The schoolgirl has not been seen onscreen for a while despite the return of her legal guardian Todd Grimshaw last week

Summer returns from her grandmother next month and will now be played by new actress Harriet Bibby

Harriet was cast for the role after Matilda decided to leave Coronation Street earlier this year to explore new opportunities

Matilda said: « I want to thank my second family, the cast, crew and viewers who have supported me during my time on the cobbles

« After three and a half beautiful years, I felt it was time for a change and I am delighted to start this next chapter with a new role »

While tensions are already high between Billy and Paul over Todd’s return, Summer’s arrival is sure to complicate matters

Lincolnshire-born actress Harriet trained at Alra North and has played roles in Doctors and Brassic

« My family has been watching the show for years and I already feel like part of the family

« Matilda wished me good luck, which was lovely! I can’t wait to shine Summer’s sass and sparkle »
