Coronation Street: Connor McIntyre is up for a return from the dead for Pat Phelan

He replied to a tweet wanting him back

Connor McIntyre is up for his Coronation Street character to return from the dead.

The 58-year-old actor has gone down in Corrie legend after portraying sinister serial killer Pat Phelan from 2013 to 2018.

While his alter ego was finally killed by Anna Windass (Debbie Rush), Connor has hinted he would be keen to return to the cobbles.

In response to a fan who tweeted asking him to "hurry up and come back", he replied using three laughing while crying emojis, and a prayer emoji, as well as putting up a picture of himself giving the thumbs up.

He also responded to several other calls for his cobbles comeback by writing: "#PhelanTheLove"

And Connor appears to be up for returning to Corrie as another character.

No matter what, I'm one of those Corrie villains.

One fan messaged the star suggesting he could make a Weatherfield comeback as "Pat's identical twin Mick Phelan", who could be "hell bent on revenge for the loss of his angelic brother".

Connor replied with a prayer emoji.

The actor clinched the Best Bad Boy gong at the Inside Soap Awards in 2018, just months before Phelan's reign of terror came to an end, and the star felt grateful to be up there in cobbles folklore as one of the show's most notorious villains.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I think it's been Coronation Street's year.

"As great as the other shows have been, Coronation Street have really smashed it this year.

"I've nothing but gratitude. I came for three episodes and here we are all this time later.

"Now, no matter what, I'm one of those Corrie villains."
