It was said by Hayley's son Christian so we're talking a few years back now. She gave him a photo album of herself as a young boy, although at the time of course Christian didn't realise she was actually his dad. Upon receiving the album Christian said,
"It's better than a Smiths twelve inch white label"
which appealed to me as a music fan, as a Smiths fan, as a Hayley fan! I used it as a screen name for a while, even.
I would absolutely love to see Christian back on screen trying to forge some kind of relationship with Hayley. It wouldn't be easy by any stretch, but I believe the Corrie writers and actors could pull it off with sensitivity and dignity.
