Sherrie Hewson to return to Coronation Street for steamy affair?
Sherrie Hewson has hinted that she may return to 'Coronation Street' so her character can have an affair with Peter Barlow
Sherrie Hewson wants to return to 'Coronation Street' and see her character Maureen Webster have a steamy tryst with recovering alcoholic Peter Barlow.
The 66-year-old actress hasn't graced the cobbles for five years after her alter ago fled to Germany when she found out her husband Bill (Peter Armitage) had been having an affair with salon owner Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls) behind her back.
But it seems an explosive return could be on the cards for Sherrie as she'd love to see Maureen have a fumble with the boozy bad boy because she has a soft spot for Chris Gascoyne, 48, who has played Peter in the long-running soap on/off for 16 years.
Speaking on 'Lorraine' on Thursday (15.12.16), she said: "I loved it. I don't think the character finished. I think she could go back. But I'd like her to go back harder as she was a bit of a whimp. She could go back and be really strong and I don't know, throw Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) out of the garage. Or have an affair with Chris Gascoyne - I know I'm too old for Chris Gascoyne- but I just love him. You never know."
And it seems it's not just a 'Coronation Street' return Sherrie has on her mind, as she'd also like to rejoin the 'Loose Women' panel next year after she left in September.
The blonde star - who is the longest serving panellist on the programme - explained: "I miss the team, I miss the girls so yes I will. I'd love to come back at some point and maybe in the New Year, that would be fabulous. I'd really love to do that."
