Charlie Lawson has teased fans with the details of his character Jim McDonald’s return to ‘Coronation Street’, revealing that Jim will make his surprise comeback as one of Peter Barlow’s fellow prisoners.
Peter is currently in jail after being wrongly arrested for the murder of Tina McIntyre and he gets a shock when he realises ‘The Landlord’, who can help him smuggle booze in, is a former Weatherfield resident.
Jim will agree to sell Peter as much alcohol as he likes, however, he does expect a favour in return.
Speaking to Radio Times, Charlie explains: “Jim asks Peter to ask Ken to get a message out and [his son] Steve comes along.
Jim isn’t the only ‘Corrie’ character getting ready to return to the soap next month, as Ken Barlow, played by Bill Roache, and Michael Le Vell’s character Kevin Webster will also return in August.
