Helen Flanagan to return to Coronation Street?

Share article:

Helen Flanagan is set to return to "Coronation Street".

The fan favourite - who plays Rosie Webster on the ITV soap - is being wooed by show bosses who are hoping she will return to the cobbles after her current maternity leave.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: "Things are pretty bleak behind the scenes.

"Bosses want to bring joy back, on and off screen. The plan is to bring back one or two high-profile stalwarts who are a hit with older viewers.

"They're keen for Helen to sign after maternity leave. But producers will not budge on the gruelling schedule, and will continue the shock "modern" storylines, even if they risk alienating older viewers."

An insider said: "Kevin has previously said he wants to come back, so it's about agreeing terms and finding the right story.

Kevin, 57, joined the show in 1983 and quit in 2003.

Helen's and Kevin's returns come after it was claimed that six more stars are set to quit, following the recent departures of seven of the cast.

In the past three months, Faye Brookes, Kym Marsh, Katie McGlynn, Lucy Fallon, Connie Hyde, Bhavna Limbachia and Tristan Gemmill have quit and now it has been claimed that six more stars could leave in the near future.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: "I know of another half dozen actors who are considering their positions. The bosses have had a series of meetings to discuss the situation, but don't seem to have come up with any concrete plans. They've got this old-school mindset of ""no one is bigger than "Corrie"."
