Rumours emerged in November last year that the Sarah-Louise Platt actress, along with Nikki Sanderson (Candice Stowe), was on the verge of a "big-money" offer from producer Phil Collinson.
However, she told New magazine: "Apparently, the producers are going to ask me and Nikki Sanderson back. I read it in the paper like everyone else.
"It's not something that's been brought up. Never say never but I'm happy with the way things are right now."
She added: "I couldn't imagine being there for a long time, but maybe that's because I can't imagine myself anywhere for a long time at the moment.
"It's all hypothetical. I genuinely haven't been asked. [But] I'd be flattered. I loved my time there and it would be lovely if they wanted me back."
O'Brien, 28, left Corrie in 2007 after eight years on screen in the Platt family. She has since held a role in Waterloo Road as headteacher's daughter Bex Fisher.
