Why Becky won't be returning for Kylie's funeral

Katherine Kelly, who played Becky McDonald on Coronation Street, has ruled out a return for Kylie's funeral.

On twitter, Katherine wrote that she is filming in Cardiff and this means Becky won't be at Kylie's funeral:

The actors (and their agents) go to great lengths to distance themselves from their former character so as to avoid typecasting. I guess that's why Katherine Kelly did an ITV video tribute to Hayley a couple of years back- ostensibly as Becky, but carefully dressed in her Mr Selfridge costume.

I didn't have high hopes for that - it would have been great, but I didn't think Kelly's schedule would allow.

As in the case with Hayley's funeral,I'm a little disappointed that Becky won't be returning for Kylie's funeral particurely since Kylie was her only family.
It would've been nice to see Becky support David and his children,her nephew and niece and catch up with Roy as well.
C'est la vie.

There is no reason another actress could not take on the role for the brief return. Tracy and Nick are not the original actors either. We suspend disbelief very frequently on this show, so why for this one scene?

this was my only objection for killing off Kylie. It's the second major death that Becky doesn't come for a funeral... Hayley's I can sort of understand, but this... it's a major plot hole. there is no way Becky wouldn't have come back.

So sad about Kylie's character being killed off.... That sucks big time!.... One of the things I've always loved about Corrie is how it is a lot more realistic for a soap than the American soaps. I could understand (just as someone else on here has said) Becky not making the appearance for Haley's funeral, but not being there for her own sister's funeral doesn't make sense for me..... I know Katherine Kelly has a real heavy schedule and all that, but I wonder if she would make the apearance if she had more time.....Also makes me wonder if they are going to mention Becky on the episode, and if they do what excuse they are going give as to why she's not going to show....At least the show is getting good again, was kind of going flat for a while.

Well, we did have the scene last night of Becky asking Roy to get flowers on her behalf, so I assume there will be some reference to the funeral too, as David will be planning it next week. I can't think of any valid reason for Becky not coming, unless she is taken ill or has an accident at the last minute (or her plane crashes 😨).

I get it and am thrilled for KK that she is busy and can't make it back for a funeral. But I also think Becky would be there no matter what, even if she had a different face. It's been long enough, we viewers could manage.

I'm glad that KK is working. I just hope that the writers come up with a plausible reason for Becky to miss her sister's funeral.
