The 57-year-old star is confident her on-screen daughters Brooke (Sophie Webster) and Helen (Rosie Webster) would head back to the cobbles if Sally Metcalfe does finally wed Tim again, after their 2015 nuptials were invalid because he discovered he was a bigamist following a 2004 Las Vegas marriage.

She said: "Every time I speak to Helen and Brooke I say, 'have you told Corrie you would like to come back yet?'"

"If Sally and Tim do get married again I know both my girls would return for that. It would make both mine and Sally's day."

Sally's current storyline sees her character determined to expose her evil father-in-law Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew) after he has been psychologically and emotionally abusing Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King).

And the star remembers when her own alter-ego Sally was a victim of domestic abuse at the hands of boyfriend Greg Kelly (Stephen Billington), admitting she felt "horrendous" acting out the plot.

She added to Inside Soap magazine: "I remember that it was one of the only storylines I've had where I've been home at night and thought, 'Today was horrendous'.

"It's hard going through something like that, spending a day being abused and beaten up, and then coming home to live a normal life.

"I'm sure Shelley is feeling that too, as it takes a lot out of you when someone is screaming at you all day - even when you know it's not real.

"It breaks your heart to know that there are so many people going through it."
