Former Coronation Street actress Tisha Merry has hinted she could return to the soap as Steph Britton.

On her YouTube channel, during a Q&A video, the actress was asked if she would return to the soap.

She responded saying: “I didn’t leave to never go back, like I said I left for a little break.

“Corrie was hands down the best years of my life and the hardest years of my life, I did a lot of growing up on that show, I enjoyed it.

“It was something I’d never really done before and I made some lifetime friends and met some incredible people and yeah I would never say never to going back and I think the older I get the more I’m like: ‘I’ve done the things I want to do now, I’m happier to settle and stay in once place and Corrie was amazing for that.’

“Some of my proudest moments were at Corrie and yeah I would never ever say no to going back, but I’m really really glad I took the decision to make a break and kind of find out who I am.

“It was one of the best things I’ve done.”

The actress was also asked if she was planning to make a TV return and said she didn’t come out of the soap to never go back to the small screen.

She said: “I’m not against being on TV, this industry is really difficult sometimes and I audition quite a lot, it’s been really quiet around New Year and Christmas, which it always is.

“But I didn’t come out of Corrie to never return to TV, I kind of wanted a little break and to dip my fingers in other pies and just experiment with what else is out there.

“I was really young when I went into Corrie, I think I was 19 to 25, ’cause I went back again and I just wanted to be a bit more carefree and travel and see things and do other things.
