Ex-Corrie star Denise Welch hints Natalie could return for revenge on Sally

Former Coronation Street star Denise Welch has hinted her character Natalie Horrocks could return to the cobbles to get her revenge of Sally Dynevor’s Sally Metcalfe.

The duo were reunited on today’s Loose Women as they looked back at their time on the small screen together.

And of course, they reminded viewers of that iconic slap.

‘I think Denise is the only character I have ever slapped that hard,’ Sally laughed when video calling into the show.

Explaining what happened on set that day, Denise added: ‘Cause she is so lovely Sally, she tried it six times and kept going, “I just can’t, I just can’t, I just can’t.”‘

But, she sure founds some gusto in her somewhere and really went for it when slapping her buddy across the face.

‘I really had to spend about 15 minutes apologising because I felt so bad,’ the 57-year-old giggled.

‘But it worked so well we were such good friends, we were able to work it out between us.’

She then teased that Natalie could return in order to get her own back – and quite honestly, Corrie needs to make it happen.

‘I really want your character to come back, Natalie come back,’ Sally demanded. ‘She should get her revenge on Sally next time!’

Hell yes.

Sally first appeared on the show in 1986, and has since had some incredible storylines as well as facing her own battles away from the screen – including the time she had breast cancer in 2009.

At the same time, bosses had planned for her character to also be diagnosed with the disease, seeing them fight it out together.

Reflecting on this time period, the actress said: ‘The hardest thing to me is that life was imitating art and there was an afternoon I thought I would go and check if everything was okay and then I had a little feel and there was something really tiny.’

She was sent to the hospital after seeing the onsite nurse, which is where she was told the devastating news.

‘It was the biggest shock to me ever because I would never have checked if it wasn’t for what I was doing on the street,’ she confessed before revealing that it doesn’t even come into her mind any more.

‘I never think about it, it never really enters my head,’ she stated. ‘Occasionally I’ll worry if I have an ache or a pain, it’s a chapter of my life, a blip in mine, but I’m very lucky and I’m back to how I was before, it doesn’t define me and I’m back to how I was before.’
