A Coronation Street legend has hinted at a possible return.Katherine Kelly, who shot to fame as Weatherfield’s Becky McDonald, admitted she is regularly asked to come back by ITV bosses. While she hasn’t been able to accept the offer as of yet, that doesn’t mean fans shouldn’t expect her to turn up on the cobbles in the not too distant future.
“I’ve been asked back a lot and I’ve always been working, but I would definitely never turn my back on that show – it has a huge place in my heart,” she told Woman’s Own. The Mr Selfridge star added: “I’ve always said that I’d never say never to it.”
Opening up about why she hasn’t yet returned to the cobbles, Katherine explained that the location of the set can be an issue. “Manchester never really worked for me long-term because I’m not from there, I’m based in London,” she added. “Logistically it’s not as simple as it seems.”
Corrie fans had hoped Becky would return following the death of her sister Kylie earlier this year. However, Roy Cropper then confirmed she would not be coming back for the funeral but had sent flowers.
