Coronation Street star Philip Lowrie has hinted at a possible relationship between his character Dennis Tanner and Rita Sullivan.

Lowrie recently returned to Corrie after 43 years, and has previously described how good it is to be back on the show.

Speaking to the TV Times about a possible romance between Dennis and Rita, Lowrie said: "That's been hinted at.

"I asked Barbara Knox, who plays Rita, how many husbands has she had? She said two, so there might be a third, you never know!"

The 74-year-old said that he didn't have to audition for his return to Weatherfield, and was instead offered a six-month contract by producer Phil Collinson.

Lowrie explained: "I said to myself years ago that I was fed up going to auditions and getting rejected, but if somebody asked me to do something I'd do it. And I can't see anything not to like about this, especially the storyline. It gives the character somewhere to develop." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
