Co-star Melanie Hill, who plays Maggie Budgen, confirmed Benton's return on Twitter earlier today (August 5).

Hill tweeted that she is "happy" to be back working with Benton but will be "gutted" when he leaves again.

When asked to confirm the news of Chalky's return to Waterloo Road, she replied: "yes!! You heard it here first.."

Chalky left Waterloo Road for a new job in London but his foster son Kevin Skelton (Tommy Lawrence Knight) decided to remain at the school.

In January, Benton revealed that he was missing the show after filming his final scenes.

Waterloo Road returns to BBC One for its ninth series later this month.
