Corrie reveal a fan favourite character is going to be returning VERY soon

He left the cobbles back in February.

But it looks like Coronation Street's Adam Barlow is going to be back in Weatherfield pretty soon.

The long-running soap shared its Saturday Sneak Peeks, a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what they have been filming over the last few days.

Eagle-eyed fans began to celebrate when they noticed Adam in one of the shots, playing tabletop football in Weatherfield's new barber shop.

The solicitor left town back in February, after he found himself caught up in some major drama with Sarah Platt and Gary Windass (who are looking very tense in the behind-the-scenes photo they're in).

He decided he needed a change of scenery and was going to go travelling for a few months, before taking off in a taxi.

Following his 'exit' back in February, fans began to wonder if we would ever be seeing Adam on our telly screens again.

But Coronation Street was quick to assure them that he would only be away "for a little bit".

"We'll see Adam again soon," they promised fans.

The news comes a few weeks after it was confirmed a new family - the Baileys - would be moving to Weatherfield this year.

The family - Edison (or Ed), Aggie, and their sons Michael and James - will be moving into No. 3, having bought the house from Norris.

They'll be appearing on our telly screens (and walking into Weatherfield) from early June.

Coronation Street producer Iain MacLeod said:

"I am really excited to introduce this new family - the audience is going to love them! They’re funny, warm and will pull together through thick and thin as we play out the stories we’ve got lined up for them.

"Parents Edison and Aggie are soulmates who, underneath the banter, will stick up for each other and defend their boys when the going gets tough.

"Eldest son Michael is an exuberant, loveable dreamer with a huge heart and is the glue that holds the family together. James is Michael’s younger brother and best mate, who is a sensitive lad with a secret that he fears will throw his family into turmoil and impact on his career.

"The four actors we’ve cast are all individually brilliant but together they have a truly incredible chemistry. I can’t wait for them to hit the screen!"
