Would the Coronation Street icon consider a return to the cobbles?

In a recent interview, Coronation Street icon Nikki Sanderson discussed the possibility of returning to the long-running soap opera. Sanderson, who played the role of hairdresser Candice Stowe from 1999 to 2005, is currently starring on Hollyoaks as Maxine Minniver. However, she revealed that she would “never say never” to a return to her original soap.

The actress’s potential return to Coronation Street has been given more significance due to the announcement that Lucy Fallon, who plays Bethany Platt, will be back on the show. It turns out that Bethany is Candice’s goddaughter, adding an interesting dynamic to the potential storyline.

In an interview with Inside Soap, Sanderson expressed her thoughts on the matter. “Yes, that’s right, she is my goddaughter,” she confirmed. “I don’t feel old enough for Bethany to be so grown up, it’s so weird.” Sanderson went on to say that she is currently happy at Hollyoaks and loves her character Maxine, but she would not rule out a return to Coronation Street in the future.

The news of Fallon’s return to the cobbles is also building anticipation among viewers. The official Coronation Street Instagram page recently shared a behind-the-scenes video of Fallon on her first day back filming. In the video, she expressed her excitement and a bit of nervousness about returning to the show, adding that she can’t wait for viewers to see what Bethany is up to.

The caption of the Instagram post read, “Look who’s back! Bethany returns with a whole new look. Watch out for her arrival on screen towards the end of the year.” This suggests that viewers can expect to see Bethany back on their screens sooner than they might think.

As Bethany returns to the cobbles with a new look, one can’t help but wonder if she still has feelings for her ex-boyfriend, Daniel Osbourne. With another character, Daisy, currently caught up in a love triangle, could Bethany’s return create a love square? The possibilities for dramatic storylines are endless, and fans are eagerly anticipating Bethany’s presence back in Weatherfield.

Coronation Street usually airs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 8pm on ITV. If you’re a soap opera fan, make sure to stay updated with all the latest spoilers, news, and discussions by joining the Soap Daily community.
