Under the strict black and white uniform, soap viewers recognize Denise Black by her roles as Joanie in Emmerdale and Denise in Corrie.

How did Denise Black leave Corrie?

Denise Black portrayed Denise Osbourne on Coronation Street from 1992 to 2017.

Ken was dating hairdresser Denise in 1994, and the couple had a son named Daniel.

She agreed to marry Ken despite having an affair with her brother-in-law Brian Dunkley (Benny Young).

After Ken found out, he ordered Denise to leave, so she moved away with Brian, leaving Daniel in Ken’s care.

Denise briefly returned to the role in 2007 and 2017.

In 2017, Denise returned during an emotionally unstable time for son Daniel.

After taking Ken hostage, Daniel was arrested in connection with Ken’s attack and was eventually released without charge.

Denise decided to move somewhere nearby so she could keep an eye on Daniel.

In October 2018, Denise found out (off screen) that Daniel was engaged to Sinead Tinker and sent him a letter asking for an invitation to their wedding.

Nevertheless, she has not visited Daniel since then or met her grandson Bertie Osbourne.

After Sinead’s death in October 2019, Ken offered to call Denise, but Daniel wasn’t interested.

Even so, fans are keen to see Denise back on the cobblestone streets and the actress may return in the future.
