What is Shona’s comeback storyline in Corrie?

Fans were devastated when Shona was shot by an unhinged Derek Milligan at the end of last year and left in a coma.

Shona then defied all odds by surviving when the consultant removed her breathing tube.

But the newlywed suffered severe memory loss and couldn’t even remember her husband David.

Her exit then came as she was moved to a specialist unit in Leeds to start on the long road to recovery.

Her comeback storyline will continue from this point onwards, and fans will have to tune in to find out whether her memory is back…

Alongside Shona, her onscreen son Clayton was also spotted filming again.

But with exact details being kept firmly under wraps, fans will have to tune in to find out how he’s involved in Shona’s return.

Why did Shona leave Coronation Street?

Actress Julia Goulding temporarily left the soap in January to go on maternity leave after giving birth to a baby boy – Franklin Wolf Silver – in November.

The star announced back in May 2019 that she was expecting a baby with husband Ben Silver after tying the knot in February.

She told fans: “Ben and I are delighted to announce that we are expecting our first baby at the end of this year!

“We are absolutely overjoyed and can’t wait to meet our little one!”

The soap’s Twitter account shared a clip of Julia back on set at the end of last month.

Julia could be seen in a big red parka as she jumped into the shot to deliver the good news to Corrie’s fans: “Hi everyone, you may be wondering why I’m wearing my Coronation Street warm coat… it’s ’cause Shona’s back!”

Fans flocked to Twitter to express their delight at Julia’s return.

One fan said: “Ah, what fantastic news! Great to see her!”

Another added: “Hope David and Shona can be happy for once.”

A third said: “That’s fantastic aww bless you. You are definitely missed on screen. Looking great.”
