Bring it on, Jenny Bradley!

I haven't blogged much about Corrie for a few weeks, not because I haven't been watching, but mainly because nothing has really grabbed me. The news yesterday, that Sally Ann Matthews is returning soon as Jenny Bradley has changed all that.

The return of Jenny was a masterstroke the first time around. While elements of her return storyline irked me a little, Sally Ann Matthews put in some wonderful performances and clearly relished being back in Coronation Street. In a few short months Sally Ann injected some much needed energy to Weatherfield life and it brought a new, interesting dimension to the character of Kevin Webster.

When Jenny departed, in handcuffs I was really disappointed. It felt like a rushed ending with too many loose ends. I feared it would be the last we would see of her and there was so much else they could have done with the character. So much history there that had not yet been exploited. When Sally Ann said she knew there were more potential stories for Jenny, I really hoped that meant another comeback was on the cards.

So now we know Jenny does return, what happens next? Given that the last time we saw her she was dangling on a balcony in Hull with Kevin's son and had unwittingly played a part in Maddie's demise, it would take a huge turnaround to see Jenny reunited with Kevin. When she does come back, I just can't wait to hear what Sally Webster has to say! 

What I would love to see is Kevin and Jenny rebuild their relationship, for Jenny to get some help with her issue and to see her move in with Rita. There was a distinct lack of Jenny and Rita scenes in her previous stint and I hope this is put right. Let's hope Rita and Jenny can bond once again, put differences behind them and most of all, it gives the fantastic Barbara Knox a proper storyline!

Bring on Jenny's return. I can't wait to see Sally Ann back where she belongs.

This is their chance to readdress their monumental balls-up over Kevin's lost child. Now he's had time to think and make connections between Jenny's plight & his own experience (and the younger generation of writers have had time to look up the old storyline) there's surely scope for a new relationship based on understanding & mutual support to grow. I too want to see her recover her relationship with Rita. Great news that's she's back.

Sophie will never forgive Jenny so could be interesting to watch another split in the Webster family if Kevin and Jenny reunite. At least, it would mean Sally and Kevin won't be an item. It's a bit soon for Jenny to be back in the community but this is Soapland.

Sorry, I never warmed up to Jenny. I was a viewer way back when she was Rita's foster child and didn't like her then either. I don't see the point of her coming back.

She was always my favourite character. How about having her attend a mental health group,like Peter Barlow at AA?
