Terry Duckworth is set to cause trouble for his son Tommy when he returns to 'Coronation Street'.

Terry Duckworth is returning to 'Coronation Street'.

The soap bad boy - played by Nigel Pivaro - snatched his son Tommy (Chris Fountain) from his own parents, Jack and Vera Duckworth, in 1993 in order to sell the tot to his maternal grandparents.

However, the duo are set to be reunited and Terry looks set to cause even more trouble for Tommy upon his return to the cobbles.

Speaking on ITV1's 'Loose Women', Chris said: "We've only just found out that Terry's coming back. I'm looking forward to it because it opens up a whole different side to Tommy that no one's ever seen before and I can't wait for that.

"I hope he's not living with me though. He sold me off for a few grand a few years ago."

While Nigel is thrilled to be returning to the soap, he admitted it will be difficult without Liz Dawn and Bill Tarmey who played his now deceased on-screen parents.

He said: "Part of the excitement is that the show has changed so much with so many different characters and set ups it will present Terry with a completely different landscape to that which he knew before.

"I am going to enjoy playing Terry rediscovering his roots, the changes that have taken place and his reaction to them.

"It will be strange and a little sad without my old sparring partners, Bill and Liz with whom I had forged such a strong working and personal relationship, but I relish creating an interesting new rapport with Chris who plays Terry's son Tommy."

'Coronation Street' producer Phil Collinson said: "I'm very excited to be welcoming arch villain Terry Duckworth back. This time though he'll not only be blighting the life of his son Tommy but the lives of every resident with a typically audacious scheme."
