The 46-year-old actress played Shelley Unwin on the ITV soap from 2001 until 2006 and has now announced she will return for a new documentary to mark the milestone, which will include the likes of Suranne Jones (Karen McDonald), Sarah Lancashire (Raquel Watts) and Julie Goodyear (Bet Lynch) and will take a look back at their time on the famous cobbles.

The soap star discussed whether or not to appear on the show with some of her former co-stars, and admitted the cast all had an "amazing time" filming the special.

Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: "I rang some of the girls doing it and asked them, 'What do you think?' and they were like, 'Why not?' it was an amazing time."

Sally has also opened up about her twin sons, eight-year-old Louie and Victor, and confessed that not only is her job "normal" for them, they seem to have caught the acting bug after appearing in a take for a new drama she's shooting.

She said: "It's normal for them. In fact, they did a take with me yesterday as the drama I was auditioning for featured a young boy.

"My agent was like, 'That's handy.' The only problem is now they're in it and want to know when they're starting.

"On my last day of 'Still Open All Hours' I took them around Pinewood and Louis decided he wants to be an actor, but they're still only eight. Steve and I don't push them in anyway, we just want them to be happy whatever they do."
