However, the actress, who played the soap superbitch between 1989 and 1999, admitted that she would probably only return "for a week".
When asked whether she will ever reappear in Emmerdale, she answered: "I don't know. Obviously the first time I died and then it turned out to be mistaken identity on the slab.
"And then I went back and beat my husband over the head with a billiard cue and then she fled in a helicopter very much alive and well.
"Her name is still on the title deeds of Home Farm, which I find highly amusing, considering there are all these people who keep romping through my house.
"It would be great to go back for a week, create mayhem and then bugger off again!"
The 49-year-old is appearing in Hollyoaks for a guest stint as a prison governor later this month.
The star is also recognised from her time on popular ITV drama Bad Girls, in which she played Karen Betts.
