Who is Violet Wilson in Coronation Street?

Violet is Dylan Wilson’s mum. She’s often mentioned in the soap but hasn’t actually been seen on screen since 2008.

Whilst on the Street, Violet really wanted a child and arranged a plan to have a baby with Sean. However, he was supposed to have no contact with the child.

This turned up not being the case though as Sean became attached to his son. Violet left the Street in a bid to get away from Sean in 2008.

She did however make a one-off appearance in 2011, with these being the last time she was seen on screen.

Dylan eventually ended up moving back to Weatherfield in 2020 and is now living with Sean. But, will Violet’s return change this?
