Troublesome Toyah Battersby (Georgia Taylor) is set to return to the 'Coronation Street' cobbles in 2013
'Coronation Street' character Toyah Battersby is returning to the soap.
Actress Georgia Taylor left the soap in 2003 to pursue other projects, but may make a comeback as a completely revamped person as part of an overhaul of the show by producers.
A source said: "There has been talk for a few months now that Toyah's character could return - which would be ¬brilliant news for Georgia who loved being in Corrie all those years ago.
"There is endless scope for terrific storylines with her step-sister Leanne (Jane Danson)."
She first joined the soap in 1997 as part of the troubled Battersby family, and step-sister Leanne has recently mentioned her ahead of a trip to visit her in London in January, setting up a possible return.
Commenting on the possible return, Georgia said: "She's meant to have been in London for eight years so there should be a back story for that.
"And in a way I'd have to reinvent her because for most of the time on the show I felt I was playing a teenager.
"I'm 32 now - so automatically that changes things!"
