Former Coronation Street star Tina O’Brien has denied recent reports that she is set to return to the popular ITV soap.

Last week it was claimed that O’Brien was set to return to the role of Sarah Platt which she last played in 2007.

The actress took to Twitter to reject the claims saying "So a lot of peeps asking if I'm returning to Corrie but I've only read it in paper like everyone else lol."

The story in the Sunday Mirror said Sarah was set to return to the street with her daughter Bethany who would be now 13, the age at which Sarah had her.

O’Brien did recently say she would be willing to come back to the soap in the future.
