She played Tina McIntyre for six years on the cobbles of Coronation Street, and now Michelle Keegan has dropped a huge hint at a potential return to the soap.

Michelle’s character dramatically left the show in 2014, when she was thrown from a balcony and murdered by Rob Donovan, – played by Marc Baylis – after Tina threatened to out the ex con’s corrupt lifestyle.

But could Tina be making a return from the grave?

‘I always say that I’d love to go back to Corrie – I was always a massive fan of Coronation Street growing up and I’ll never say never. You never know what happens in the future,’ Michelle confessed to Star magazine.

But, with her character being dead and all, we’re not sure exactly how the Corrie writers would bring her back to our screens.

And, the star has openly admitted to attempting to crack Hollywood in a bid to get some work a little closer to her husband Mark Wright – who currently lives and works in LA for his presenting role on Extra TV.

‘I’m auditioning for work out in LA and if something good comes up I will take it and that will be great,’ Michelle revealed. ‘But it has to be something I want to do. I’ve held out for really good parts on British television and I love working here. I think we make great drama in this country.’

In the same interview with You Magazine, Michelle added: ‘I know myself well enough to realise I couldn’t live there for good. Mark absolutely loves LA.  I do love LA. It’s always sunny; it’s so easy to be healthy and happy there. But I’m a northern girl. I miss my family; I miss Manchester; I miss my nine brilliant girlfriends who I’ve known since I was at school. It’s just not me; I’m not an LA woman.’

Well, we would be utterly delighted to have Michelle back on the Corrie cobbles. Fingers crossed!
