Joanna Lumley to return to Coronation Street?

Kym Marsh, who plays Michelle Connor in Coronation Street, writes a weekly column for OK magazine. And in this week's column, she suggests bringing back Joanna Lumley to reprise her role as Ken's love interest Elaine Perkins in the show.

Now, I think this is a superb idea. And Kym writes in her OK magazine column: "Apparently Joanna Lumley would love a return to the cobbles. She played Ken Barlow’s girlfriend Elaine back in 1973. She’s an iconic actress, so it would be wonderful to have her back."

And it's something that Joanna Lovely Lumley herself has talked about not too long ago, when she was interviewed on BBC's The One Show. She talked then about how leaving Corrie was the saddest thing she's ever had to do.  You can read more on that here.

Could the time be right for her to return? Ooh, yes please make it so!

Yes! Bring Joanna back immediately!

Didn't they ask Joanna Lumley back before and she turned them down - hence Stephanie Beacham as Martha?

Oh yes that's would be fantastic to see Joanna on the cobbles and flirty with Ken.

Absolutely. Love her! An eccentric 'growing old disgracefully' Elaine? There'd be no character like her, yet she has those deep roots in the show.

That would be fun, she's a favorite actress of mine and they could do so much with a storyline like that!
