Sally Dynevor as Sally Metcalfe

Sally Dynevor is considering quitting 'Coronation Street'.

The 52-year-old actress - who is known for playing busy body Sally Metcalfe in the ITV soap - has admitted she's starting to get "itchy feet" following 30 successful years on the show.

She explained: "After 30 years at 'Coronation Street' I do get itchy feet, but who knows what would happen if I left? I don't want to risk leaving ­something that I'm enjoying."

The blonde beauty's eagerness to try something different comes after she watched her former co-star Julie Hesmondhalgh, who played Hayley Cropper, in theatre.

She said: "I went to see Julie Hesmondhalgh in a new play ­recently. It was ­absolutely brilliant and it did make me think, 'Oh, should I do this? Should I leave?' But then another part of me thought, 'What if I left and it didn't work out?' And I love it here. At the moment I think I'm enjoying it more than I've ever."

But Sally fears she's getting "too old" for dramatic storylines and would rather stick to comedy.

She told the Sunday People newspaper: "I liked the dramatic ­storylines in the past but I think I'm getting a bit too old for it now - all that crying and shouting is too much like hard work. And I don't want any more of the romantic stuff - it's too embarrassing. Still, the comedy is so much fun to film. I think it rubs off when you've been laughing at work."

And, although the ball is in her court at the moment, Sally has admitted she constantly worries she's going to be axed.

She said recently: "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."
