The pair will bring some laughter and comedy to the show

Two old Corrie favourites are set to make a return to the show later in the years.

Nigel Havers, who played Lewis Archer on the show and Rula Lenska, who played hairdresser Claudia Colby are both set to make their comebacks later this year.

The pair will be involved in storylines with hairdresser Audrey Roberts and they will bring some much needed comedy to the soap.

ITV bosses told the Sun: “Producers are delighted to have Nigel and Rula back. They were both hugely popular on the show, and it feels like an age since either of them were last on the cobbles.”

“They are returning this summer but at separate points and in different storylines. Both stories will involve Sue Nicholls, who plays Audrey.”

“Smooth-talking Lewis will have his eye on Audrey, while Claudia is a real thorn in her side, trying to poach her staff and stealing her customers. It will be lots of fun and much more like the Corrie comedy of old.”

Both Rula and Nigel are due to make their separate comebacks in the summer.

Corrie continues on Wednesday on TV3 and 3Player or catch up on last night’s episodes here.
