Jenny, played by actress Sally Ann Matthews, will arrive back in Weatherfield early next year as a love interest for Kevin Webster.
The couple meet online when Kevin turns to internet dating to try and find a girlfriend. He’s shocked when he arranges to meet a mystery woman and discovers it is none other than Jenny, daughter of infamous Corrie villain Alan Bradley.

Jenny, now a 43-year-old divorcee, first joined the show in January 1986, working for Rita and Mavis as a teenage papergirl at The Kabin.
