Amber was previously played by Lydia Lloyd-Henry for six months in 2010, before being written out alongside the rest of her on-screen family.

While show bosses have yet to reveal any official information about her return, Amber will be appearing back on screen for three episodes.

Amber was previously mentioned on screen late last year as Finn managed to briefly track down Bella, but the young mum did not appear herself.
