's a period of healing for Jenny, but bit by bit, as we reboot and rebuild, the Jenny of old, who was manipulative and ambitious, is going to return..."

Sally Ann previously revealed she had received death threats over Jenny's previous return plots, which also saw fans blame her for Maddie Heath's death.

She said: "One of the most chilling said, 'I hope you die - you evil bitch.'

"We didn't have Twitter in the old days - people just occasionally shouted at you in the street.

"Basically people thought Jenny was weird and then they blamed her for Maddie's death. But the episode when I slapped Maria Connor was when it all really kicked off on Twitter.

"There were some pretty dramatic reactions. When you read them one after another it's quite overwhelming - people sitting on sofas in the comfort of their own home sending out the vilest things.

"It is so weird - these people hate you because you are playing a horrible character."
