Michelle Collins to join cast of 'Coronation Street'

Friday April 15, 2011

Having had a break from the soap world after ten years starring in EastEnders, Michelle Collins is set to make her comeback.

But instead of Albert Square, the 49-year-old will be gracing Coronation Street as the new landlady of the Rovers Return. 

"I'm honoured to be joining," she said.

"It's been part of my life since I was a child. It is extremely exciting."

Taggart actor John Michie will join her on the street as new couple Stella and Karl, who are set to shake things up a bit.

The new cast members will reportedly begin filming their scenes in the next few weeks.
