Sian Reeves: 'I would love to do Corrie'

By
Former Emmerdale actress Sian Reeves has said that she would love a role in Coronation Street.

Reeves, who played stalker Sally Spode in the Yorkshire soap and is currently starring in Sky Living comedy-drama Mount Pleasant, said a move to Manchester would enable her to stay near her daughter who plans to go to university in the area this autumn.

"I would love to do Corrie. EastEnders would be good as well because it's near home - although soon [my daughter] Bessie's going to be off getting drunk at Leeds or Manchester University so maybe I can go and join her," she said.

"You do work much harder in a soap, because the episode turnover is just horrific, but I'd never say no because something interesting might come up."

Reeves left Emmerdale two years ago, when her character was sectioned after drugging Ashley Thomas (John Middleton), assaulting him and claiming to be pregnant with his baby. Despite enjoying a dramatic exit, the actress has not ruled out a return to the dales.

"I did really well out of Sally Spode," said Reeves. "I had a lovely time up there with Charlotte Bellamy and John Middleton, who play Laurel and Ashley, and I'm still in touch with them.

"It was a gift of a role, and I have to thank [former Emmerdale producer] Mr Gavin Blythe who sadly died in 2010... He was the one who championed me, and I just thought he was so brave to bring a predator into the village."

She added: "Sally's still in a mental home, so I could actually come back."
