Corrie return for Candice?

Nikki Sanderson, who played Candice Stowe on Coronation Street is currently starring in Hollyoaks as Maxine Minniver.

Interview on ITV's Lorraine this week, Nikki revealed that she'd never rule out a return to Coronation Street. Well, as a jobbing actor, you wouldn't, would you? But I love this sort of gossip, so here goes!

Nikki said in the interview: "At the moment I’m definitely on Hollyoaks for a while, but Coronation Street will always have a special place in my heart. I love it and I love the people and I just loved every second of it."

After producers played some old clips of her character Candice with Sarah-Louise Platt (Tina O'Brien), she said, "Quite a lot of the clips people show I do remember but I don’t remember and it’s so lovely to see them all. In all honesty, with people on the street I get 50 percent of people shouting Candice and 50 percent shouting Maxine so a lot of people still reference me as Candice rather than Maxine."

As soap exists go, being hairdresser to Status Quo wasn't a bad way for Maxine to leave Coronation Street. Might be nice for her to blow back into her mate Sarah's life for a while, especially if Sarah marries Adam Barlow. Say what? Oh yes, read it here!

I don't think Sarah was that good a friend to Candice as she slept with Jason fully aware that Candace had feelings for him.
So far the over hyped returns of Martin,Toyah and Fiona have been disappointments and I don't want another hyped return to justify a storyline for Sarah when the Platts are featured too much already and there are underused characters who are not getting a fair share of storylines.
