Coronation Street - who's leaving, who's joining, who's returning?

My head's spinning with all the comings and goings being announced lately.

So here, in a nutshell is what we know about Coronation Street's leavers, joiners, returners, movers and shakers - as at May 12 2015. 

Put your left leg in, your left leg out, in, out, in, out, and shake it all about. You do the Corrie hot-pot and you turn around, knees bent, arms stretched, ey up chuck!

I wonder whatever happened to the new character of Howie (Tim's cousin) who was announced ages ago?

Humpty Dumpty said...

There were articles about actors who had auditioned for the part. Howie would have had a storyline with Tim but he's been involved in the one about Faye's pregnancy. I guess that took precedence. Or maybe they couldn't find the right actor or couldn't decide what disability the character had.

It will be nice to see Bev Unwin back.
Thanks for the rundown of who's coming and going!

I'm just curious to know which characters will be long term and which are just short-term.

Am I correct in assuming that Dan, Aidan and Robert are the only confirmed regulars in this list along with the rest of the upcoming extended Connor clan?
I'm just confused with all these long and short term castings coming all at once. (I also collect the Cast Cards and am just curious as to who will soon be available.)
I've heard that Jenny may not stick around and am curious about Adrian and Erica and if they will stay on longer

I thought Samia Ghadie is also suppose to take a maternity leave?

A a special surprise Stella Price will show up at Deirdre's funeral, after all they were once in-laws. She will soon buy herself by comforting all in attendance.
