Coronation Street‘s Michelle Connor is set to make life difficult for Frank Foster, actress Kym Marsh has revealed.

The feisty barmaid will ‘swing by’ for a short stop in Weatherfield with fiance Ciaran (Keith Duffy) on Thursday, only to extend her stay when she finds out about Carla’s shocking ordeal and the Underworld lingerie factory being on the slide.

Michelle is now determined to help Carla (Alison King) and re-open the factory, as Kym told Coronation Street’s official website: “She’s more than ready to take Frank on. She’s absolutely horrified by what’s happened. She’s very shocked to find out what happened with Carla – Carla never rang her because she didn’t want to bother her.

“She’s really angry to think that not only has he done that, but he’s now destroying her (Carla’s) business and he’s trying to make a fool of her. He’s met his match in Michelle,” the actress added.

Kym – who took maternity leave in January to give birth to daughter Polly – admitted she suffered from nerves before her return.

“It’s great being back. It was really nerve-wracking on the first day, but now it’s like I’ve never been away. I’ve really missed the place,” she said.

“I’ve been away for the best part of the year and it’s only when you get back that you think, ‘I’ve really missed being here.'”
