When asked whether she hopes Taylor will return to Weatherfield, Danson said: "Always! We're such great friends and always have been.

"As an actor, I'm sure she's keen to explore other things. But if the opportunity came up and it was the right time, I'd be really hopeful that she would say yes.

"Hopefully one day - I'd just like Leanne to have somebody around who would be really on her side 100% of the time! From my point of view, it would be fantastic."

Georgia Taylor left her Casualty role of Ruth Winters last year and is currently trying to find work.

The 32-year-old has previously declared her interest in "reinventing" Toyah, who made her last Weatherfield appearance in 2003.
