Wendi Peters: From Weatherfield to the West End

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog October 2016, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Wendi Peters, who played Cilla Battersby-Brown in Coronation Street, was interviewed on ITV's Lorraine show today.

Wendi talked about the new musical she's starring in - State Fair - and working with a 32 piece orchestra. Richard Fleeshman (Craig in Corrie) also stars in the musical too.

And of course, talk turned to Corrie's Cilla. She was asked if she'd ever go back and Wendi said:

"Luckily the door is still open because Fiz and Ches are still there. I'm a firm believer in never say never. You never know what's around the corner. I went back a couple of years ago for a few weeks and had a lovely time. I love doing what I do now..."

After State Fair, Wendi is starring in panto in Sheffield and next year as The Queen of Hearts in new musical Wonderland which is touring the UK until August. She's a very busy lady and if she did ever return to Coronation Street, they'd have to be quick to pin her down and get her booked up!
