Wilson: 'I deserved better from Corrie'
Sean Wilson has claimed that Coronation Street producers would need to be "very persuasive" if they wanted him to return to the soap.

In an interview with This Is Nottingham, the actor hinted that he has still not forgiven bosses over the storyline dispute which led to him bowing out as Martin Platt in 2005.

Reflecting on his exit, Wilson explained: "The reason I left was because they wanted my character to have an affair with a 14-year-old schoolgirl. I said I didn't like the idea of that, they said I was doing it, so I said, 'Okay - I'll get my coat'.

"I didn't think they gave me as much respect as my 21 years on the show deserved. They would have to be very persuasive if they wanted me back."

Meanwhile, discussing Martin's legacy, he commented: "I tried to create a rounded character and I had a lot of good storylines as a vehicle for that. People remember him fondly."

Wilson has launched a new career as a cheesemaker in recent months, but has not ruled out an acting comeback for the future. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
