Former Coronation Street star Georgia Taylor is set to reprise her role as Toyah Battersby more than 13 years after quitting the programme.

Taylor (36) will return to screens in December for a Christmas reunion with half-sister Leanne, played by Jane Danson.

"I am thrilled to be rejoining my old friends on the cobbles," she said. "Coronation Street has always had a place in my heart and I'm delighted to be working again with my good friend Jane Danson and bringing the Battersby sisters back together.

"The scriptwriters and producers have come up with some fantastic, clever and detailed storylines that have inspired me and I feel excited to get started."
