Tina O'Brien is returning to 'Coronation Street'.
The 31-year-old actress is reprising her role as Sarah-Louise Platt, the daughter of Weatherfield stalwart Gail Platt (Helen Worth), and will make her comeback in early 2015.
In a statement, Tina said: "I am delighted to be returning. Sarah has a lot of history and unfinished business on the street and I'm looking forward to finding out what she's been up to and why she's returned home."
The star joined the series in 1999 and was immediately involved in a major storyline which saw her character get pregnant at the age of just 13.
Tina eventually left the show in 2007 and was written out when Sarah moved to Milan, Italy, to start a new life with her daughter Bethany working for her uncle Stephen.
Sarah will return to the Street with Bethany - who has become a rebellious teenager - and her comeback on the cobbles with cause a commotion for brothers Jason and Todd Grimshaw, whom she both dated, and her own siblings David Platt and Nick Tilsley.
The casting news comes just a few days after Tina and her boyfriend Adam Crofts welcomed their first child, a son, into the world.
