Coronation Street’s Emily Bishop returning alongside Norris Cole for Ken Barlow’s birthday in October


EMILY Bishop is returning to Coronation Street.

The legendary character – who is played by actress Eileen Derbyshire in the ITV soap – will make a cameo appearance in October and she won’t be alone as Norris Cole will also return.

Emily will send a video message to her friend Ken

She last appeared on the street in January 2016 when she left to go travelling in Peru to reunite with her nephew Spider.

Actress Eileen has recorded a video message that will be played at Ken Barlow’s 80th birthday party later this year.

The soap announced the comeback on Twitter, posting a picture of Emily and the party receiving the call.

The tweet read: “This week we’re filming Ken’s 80th Birthday party and look who surprises him with a special video message – it’s Emily!

Norris will also return to the cobbles for Ken’s birthday

“See it all on screen in October ”

Emily won’t be the only return as Norris Cole is also making a comeback for the special birthday, months after selling his house to the Bailey family.

He appears in the picture alongside Mary, Audrey, Rita, Claudia, Ken and Adam.

Corrie boss Iain MacLeod previously told The Sun Online how he had been in contact with Eileen about her comeback.

Speaking in April he said: “We’re in talks fairly regularly with Eileen.

“At the moment there’s no plans for her to return, but… the door’s certainly not closed there.”
