Former Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan has said “never say never” about a return to the cobbles.

The actress, who now plays a soldier in the BBC drama Our Girl, played Tina McIntyre in the ITV soap between 2008 and 2014.

She told the Press Association: “I always say that I’d love to go back to Corrie – I was always a massive fan of Coronation Street growing up and I’ll never say never.

“You never know what happens in the future.”

Speaking at the launch of her collection for fashion brand Very, she said her husband Mark Wright was unable to attend but would be watching a video of the catwalk show.

She said: “He’s in LA. I did speak to him actually this morning, he did really wish he could be here but I said I’m gonna film it (on my phone) and I’ll send it over to him.”

Keegan herself is also auditioning in Los Angeles, adding: “It’s going really well. I have an agent out there so I’m constantly in contact with him.

“And the beauty of my profession is that you don’t actually have to be in LA to audition. You self-tape and you send it over.

“So it’s great to meet directors and casting directors face to face but I also self-tape as well.”
