Wendi Peters: From Weatherfield to the West End

Wendi Peters, who played Cilla Battersby-Brown in Coronation Street, was interviewed on ITV's Lorraine show today.

Wendi talked about the new musical she's starring in - State Fair - and working with a 32 piece orchestra. Richard Fleeshman (Craig in Corrie) also stars in the musical too.

And of course, talk turned to Corrie's Cilla. She was asked if she'd ever go back and Wendi said:

"Luckily the door is still open because Fiz and Ches are still there. I'm a firm believer in never say never. You never know what's around the corner. I went back a couple of years ago for a few weeks and had a lovely time. I love doing what I do now..."

After State Fair, Wendi is starring in panto in Sheffield and next year as The Queen of Hearts in new musical Wonderland which is touring the UK until August. She's a very busy lady and if she did ever return to Coronation Street, they'd have to be quick to pin her down and get her booked up!

I remember her, I thought her character Cilla Battersby was great!

I enjoyed Cilla..needs a short comeback I think.

I might be confused, I was thinking of Janet (Janice?) Battersby. Was Cilla her mother?

Janice was Les Battersby's first wife. Mum to Toyah and step mum to Leanne. Cilla was the second wife of Les and mum to Fizz and Chesney. Hope this helps

And curiously, Leanne rarely interacted with Les' new family. Even to this day, she has little to do with her step-siblings. Les adopted Chesney, which I suppose makes him legally Leanne's brother.
