Several familiar faces are set to return to Coronation Street this Easter, ITV bosses have announced.

Jamie Baldwin (Rupert Hill) and Violet Wilson (Jenny Platt) are making a comeback as part of a storyline involving Sean Tully (Antony Cotton).

The long-running soap will follow Sean on a trip to London to visit the son he has with Violet.

Meanwhile Todd Grimshaw, who is played by Bruno Langley, travels back to Weatherfield with his new boyfriend.

"Todd's visit to Weatherfield does not go exactly to plan," said an article on ITV's Coronation Street website.

Further details on the plot have not been disclosed, apart from Sean's scenes will be shot in the capital, where he will also bump into his former boyfriend Marcus, played by Charlie Condou.

Violet and Jamie left the soap in 2008 with her baby Dylan, who was fathered by Sean.

Previous storylines have seen Sean trying to track down his son and seek permission from Violet to see him.
