Rosie Webster divides viewers as she returns to Corrie after five years away

Rosie Webster has returned to Coronation Street in an explosive storyline involving drugs.

The character, played by Helen Flanagan, returned to the cobbles with her sister Sophie (Brooke Vincent) after trying to make it as a model in the US.
