Wendi Peters would 'consider' Coronation Street comeback

Share article:

Wendi Peters would "consider" a "Coronation Street" return.

The 50-year-old star portrayed Cilla Battersby-Brown from 2003 to 2007 before returning again in 2014 for a three-week stint, and Wendi has admitted she would head back to the cobbles for another run if "Corrie" scriptwriters have a good storyline idea.

She said: "I love the variety of theatre but never say never to returning. I went back in 2014 for a short time and would consider it again if the storyline was right."

Wendi loved portraying Cilla, and enjoyed her being a character "Corrie" viewers "loved to hate".

She added to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "Cilla was such a popular character, which is crazy because she was so in your face. People just loved to hate her."

Wendi's comments come after she dropped another potential "Corrie" return hint on Sunday (16.09.18) by posting a throwback of her last appearance in Weatherfield, sharing a snap of herself on set alongside Lisa George (Beth Tinker).

She tweeted: "Blimey .. 4 years since I was back on the cobbles for a bit. Time does fly .. #corrie #cilla (sic)"

In April, Jennie McAlpine (Fiz Stape) hinted Wendi could make a "Corrie" comeback as part of her upcoming exit storyline.

She said: "I went to see Cilla, so she could rear her, not so ugly, head again? She could, who knows? Unless Fiz gets pregnant - who knows?"

Jennie is set to depart Weatherfield when she goes on maternity leave in the coming months, and she revealed Maureen Lipman - who has joined the cast as Tyrone Dobbs" (Alan Halsall) grandmother Evelyn Plummer - will be "very involved" in Fiz's departure plot.

She said: "I've got a couple of weeks left filming with the brilliant Maureen.

"She's going to take Fiz's place while I'm gone.

"Evelyn is very involved [with Fiz's exit storyline].

"She's not impressed with our family set up. She's not impressed with Fiz as a wife and mother. It doesn't go very well for the next few weeks, then the family things get a bit ... yeah."
