And now the tabloids are saying that Kate Oates plans to bring back some Coronation Street legends - including Bet and Curly.
Speaking to the Daily Star, she said: "I think Corrie has a strong cast but also a strong history and it's nice to mix and match. I'm looking forward to seeing what the writers are interested in doing and matching their ideas with mine."
Kevin Kennedy who played Curly Watts on Corrie, took to twitter to say this about his rumoured return:
As for today's newspaper report that I'm going back to Coro , one thing is certain, I would be the last to know haha— Kevin Kennedy (@mrkevkennedy) March 27, 2016
