Julie Goodyear rules out 'Coronation Street' comeback

By
Julie Goodyear has boldly ruled out a return to her Coronation Street role as Bet Lynch.

Goodyear, who is currently in the Celebrity Big Brother house, has long been linked with a comeback.

Speaking to the latest OK! magazine, the actress stated: "Would I go back? No."

The 70-year-old explained that the soap, which films nearly two hours of material every week, would be too physically gruelling.

"The schedule now is way above and beyond," Goodyear hypothesised. "When I began it was two episodes a week. It's become more and more."

Goodyear further claimed that, while she respects the current cast's level of commitment, her performance would suffer with such high-turnaround scenes.

"I've tremendous admiration for them being able to do it, but I'm a perfectionist in my work," she added. "I need rehearsals, tech-runs, make-up and costume."

The Weatherfield legend, who was last seen on the cobbles in 2002, was previously rumoured to be making a guest appearance for the funeral of Betty Williams last year.

The star briefly reprised her Bet Lynch role in March for blighted Corrie musical Street of Dreams. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
