'Coronation Street' star Brooke Vincent isn't planning to return to the cobbles "just yet", because she is concentrating on motherhood and her stationery business Oh So B
Brooke Vincent has no plans to return to 'Coronation Street' "just yet".
The cobbles star is currently on maternity leave and gave birth to son Mexx 10 months ago, but the actress looks unlikely to reprise her role as Sophie Webster in the near future because she is concentrating on motherhood and her stationery business Oh So B.
In response to a fan who asked if she is returning to 'Corrie', she wrote on her Instagram Story: "Not just yet, I'm really enjoying being a mummy to Mexx and concentrating on @ohsobofficial but corrie is my home and I miss so many people there (sic)"
The star's on-screen mum Sally Dynevor (Sally Metcalfe) recently hinted Brooke and Helen Flanagan – who play her daughters Sophie and Rosie Webster – would return to 'Coronation Street' if her character re-marries Tim Metcalfe.
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 and Tim wed in 2015 but their marriage was later ruled void, because he discovered he was a bigamist following a 2004 Las Vegas marriage.
In May, Brooke admitted she was unsure about her return date because she "didn't take typical maternity" leave.
She said: "I'm not too sure yet, as I didn't take typical maternity.
"I've been on 'Corrie' since I was 11 so it's nice to have some time to be with my new baby and in our new home before going back. Hopefully not too long though."
