Speaking of her comeback, Tina said: "I am delighted to be returning. Sarah has a lot of history and unfinished business on the street and I'm looking forward to finding out what she's been up to and why she's returned home."
The second-time mum will be joined by character's now teenage daughter Bethany, who seems to have grown up into something of a wild child.
