Stephen is reunited with the Platt family as an ambulance arrives for Audrey, and he is furious that his mother was left alone all night without anyone noticing.

He later climbs into the ambulance with Audrey as they speed off to the hospital.

As Todd makes his Corrie comeback, Daily Star has taken a look inside his life away from the show.

Corrie past

Stephen is the illegitimate son of Audrey and Geoff Masters and is the oldest half-brother of Gail.

Todd first appeared in Corrie as Stephen in 1996 and then again in 19997.

He was last seen on the Cobbles in 2007 when he returned to visit his family for Christmas.

Stephen later returned to Milan with niece Sarah Platt and her daughter Bethany.

He was unable to attend Gail's fifth wedding to Joe McIntyre.

Rival soap role

Todd appeared in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks as Herb Carter back in 2012.

The character was the husband of Connie Carter and father of Doug Carter.

Doug revealed to his parents that he was gay and in a relationship with Ste Hay.

Struggling to come to terms with the lie and revelation, Herb and Connie returned to the United States without speaking to Doug, leaving him hurt.
