Which Coronation Street legends would you like to return?

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

There was much hoo-hah over the recent Easter weekend in the tabloids over incoming Coronation Street producer Kate Oates.  We've already blogged about her plans for cast and storylines here.

And now the tabloids are saying that Kate Oates plans to bring back some Coronation Street legends - including Bet and Curly.

Speaking to the Daily Star, she said: "I think Corrie has a strong cast but also a strong history and it's nice to mix and match. I'm looking forward to seeing what the writers are interested in doing and matching their ideas with mine."

Kevin Kennedy who played Curly Watts on Corrie, took to twitter to say this about his rumoured return:
Now then, as regular readers will know, I'm a huge fan of Emily's nephew Geoffrey, aka Spider Nugent. He'd definitely be on my list of top five characters I'd love to see return, along with Toyah Battersby too.

Who would you like to see again back on Coronation Street?

When they brought Bet back last time it was a miserable failure. Quite frankly there is no one I would wish to see come back. Sadly a lot of the characters who have left just wouldn't fit in on the street any longer. One exception could be Andy MacDonald as his Mom and brother run the pub. Perhaps he could come back with a wife and children.

And bring back Jim MacDonald for good, not just as a guest role.
