Sally Dynevor almost turned her back on 'Coronation Street' 30 years ago after her storylines appeared to die down slightly

Sally Dynevor almost quit 'Coronation Street' in her 20s.

The 52-year-old actress, who is known for playing busy-body Sally Webster in the ITV soap, toyed with the idea of leaving the Cobbles after her storylines died down following her on-screen marriage to Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) in 1986.

She explained: "Once Sally and Kevin had got married they didn't do much for a few years. I was in my twenties and thought about leaving. Instead I got a part in the play Taste of Honey in Bolton. But then I came back and had the children and the storylines seemed to be better."

However, now her alter-ego is happily married to her new husband Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine), Sally would happily stay on the soap for another 30 years but worries she'll be given the axe every time it comes to renewing her contract.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I think I will stay for the next 30 years. I am having the best time. I feel as if Sally has found herself. I am really happy.

"It is very strange because there is still that insecurity that it is not going to last. This is how we all feel. Are they going to renew my contract or is this it? I still feel like that even now."
