The wayward mother of Fiz and Chesney will appear on screen for six weeks from October this year.

Storyline details for Cilla's return are being kept secret, but Corrie bosses have said it will help facilitate actress Jennie McAlpine (Fiz)'s maternity leave when she takes a break from the show in the autumn to have her first baby.

Wendi Peters said: "I'm really thrilled to have the opportunity to revisit Cilla and the cobbles for a short while and to see what she has been up to for the last seven years."

Coronation Street Producer, Stuart Blackburn, said: "We can't wait to see Cilla back on the cobbles, she's a truly unforgettable character who is at the heart of Corrie's rich history."

Cilla left Weatherfield in October 2007 after inheriting a £45k necklace from a pensioner who died whilst in her care.
