George Banks is set to reprise his role as the soap villain in the coming weeks, when his character crosses paths with his ex-girlfriend Gemma Winter-Brown (Dolly-Rose Campbell).
Henry was last seen being taken hostage by some gangsters in the back of a car in 2018, and has not been seen since, with viewers left to ponder his fate.
However, TV Times (via Digital Spy) reports that the character will return in a guest capacity, as Gemma begins a new job working for Henry in the wake of her financial problems with now-husband Chesney.
Henry was first introduced in 2017 as the grandson of Cecil Newton, the former director of the Rovers Return brewery Newton & Ridley.
Although he first began dating Gemma as part of a bet, the pair later romantically reunited, before he attempted to buy the Rovers, only to be outbid by Jenny and Johnny Connor.
George’s return as Henry is the latest in a line of casting announcements for the ITV soap.
Claire Sweeney recently made her debut as Tyrone Dobbs’ long-lost mother and Evelyn Plummer’s daughter Cassie, while two other new faces are set to join this month.
Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
