Innocent viewers all said the same thing tonight as Katherine Kelly appeared in the latest series of the drama.

The hit show returned to ITV tonight, but followed a completely different narrative, as Katherine, playing teacher Sally Wright, was released from prison.

Sally vowed to get her life back on track following her wrongful conviction for the murder of a schoolboy.

The show saw her reconnect with her old friends and try to discover who the real killer was.

There was also a heartbreaking scene where her mum in a home didn't recognise her because her dementia had worsened while Sally was in prison.

But viewers all said the same thing as former Coronation Street star Katherine appeared on screen.

Many of them were excited to see Katherine back on TV, with lots of viewers full of praise for her.

Michelle said: "I am loving @katherine_kelly in Innocent already! What a talented actress."
