Samia Ghadie to return to Coronation Street in April

Samia Ghadie will return to 'Coronation Street' in April.

The 33-year-old actress - who went on maternity leave from the soap last year - has teased her busybody alter-ego Maria Connor will rock up to the Cobbles in two months' time with some jaw-dropping news after she was seen fleeing to Cyprus with her young son Liam to help her mum and dad on their donkey farm five months ago.

She said: "A special delivery dropped through my letterbox the other day - my 'Corrie' scripts!

"My first couple of blocks back are looking pretty full on. Maria has been a busy girl while she has been away at the Donkey sanctuary in Cyprus! It's not long before everyone learns of her surprise news. I won't spoil what that surprise is but the scripts made me laugh out loud!"

However, the blonde beauty - who has daughter Freya, six, with her ex-husband Matt Smith and four-month-old son Yves with her fiancé Sylvain Longchambon - is concerned her acting may be a little rusty following her career break.

Writing in her OK! magazine column, she said: "I am really looking forward to catching up with everyone at work, a part of me is a bit nervous though, I've not acted for six months so I'll have to get back into the swing of things quickly."
