Suranne Jones is set to make a return to the cobbles of Coronation Street, 14 years since leaving the popular British soap.

The much-loved actress of Doctor Foster fame could be heading back to the popular ITV show, which is in it’s 58th year of production. However, her return might only be for a short stint.

Since leaving the soap, she has gained a huge fan base staring in Doctor Foster, solving various crimes in Scott & Bailey, and has also played a nun in BBC’s period drama The Crimson Field set in World War One.

Suranne played Underworld factory worker Karen McDonald, on-screen husband of Steve McDonald.

Suranne is also fresh from her blazing wins at the National Television Awards, winning Best Drama Performance for Doctor Foster. The BBC1 thriller also won Best Drama at the star-studded event.

Speaking to The Sun about a possible return to the street, she said, “If it was for a good cause and we were going to raise a lot of money, I’d ­definitely consider it for Comic Relief.”

Suranne, who is now featured in Save Me, a thriller on Sky Atlantic added, she doesn’t “have time to keep up with Corrie” but remains friends with a number of her former cast mates.

Early last year, it was revealed on the show that Steve had a love child with Leanne Battersby, speaking to The Sun, Surranne said, “I didn’t know Steve had a baby — that is news to me and I am gobsmacked.”

Fans of the show now must wait to see if Surrane ever reprises her role on the cobbles.
