Coronation Street's Helen Worth 'delighted' by Tina O'Brien return
Helen Worth has admitted she's "delighted" her on-screen daughter Tina O'Brien is to return to 'Coronation Street' next year
'Coronation Street' star Helen Worth is "delighted" Tina O'Brien is returning to the soap.
The 63-year-old actress, who stars as Gail Platt on the ITV soap, has confessed she's looking forward to being reunited with her on-screen daughter Sarah-Louise Platt - who announced her return yesterday (24.10.14).
Helen told 'Good Morning Britain': "I'm absolutely delighted she's coming back.
"I found out yesterday for sure, I can't wait to welcome her back."
Tina, 31, last appeared in the Manchester-based soap as the teenage tearaway nearly seven years ago, after joining in 1999, and has been involved in a large number of controversial storylines including one in which her character fell pregnant at just 13-years-old.
Sarah's return to Weatherfield's famous cobbles in early 2015 will be sure to cause some drama between brothers Jason (Ryan Thomas) and Todd Grimshaw (Bruno Langley), both of whom she dated, and her own siblings David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) and Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) but Helen says Gail will be there to stick up for her daughter.
She added: "I think ultimately, in the end, Gail will always keep her family together. She's like a lion, she looks after her cubs."
