Coronation Street star returns to soap after 10 years

Coronation Street star returns to soap after 10 years
Rachel Leskovac reprises her role as Natasha Blakeman on Coronation Street to throw a spanner in the works for Nick and Leanne.

Rachel Leskovac is returning to Coronation Street for a new storyline 10 years after she left the show.

The actress starred on the soap for two years as hairdresser Natasha Blakeman, who became involved in a messy relationship with Nick Tilsley (Ben Price).

Natasha fled the cobbles in the back of a taxi, having taken an overdose after Nick dumped her for secretly aborting their baby.

Nick and Leanne (Jane Danson) are now coming to terms with the news that Oliver has a life-limiting condition and, on a trip to the hospital in an episode airing this autumn, Nick is shocked to bump into Natasha.

The pair catch up on the events of their lives over the last decade but Nick decides not to tell Leanne about the chance encounter, adding extra strain on their already-fragile relationship.

Coronation Street continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV.
