Former Coronation Street star Kevin Kennedy has admitted he would love to return to the cobbles and the character he played for 20 years.
Kevin starred as Curly Watts between 1983 and 2003 and now hopes to make a comeback after a long stretch in theatre.
It’s no secret I would love to go back.
“It’s no secret I would love to go back and do some more and if that opportunity arises then brilliant.
“The irony of it is that one of the excuses for people leaving is to spend more time with their family but I would have to go back to spend more time with mine because I’m always on the road.”
He said: “We are touring all over the UK so when we go up to Manchester I will go and have a cup of tea with my Coronation Street friends.”
“It would be very churlish and arrogant of me to deny that body of work. I’m very proud of my work on Coronation Street and the stories that we did with the writers and other actors and it’s a life calendar thing – people remember a story from what was going on in their lives.”
“The disease gets press but nobody talks about the recovery, but millions have been through the same thing I have and are in recovery and leading a happy full life,” he said.

The interview took a lighter turn when he reduced Lorraine to fits of giggles as she spotted he still had a shop security tag on the leg of his jeans.
He said: “I bought these jeans to come on the telly and then noticed this. Honest, John Lewis, I didn’t steal them! They didn’t beep when I left the shop!
Lorraine was reduced to a fit of giggles and instructed him not to walk through any security barriers while he was wearing them.
