Coronation Street confirms Spider return details as Toyah receives a shock

He's back!

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has confirmed the details of Spider Nugent's return to Weatherfield.

Show bosses recently announced that Martin Hancock had reprised the role of Spider, who was last seen in 2003.

In next week's episodes, Spider's reappearance coincides with his ex-girlfriend Toyah Battersby's ongoing troubles.

Still under suspicion over her role in Imran Habeeb's death, Toyah tries to distract herself by organising a protest against waste incineration.

Toyah's sister Leanne insists on joining her for the protest, alongside Mary Taylor, Brian Packham, Nina Lucas and Asha Alahan.

The group manage to successfully block in the council bin wagon on Victoria Street, leaving it at a standstill.

Leanne is concerned when Toyah takes things a step further by leaping into the cab of the bin wagon.

Suddenly, a man makes his way through the protest group and plonks himself down in the cab next to Toyah.

Toyah is surprised when she spots that this mystery arrival is Spider.

The pair catch up and reminisce, before Toyah invites Spider to stay over.

Coronation Street's producer Iain MacLeod recently teased: "Martin is a fabulous actor and Spider is a character with real heritage, and affection from fans. His return heralds an enthralling new story for Toyah, who will be embroiled in a mess of guilt and secrecy when Spider arrives.

"Will he be her saviour or the thing that ruins her life forever?"

Martin Hancock added: "Having the opportunity to walk back onto the cobbles is fabulous, I'm so excited to be seeing a lot of old friends and picking up what Spider has been up to.

"I've always wanted to come back at some point and it just felt like this is the right time. I'm eternally grateful to Iain for the opportunity."

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
