Ken Barlow's ex-lover Wendy Crozier is to return to Coronation Street this summer, it has been announced.
Wendy, played by Roberta Kerr, appeared in the Weatherfield drama between June 1989 and May 1990.
Council worker Wendy managed to romance Ken by laying on a surprise meal for his birthday.
The couple's affair led to Ken (Bill Roache) and his wife Deirdre (Anne Kirkbride) divorcing.
Ken and Wendy are shocked when they bump into each other at Weatherfield's primary school, where they are both in the running for the new governor's job, according to ITV.
Producer Phil Collinson said in a statement: "Ken's affair with Wendy was one of Coronation Street's defining stories during the '80s.
"Viewers were on the edge of their seats as they watched the disintegration of the Barlows' marriage and over 20 years later I hope they will be again.
"I'm delighted to welcome Roberta back as Wendy and can assure viewers that her reunion with Ken will be one of many must-see storylines this summer."
