Kym Marsh begs Suranne Jones to make a return to Coronation Street

She'd be delighted to see her pal back on the cobbles

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.”
