Sally Ann Matthews calls for Mathew Bose's Emmerdale return

Share article:

Sally Ann Matthews has urged "Emmerdale" bosses to bring back Mathew Bose and Hayley Tamaddon.

The "Coronation Street" star would love to see her pal Mathew - who played Paul Lambert on an off from 2004 to 2015 - back on the rival ITV soap, and she has also supported calls for Hayley to reprise her role as Del Dingle in the Dales.

She tweeted: "Absolutely @emmerdale should bring back @mathewbose! x (sic)

Sally has warned show bosses she will send them a "death glare" if they do not sign Mathew back up for the soap.

She wrote on Twitter: "Woe betide you if you let me down .... x

Nicola Wheeler, who plays Paul's half-sister Nicola King on the show, also joined the social media campaign to get Mathew back on the soap, admitting she "concurs" with Sally.

Sally - who plays Jenny Bradley in "Corrie" - then wrote: "I double, triple, quadruple concur @emmerdale! He's her brother and as a loyal viewer I NEED to see that story!!!!! x (sic)"

The 47-year-old star's comments come after TV presenter Lorraine Kelly suggested the "ridiculously handsome" Mathew - who initially played Paul from 2004 to 2009 - should be welcomed back to the soap "with open arms".

She wrote: "I'm sure you recall Emmerdale's Paul Lambert, who made a huge impact during his five years in the Dales.

"Paul was played by the ridiculously handsome Mathew Bose, who must have a painting in the attic because he hasn't aged a day since leaving school.

"Surely his return is long overdue. His family are still in "Emmerdale", including dad Rodney Blackstock, auntie Diane Sugden and his half-sisters. There are lots of layers to Paul, too.

"His alter-ego is drag queen Thelma Louise, while he and his boyfriend Jonny were the first characters in a primetime drama to have a civil partnership, back in 2008.

"Surely such an interesting character should be welcomed back to "Emmerdale" with open arms."
