Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Metcalfe on Coronation Street has said she'd love to see Sally's sister Gina Seddon back on the show.
In an interview where Sally talks about new producer Kate Oates coming in to take over the show. She says: “It’s
a kind of mixture of hope, fear and excitement.Everyone speaks very highly of Kate and she’s a new broom for us. It’s a
new era for the Street, but there’s always an element of uncertainty
with a new producer because you don’t know what they’re going to do and
which way they’re going to go.”
When asked if she could choose something to happen to her character, Sally says: “I’d
love it if Gina, Sally’s sister, came back to Weatherfield. She was on
the Street once years ago. Gina’s the only extended family Sally has
left as both her parents passed away some years ago, I think. There’s
been no talk of it so far as I’m aware, but it would be wonderful if
they cast a Gina and she turned up in Corrie after all these years. Can
you help put it out there?”

Interestingly, it's not the first time that Sally has said in interviews that she'd love Gina to return. Back in 2015 she said the same thing here.
