Where is Emily Bishop in Coronation Street and why is she not returning properly?
Emily Bishop, played by actress Eileen Derbyshire, is the longest-standing female character in Coronation Street and so her return to our screens ‘ albeit brief ‘ is a welcome one.
Emily makes a cameo on the soap in Wednesday night’s episodes when she appears via video phone to surprise Ken Barlow (William Roache) on his 80th birthday.
Eileen hasn’t made an appearance on the show as her character Emily in almost three years, so her brief return is a nostalgic one.
