The actress bowed out from her role as Jo Sugden on the Yorkshire-based serial in 2008 and will return to screens with a one-off guest part in Casualty later this year.
Speaking to the News of the World about her screen comeback, Pallett commented: "I'm really excited as it will be the first TV role that I'll be seen as someone else other than Jo. As long as I have a great character and an interesting script in front of me, I'm happy."
Asked whether she would accept another soap role in the future, she replied: "You never know what's around the corner so if another soap called on me, who knows?"
Pallett is currently taking part in a touring production of the musical Rock Around The Clock, which is to visit 16 cities over the next few months.
She said: "This is my professional stage debut and there's always a certain amount of nerves that come with walking into any first-time role. But I'm loving it and I've fitted straight in."
