Coronation Street’s Ryan Prescott has confirmed his return to the show, despite his character Ryan Connor bowing out of the street in December.
Viewers will remember that Ryan had a turbulent year, firstly defending colleague Daisy Midgley (Charlotte Jordan) from a horrifying acid attack that saw him scarred for life, then falling madly in love with the her.
The feeling was mutual, with Daisy then catfishing Ryan under the guise that she was his ex-girlfriend Crystal Hyde (Erin Austen).
When Ryan found out he was understandably furious, but the pair reconciled and engaged in a steamy affair, devastating Daisy’s boyfriend Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard).
A shocking twist in the story also saw Ryan turn to using steroids when creating nude content for subscription site O-Vidz, Corrie’s fictional OnlyFans dupe.
After a traumatic year, he left for pastures new in Glasgow having reunited with Crystal to take up a DJ residency, but actor Ryan confirmed yesterday that his exit was less permanent than we initially thought.
‘Is he still not back? He should be back – I thought he was back this week’ Ryan told The Mirror at the TV Choice awards last night.

‘Filming is six to eight weeks ahead of transmission so I’ve been back a month, and so it’s soon’ he added.
‘But sometimes they stretch it out a little bit.’
Fans of the ITV soap will undoubtedly be wondering whether his return could see sparks fly with Daisy again.
‘It’s like a love square now’ he said, referencing Daniel coupling up with his ex Bethany Platt (Lucy Fallon) over the last month.

‘There is room for disaster that’s for sure, I think he’s always going to have a bond with Daisy, there’s always possibilities in the future.’
On his hopes for the character, he added: ‘I’d love to see Ryan come through what happened last year and the denial of the acid attack, be a little bit more grounded, and have a real relationship for once, something a bit more traditional.’
With Bethany writing a shocking tell-all story about his catfishing incident for Chit-Chat magazine, will Ryan pick up a copy and be drawn back to the cobbles?
