James Roache will reprise his role as Coronation Street's James Cunningham in 2011.

Roache played his real-life father William's (Ken Barlow) unknown grandson, while his character's father Lawrence is portrayed by James's actual brother Linus.

In the soap, Lawrence held strong homophobic views which caused problems for his family as James is gay.

The show's official website revealed that filming for James's return will begin in March, though no announcement has been made regarding any storylines. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
