    Coronation Street returnee Todd Boyce was concerned his character Stephen Reid would be recast.

    Having not played Audrey Roberts' son for 15 years, doubts might naturally linger in your mind a bit.

    While opening up about his long-awaited reappearance in Weatherfield, Reid spoke candidly about his fears.

    "I watched the show all the time. I have ever since I was a kid in Australia, it was always on. Then I did it in 1996 and I've never stopped watching," the soap star revealed.

    "I think I was living in fear that they might replace me and get someone else to play Stephen, if I was not available and they needed him to come back. Then in December, my agent said he got a call with an availability check for me to return and [asked], 'Was I interested?'

    "I said I definitely was and then in January I had a Zoom call with [Corrie executive producer] Iain MacLeod, who told me about his plans for the character and I knew it was something I wanted to do, no doubt about it at all. I had a wonderful time last time, so I was excited to come back."

    Further along, the star got onto the subject of reuniting with his old castmates, such as Tina O'Brien (Sarah Platt) and Jack P Shepherd (David Platt).

    "It is absolutely wonderful," he said. "Everyone is older but the biggest change is Tina and Jack, they were out and about partying, going down to London with all the other young ones back then, and now they have children and are grown-ups!

    "And doing scenes with Helen [Worth, who plays Gail Platt] and Sue [Nicholls, who plays Audrey] is making me feel very calm. It was a bit scary at first being back, but once I started working with them all I felt calm."

    Stephen will make his grand return next week.

    I cannot see him having come back just to look after his mom ... every character appearing to be kind and caring in soapland has a grim and dark secret... guess his business is failing and he needs capital injection ... would not mind being totally surprised just for once by no dealings behind anyone's back but I have just seen a pig fly past ...

    I'm really looking forward to the eventual introduction of his wife Gabrielle, surely she's going to make an appearance at some point? She was first named all the way back in 1999 so I don't think the writers would pass up an opportunity to introduce a new character with such a wealth of history.
