Coronation Street star Kym Marsh has pleaded with her pal and former Corrie star to make a return to the ITV soap.
Writing in her OK! magazine column, Kym – who has played Michelle Connor for the past 12 years – demanded Suranne comes back as Karen MacDonald, to sort out her hubby, Steve.

Kym said: “Suranne has said she would consider a return to ‘Corrie’ if it was for Comic Relief after hearing that her on-screen husband Steve McDonald had a secret child last year.
“Suranne has done brilliantly since leaving the show but I think a lot of people still remember her from her time on the show, so it would be good fun to get her back for a short stint – and Steve could certainly do with someone sorting him out!”
Suranne played factory-worker Karen from 2000-2004, making her final appearance on Boxing Day 2004.
Since then, she’s gone on to carve out a brilliant career in TV drama – most notably the smash-hit BBC One show Doctor Foster.
And she’s apparently now looking to start a career behind the camera, as a producer in Los Angeles – something Kym is extremely impressed by.
The former Hear’Say star added: “I heard that she’s been having talks in Los Angeles to become a TV producer, which is very impressive. It’s always nice to see a former co-star go on to do so well.”
Suranne recently revealed that she isn’t totally against a Corrie return for fan favourite Karen.
She said: “I didn’t know Steve had a baby – that is news to me and I am gobsmacked.
“I don’t have time to keep up with Corrie but I’m friends with Jennie McAlphine and Antony Cotton so I do catch up.”
She added: “If it was for a good cause and we were going to raise a lot of money, I’d definitely consider it for Comic Relief.”
Let’s make this happen!
