Former Coronation Street star Sherrie Hewson, 68, who played Maureen Webster for five years, recalled her time on the soap and admitted she wants to get back involved with the Webster family as there is unfinished business.
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, the actress said: “I played Maureen for five years and I love Coronation Street, I loved my time there.”
She added: “I don’t think Maureen ever finished her story… because I [Maureen] still live in Germany for some reason, I can’t remember the reason why now, but I could possibly come back.
“I am connected still. You have to have what they call hooks in soaps.
“I married Kevin Webster’s father, Bill Webster [played by Peter Armitage].
“I don’t know what happened to his character, I don’t whether he died but he’s certainly not in it.
“So I am connected to Sally Webster [Sally Dynevor], Kevin Webster [Michael Le Vell] and all the Websters, so I am a step somebody… a step mother or whatever.
“Also, Bill Webster, I think he owned the garage, so he left and I’ve always had a theory that I still have a part of that garage and I believe I can go and say, ‘I want that garage back’.
“There’s your storyline, I should pitch it and say to Kevin, ’Sorry Maureen is back now and I know your father is around now so I want to be a part of that garage’.”
Sherrie also revealed she left the ITV soap as the producers at the time believed her character wasn’t working.
The actress divulged: “It was all to do with timing. All the soaps are to do with timing.
“New producers come in and they look at characters and think, ‘For me that’s not working,’ so that is what happened really.
“The producer at the time decided those characters were not working.”
Since leaving the Cobbles, Sherrie has gone on to star in the likes Benidorm and Emmerdale.
She was also a regular panelist on Loose Women for 15 years up until 2016.
Explaining her reasons for leaving the chat show, she commented: “I did 15 years and at the time I was doing Benidorm.
“It was just timing really, it was time to have a break, but I love it and miss the girls.”
Meanwhile, Sherrie is ready to embark on a national tour for a Soap in the Cinema, a new An Audience With-style show.
The tour is set to start in Manchester on October 14 and will feature Sherrie, Emmerdale star Chris Chittell and EastEnders’ legends John Altman and Sid Owen.
The show is holding X Factor-style open auditions where members of the public and a dog will have the chance to star in a brand new soap coming to cinemas next year.
