Coronation Street airs return scenes for Summer Spellman next week.

The teen character arrives back in Weatherfield after two months away in the US, but she's not arriving alone.

Next week's episodes see Paul Foreman's Motor Neurone Disease (MND) story continue as he attends an appointment with his nurse alongside his husband Billy Mayhew.

Paul is told that as his weakened neck muscles get worse, he won't be able to keep using the stair lift he needs to gain access to their upstairs flat.

Later in the week, Paul receives a visit at home from an Eyegaze specialist, who shows him how to use some new equipment. This will allow Paul to communicate via eye movements which control his computer device.

Summer then arrives back at the flat after flying home from the US. She announces that she has a new boyfriend called Felix, who's waiting to meet Paul and Billy at the Rovers Return.

Just as Paul and Billy are about to leave the flat, their plans for the rest of the day are disrupted as Paul falls down the stairs.

As Paul recovers, Todd Grimshaw turns up and Summer arrives with Felix. How will the meeting go?

Coronation Street bosses have cast former The Tower and Doctors actor Robin Morrissey in the role of Felix.

Summer left Weatherfield on March 27 as she decided to follow her dream of studying in the US for a while.

The teen had been accepted for a temporary transfer to a university in Boston, so she said her goodbyes to her three dads Paul, Billy and Todd.

As Paul has previously shared plans to end his life on his own terms once his MND progresses further, Summer was worried that she might not see him again. However, Paul urged Summer to put herself first and promised that he'd be waiting for her upon her return.

When Summer's departure aired, Digital Spy confirmed that these weren't permanent exit scenes and that she'd be back at a later date.

Coronation Street airs these scenes on Monday, June 10 and Wednesday, June 12.

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