Former Coronation Street star Wendi Peters hints at a possible return to the soap

Brace yourselves, Coronation Street fans – the return of the hugely entertaining Cilla Battersby-Brown is very much a possibility.

Actress Wendi Peters, whose last appearance on the cobbles was in 2014, has told the Daily Star Sunday that she would “never say never” when asked about a potential soap comeback.

Getting our hopes up for a suitably ridiculous return plot, Wendi said: “Cilla was such a popular character, which is crazy because she was so in your face. People just loved to hate her.”

Admitting she would certainly “consider” a return to soapland, she added: “I love the variety of theatre but never say never to returning. I went back in 2014 for a short time and would consider it again if the storyline was right.”

One storyline that could have seen Cilla revisit Weatherfield was son Chesney’s (failed) wedding to Sinead earlier this year. Maybe it’s for the best that she didn’t turn up, mind.

“I dip in now and then to see what Fiz and Chesney are up to. Who knows? She may pop back again this year,” Wendi revealed earlier this year when asked about Cilla’s whereabouts.

“I think Chesney’s just been dumped, I think he was getting married or something and has ended up not being married – didn’t invite Cilla to the wedding, obviously.”

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
