Nikki Sanderson: "I miss Candice."

Coronation Street crimper Candice Stowe is a legend. While most Corrie characters leave the cobbles in tears in the back of a taxi or on the Weatherfield Wayfarer with their belongings in a Freshco carrier bag, Candice hit the big time and left to be the hairdresser to Status Quo. What a way to go.

Nikki Sanderson, who played Candice, gives a great interview here about life on the Street as Candice and says: "I think I'll always miss her. She was my first major role and a massive part of my life. She will forever be loved in my heart! I loved it. With Candice it was fantastic. Sometimes she was moody and nasty. Next moment she was crying her eyes out. Then she was doing these really funny, comedic scenes. It was up, down and all over the place."

When asked if she would ever return to the Street as Candice, she said: "That's a major, 'I don't know'. You don't know what will happen in the future. Candice was fantastic but you don't know whether she could ever come back or whether she would fit back in with a storyline because quite a lot of people I was working with aren't there any more."

Nikki Sanderson is currently starring in The Vagina Monologues at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham from on February 4-15. Sally Lindsay, who played Shelley Unwin, is on the bill with Nikki too.
