Marc Baylis teases Corrie return for Rob Donovan

There's a fab interview with Marc Baylis, who played Coronation Street's Rob Donovan, in this week's Inside Soap magazine.

Marc talks about being asked to return to Corrie as Rob Donovan earlier this year when his character escaped from jail where he's banged up for the murder of Tina McIntyre.

He says: "I was so glad of the chance to bring back Rob. I wasn't sure whether it had always been on the cards or not, because you never know what might happen. But me and Corrie's producer Kate Oates had a long chat and once sh'd explained her plans for Rob, going back to the show was a no-brainer. It's added even more to his history and to his relationship with Tracey. And since he gave himself up, it's hopefully given him a bit of redemption too."

Asked if he'd like to return to Corrie one day, he says: "Of course. I love playing Rob, he's a great character. I loved the relationship he had with people on the Street, but he'd have a lot of rebuilding to do, especially with Carla. But I'd absolutely be up for playing Rob again, when the time is right for everyone!"

I would also love Rob to come back permanently. I don't care how they do it, just as long as he gets to stay this time. Watched him on the celebrity version of Tipping Point at the weekend, loved seeing Marc again.

With Carla coming back, it can fit. Out on a technicality maybe? It's not like it hasn't been done before!

He's a fab character and played so well, please Kate make it happen!

If Rob camr out on technicality then it would completely inundate the Tracy and Carla feud from which the story was based upon. Either way. I would love Marc to come back
