Corrie is filmed six to eight weeks before it airs, so fans can expect to see Sian arrive on the cobbles in November.
The Cutting It star was seen shooting on location today, wearing a bold orange top with floral detailing and a black miniskirt.
She had a smile on her face as she pulled on a quilted red coat to keep warm in between scenes.
Michael [Kevin Webster] and Simon [Steve MacDonald] were also pictured in jeans and jackets.
