Tyrone Dobbs will be stalked by Kirsty Soames in 'Coronation Street'.
The Weatherfield mechanic will come face-to-face with his violent ex-girlfriend upon finding out she has been freed from prison after falsely accusing him of domestic abuse.
Tyrone - played by Alan Halsall - adds extra locks to his house in a bid to protect himself and daughter Ruby, following a series of sinister text messages from Kirsty and even begs local builder Owen Armstrong (Ian Puleston-Davies) to help boost security.
He tells him: "I need some work doing urgently - new locks, bolts on the front and back door and a good burglar alarm.
"I've had a call - Kirsty's been released.
"No conditions no warnings, she can just turn up at any time, which is why I need this doing urgently."
Fiz Stape (Jenny McAlpine) takes matters into her own hands when she learns Kirsty, a former police officer, has been in touch with her boyfriend Tyrone, branding her a "twisted cow" in an angry phone call.
However, a return from actress Natalie Gumede may not be imminent, as a show insider claims the sinister text messages from Kirsty may be cruel hoax by a neighbour on the cobbles.
The source told The Sun newspaper: "It's true Kirsty has been released. But is she the one sending the texts, or is it someone else who's a little closer to home?"
