Angela told the Daily Star: “I do love the show and I loved my character, and I wish I could have done more.

“I’d never say never to going back to Corrie ever because there’s something in my head that goes, ‘You’re going to end up back in Corrie at some point'”.

She added: “It’s a big question to go back full-time because it’s a whole lifestyle change.”

Angela Griffin loved returning to Coronation Street

Actress Angela previously admitted she loved making a comeback to the soap – albeit briefly.

Angela enjoyed returning to the show to film her scenes. And she admits she felt “really emotional” going back because Corrie was the programme that launched her acting career.

The Wild Bill star – who originally portrayed Fiona from 1992 to 1998 – shared: “It was really lovely. I literally went for one day and shot it all, it was really emotional.

“It was a long time ago when I started on that show. I was my daughter’s age so to go back was amazing.

“I was quite sad it was for such a short period of time. But I couldn’t [do more] because I am filming for Netflix, so there is no way I could. It’s a show called White Lines and it’s set in Ibiza.”
