Sue Johnston says she is open to returning to 'Coronation Street' as Gloria Price to visit granddaughters Eva and Leanne

Sue Johnston says she could return to 'Coronation Street'.

The 70-year-old actress, whose character Gloria Price departed Weatherfield in February, is open to reprising her role despite on-screen daughter Michelle Collins also quitting.

Sue thinks Gloria - who left the cobbles to travel the world - could come back to visit her granddaughters Eva Price (Catherine Tyldesley) and Leanne Tilsley (Jane Danson).

Sue said: "[Gloria} flits. My grandchildren are still there. She flits around and she's not stable!"

The veteran actress admits she misses working on 'Corrie', as well as the cast and crew.

Appearing on ITV's 'Lorraine' today (30.04.14), she said: "I miss particularly the people - the crew and the cast. I had so much fun and met so many lovely people. It's a lovely, lovely job."

Sue was stunned by the amount of people who stopped her in the street during her time in 'Corrie' and claims she was "taken aback" by the increased exposure the show gave her.

She added: "I was quite recognised when I go out before I went into 'Coronation Street', but the power of the [show] is unbelievable and it took me aback that the recognition stakes went higher as people love to see you. People love 'Coronation Street' and therefore, if you're in it, you become part of them."
