Talking of her first day on set Faye said: “It was like an out of body experience. Just walking around the green room like ‘ok this is the coolest job'”
However last year Faye quit the well-loved soap after four years.
At the time she tweeted: “Thanks to everyone for your amazing support, but after four fabulous years in Weatherfield it’s time for me to explore new opportunities, I’ve loved playing Kate Connor, but she needs a break for a little while and so with a song in my heart I’m off to pastures new. #kana #corrie.”
A statement from ITV went on to say how “the door will be left open” for her return.
