Coronation Street spoilers follow.

One of Coronation Street's most dangerous villains may be about to return to Weatherfield.

Will Mellor has reportedly been seen filming in character as the soap's killer Harvey Gaskell (via Metro), currently behind bars for his crimes.

It seems that an upcoming storyline will bring Harvey back, though it isn't clear how the murderous drug lord may actually be able to break out of jail. He did escape a prison van once already, so it wouldn't be unlikely for him to find a way out this time around, too.

As fans of the soap will recall, Harvey has caused great pain to the Corrie community when he tragically shot and killed Sam's (Jude Riordan) mum Natasha Blakeman (Rachel Leskovac) believing her to be Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson).

Last week, Mellor was announced as the first contestant of this year's Strictly Come Dancing. The actor said he was "so chuffed" to be taking part in the BBC's dancing contest.

"Not going to lie, it's totally out of my comfort zone and I know it will be a huge challenge but that's what life is all about," he added.
