Rosie Webster left Weatherfield last year when actress Helen Flanagan, 28, went on maternity leave as she prepared to welcome her second child with her fiancée Scott Sinclair, 30. Earlier this month, Coronation Street favourite Sally Dynevor, 55, opened up on whether Helen would be making comeback. She appeared on Lorraine via video link, with presenter Lorraine Kelly, 59, saying: “We had [Helen] on last week and she was saying that she really wants to come back. And I know that you would welcome her with open arms because she’s just a delight.”
“Oh my gosh, she’s gorgeous,” Sally gushed.
“I would love her to come back,” she continued, adding: “And I’m sure it won’t be long before she’s back on our screens because she’s so good.”
Sally’s comments came after seven Coronation Street stars confirmed they were leaving the ITV soap.
Bhavna Limbachia, 35, was the first, with Kym Marsh, 42, announcing her upcoming departure shortly afterwards.
Connie Hyde, 49, Tristan Gemmill, 51, Faye Brookes, 31, Katie McGlynn, 25, and Lucy Fallon, 23, are also departing the cobbles.
But could Rosie be set to return following the slew of exits?
Earlier this month, reports emerged Coronation Street bosses were hoping to bring Rosie Webster back once Helen’s maternity leave ended.
A source told The Sun on Sunday bosses wanted to bring back “one of two high-profile stalwarts who are a hit with older viewers”.
“They’re keen for Helen to sign after maternity leave,” the insider claimed.
Meanwhile, Helen told Lorraine she was “definitely” going back to Corrie in the future.
The actress is now mother to four-year-old Mathilda and 11-month-old Delilah with her Celtic star beau.
“I miss Coronation Street so much and I definitely am going to go back,” she said. “Definitely.
“But it’s just working around my girls,” she explained.
“Mathilda’s at the age where she’s four and she’s doing all of her… she needs to be taken to her lessons and what have you.
“And obviously with me living in Scotland, it’s a four-hour drive,” she continued. “And Delilah’s nearly one.
“But I just love it so much. I’ve been there [on Corrie] since I was nine.”
Coronation Street continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
