Heras joined the soap in July 2012, replacing Ben Thompson as Michelle Connor's son.

Ryan will reportedly realise that there is no reason to stay in Weatherfield after being dumped by girlfriend Katy Armstrong. He then receives a job offer as a DJ in Ibiza and decides to leave the Street behind.

Heras said of Kym Marsh, who plays his on-screen mum: "[She] is one of my best friends on the show. She took me under her wing and we've become best friends.

"She's ace, we talk all the time. And with Ryan being Michelle's son there's a chance he could come back."

Heras also revealed that he has been receiving abuse from soap fans after his character broke up Chesney and Katy's relationship, before treating her poorly.

He said: "I get a lot of people shouting at me asking why I'm so mean to Chesney.

"Guys congratulate me on having a gorgeous girlfriend but other people moan and say I should leave her alone."

He added: "I was on a golf course recently and the lady behind the bar refused to serve me.

"She said, 'You're an arsehole. I can't serve you'. She said what I'd done to Chesney and Katy was awful.

"But as an actor that's the kind of reaction you want and I've been lucky to have so many different storylines."

Heras recently revealed that he wants his character to redeem himself in the soap. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
