I was rather hoping that the recent rumours about Jim McDonald returning to Coronation Street would come true.
Alas, it appears they're false.
A Coronation Street spokesperson has been speaking to OK magazine today, after rumours spread on th'interweb that big Jim was coming back, so he was. Well he's not, so he isn't.
And so Eizabeth remains on her own in the Rovers Return, without a fella to warm her barm cakes. I think it's high time Liz had a new man. What do you think?
Anyway, back to Jim.
The Corrie spokesperson told OK: "He is not returning to the show - he is mentioned in upcoming storylines but does not make an appearance."
