Jane Danson has confessed she'd love to see her 'Coronation Street' character Leanne Battersby's mother Janice Battersby (Vicky Entwistle) return to the soap

'Coronation Street' star Jane Danson would love Vicky Entwistle to return to the soap.

The 35-year-old actress has starred as Leanne Battersby in the ITV soap for nearly two decades and she's confessed she'd love it if rumours her on-screen step-mum Janice Battersby is set to return were true.

Speaking at the TV Choice Awards at the London Hilton on Park Lane, Jane told BANG Showbiz: "I love that rumour. Obviously I would always champion any Battersby coming back.

"Not only because we're all amazing characters, but we all want to do something really special together. I do like those rumours, but how true they are, I don't know."

The soap star - who herself returned to the show in the year 2000 after departing in 2004 - also spoke about her love of Leanne's flaws.

Commenting on her character's inability to escape her past, she said: "Yeah, I quite like that. She's a victim of the past and it's something Corrie revisits, and I like that side of her character.

"I like the fact that she was a wayward child. Just when things are going right for her, they always go wrong. I like that character change."
