The strange woman will arrive in the village just days after the shock death of Joanie Dingle (played by Denise Black) – has she come to make a claim on little Kyle?
While her role on the ITV soap is being kept tightly under wraps, her storyline looks set to take a while to develop as she finds herself locked in the Dingle barn after trying to pay the family a visit.
She will only be discovered when Sarah (Katie Hill) stumbles across her when she heads into the barn herself.
When she realises that the woman is unwell, the youngster is eager to help out and steals food to help her recover.

However, when Debbie heads to the barn to see the mystery woman herself, she is nowhere to be seen.
She hasn't gone very far though as it is later revealed she has checked into the B&B, where she will suffer a shock collapse.
