Kevin Kennedy wants to return to "Coronation Street".

The 56-year-old actor's alter ego, Curly Watts, may have departed Weatherfield 15 years ago, but he claims there have been "mutterings" from soap bosses about bringing back the supermarket boss and he'd love to step back on the cobbles.

He said: "I would like to go back. I think Curly was a very interesting character...he was multi-faceted.

"There have been mutterings about me going back. So we'll have to wait and see what happens.

"I think the fans always enjoy it when a character returns, it's something they are familiar with.

"I have very good relations with both ITV and Coronation Street. Ultimately it's down to them."

Kevin is "very proud" of his time on "Corrie" and feels humbled when fans still remember him as Curly.

He said: "I always trusted the Coronation Street writers because they rarely missed the mark.

"We were lucky. We were in the right place at the right time.

"And we had an incomparable script that gripped the nation.

"I'm very proud of my history with Coronation Street.

"I still think it's the best thing I've done. I enjoy it when people remember my time there. It's humbling. People remember the stories because often they tied in with something happening in their personal life at the time."

Current showrunner Kate Oates has overseen some hard-hitting storylines on the show in recent months, including the rape of David Platt and Aidan Connor's suicide, and Kevin has been impressed with her "brave" choices.

He told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "I think Kate has been very brave and she's realised the show has to appeal to a wider audience.

"The subjects aren't easy to do. But they've been handled really well and in a "Coronation Street" way."
