Kerry Katona wants a role in ‘Coronation Street’.
The 39-year-old singer has confessed she would love to star on the ITV soap, as she responded rumours that ‘Corrie’ legend Bet Lynch (Julie Goodyear) could be returning.
Writing in her column for new! magazine, she said: "So ‘Corrie’ wants to bring back Bet Lynch, eh? I remember watching Julie Goodyear, who plays her, in ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ and I wasn’t that impressed with her personality, but there’s no denying Bet was a fantastic character. However, I just can’t see her being able to recapture the magic of the glory days. I wonder if she’s now too dated? We’ve moved forward so much I don’t know if there’s room for Bet in the show. I could be the new Rovers barmaid, instead! I’ll be the bipolar Bet Lynch! And leopard print is definitely my pattern."
It comes after it was revealed bosses want to bring Bet back to the cobbles.
Series producer Iain MacLeod shared: "Bet is an icon. The idea of bringing her back is talked about occasionally. As any ‘Corrie’ viewer would say, she is up there in the pantheon of ‘Corrie’ greats. So it’s always tempting to bring her back."
However, even if Julie doesn’t appear on the soap again, Iain is confident he’s still got a great cast that can take ‘Coronation Street’ forwards.
He reflected: "I’m very happy with the cast that we’ve got. We have a very strong hand of cards to play, so I’m enjoying making the best of it. We are lucky that a lot of the iconic characters are still in the show. Ken, Rita … and then Roy Cropper entered the echelons of iconic characters a long time ago. People are always asking me about what will be next for those characters. We have got more than enough talent on the show at the moment."
