The 50-year-old star is best known for portraying Janice Battersby on the ITV soap from 1997 to 2011, and the 'Ackley Bridge' actress believes she and her co-stars were so "lucky" to have been cobbles regulars in the late 90s and early 00s.

In response to a video posted by a Twitter user showing a fight between Weatherfield women Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) and Maria Connor (Samia Longchambon), which Janice got involved in, Vicky wrote: "That little vid so made me laugh!!! The good old days!!! We were such lucky folks back then!!! & we knew it!!! GOLDEN ERA!!! (sic)"

Jane also enjoyed watching the clip, writing: "Thanks for this - really made me giggle x (sic)"

Vicky's comments come just two weeks after she tuned into 'Corrie' for the first time in nine years.

She wrote on Twitter: "WATCHING CORRIE FOR THE 1st TIME IN 9 years!!! FUNNY FEELING!! (sic)"

When asked if she could tell the difference between the show's new set compared to the old one she used to work on, she wrote: "I don't think I can!!! Not clever enough for that!!! X (sic)"

Following the tweet, several fans called for Vicky to reprise her role as Janice, with one admitting her character should return to Weatherfield alongside husband Les Battersby - who was played by Bruce Jones - because they were "great to watch".

Vicky replied: "didn't post this for that reaction! But nice words! X (sic)"

In 2017, Vicky hinted she could be set to reprise her role to lend a hand to on-screen step-daughter Leanne after an episode in which Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) was being verbally abusive to her.

She tweeted: "Think I may have to take you in hand lad."
