'Coronation Street' actor Jeremy Sheffield is thrilled Becky McDonald got the "happy ending" she deserved.
The hunky star - whose alter-ego Danny Stratton swept the troubled blonde off her feet to start a new life in Barbados on Monday night (23.01.12) - admitted working with actress Katherine Kelly, who played Becky in the ITV1 soap, was the "most special" part of his stint on the cobbles.
He said: "Landing the part was 100 times better than I expected. I have loved playing Danny.
"The most special thing has been working with Katherine Kelly. She is an amazing actress and it's been nice to be part of a storyline that gave her character a happy ending."
The 45-year-old actor explained he is "sad" to have bowed out of the soap with Katherine, but he would be keen to return to 'Corrie' in the future if the couple's storylines allowed it.
Jeremy added in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "I was really nervous as 'Corrie' is so popular. I was worried I'd have to put on a northern accent, but they assured me I wouldn't. From the word go, people made me feel welcome. I really enjoyed it. I'm sad to leave.
"I don't know how a return to the show could happen, but I really take my hat off to everyone who works on the soap."
More than 12 million viewers tuned in on Monday night (23.01.12) to see Becky's exit from 'Coronation Street'.
