Coronation Street airs exit scenes for two characters

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has aired an exit for Violet Wilson and son Dylan following dramatic court scenes.

Jenny Platt made her return as Violet in Wednesday's (March 20) episode, but she was shown leaving Weatherfield once again by the end of the hour.

As Digital Spy has previously reported, this will not be the end for Violet or Dylan on the cobbles, as Platt signed up for a multi-episode guest arc for her character.

Their temporary exits happened after Dylan pled guilty in court to concealing the zombie knife used to threaten Liam Connor Jr.

Dylan was handed a community service order rather than any custodial sentence, but he didn't have long to celebrate before learning that Eileen Grimshaw had called his mum Violet to come to town.

Violet was irate that neither Sean or Dylan had told her about all of the legal trouble that the boy had got himself into.

Dylan's mum felt she had no choice but to take him back to London with her. In spite of objections from Sean, Dylan soon made a tearful exit from Weatherfield alongside his mum.

"I can't believe I got it so badly wrong," Sean admitted to Eileen.

However, this latest development is merely the next chapter in an ongoing bullying story, as Jenny Platt has hinted the ITV1 soap will explore Violet and Sean's differing parenting styles.

"For Violet, in many ways, I actually think maybe it would be a nice thing for her to be able to just disappear off to London, take Dylan with her, keep him safe and just go back to normal life, and I think that would be the best outcome for Violet and the best thing for Dylan maybe," she said.

"But as an actress, obviously, I've always – I've never felt like, 'Oh, yeah, that's it. I want to put that character to bed.' I loved my time on Coronation Street, and I've always found Violet really lovely to play. She's got heart, and she’s warm, but she's made a lot of mistakes, so I always feel like she's one of us.

"And, of course, I'd love to see what she could get up to if Dylan was getting into more trouble – and especially that idea of co-parenting with a non-romantic partner I find a really interesting one, and one that would be great to develop onscreen."

What will bring Violet and Dylan back to Weatherfield?

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
