Claire King / To return to Coronation Street
Coronation Street bosses have decided to extend Claire King’s storyline.
The former Emmerdale and Bad Girls actress recently filmed a guest stint with the ITV soap, but show producers are already making plans for her character to return.
As announced in September, Claire will be seen on Coronation Street in the run-up to Christmas as newcomer Erica, who will be a love interest for Nick Tilsley.
Erica is an old friend of Liz McDonald, who previously worked for the Rovers landlady in Spain. She decides to seek Liz out after arriving back in the UK and soon sets her sights on Nick as she settles into Weatherfield.
After a difficult year, Nick will finally enjoy some fun as he embarks on a fling with Erica – which could prove to be the tonic he needs to make a fresh start with his life.
Claire appeared on screen during the festive season, but it won’t be the last time she steps onto the cobbles and will be returning on-screen in the Spring.
Speaking to Digital Spy at the RTS North West Awards, Coronation Street’s producer Stuart Blackburn commented: “I can confirm Claire will be coming back. What an asset to a show.”
