CORONATION Street fans have begged for Katherine Kelly to return after sharing string on unearthed Becky McDonald photos.

The actress – who played the feisty barmaid on the ITV soap – shared some behind-the-scene snaps to celebrate 10 years since her exit.


The lovable loudmouth, who was married to Steve McDonald from 2009 to 2011, was a firm favourite during her six years on the soap – being at the centre of numerous emotional and comical storylines.

Taking a trip down memory lane, Katherine posted a photo of her character wearing a red off-the-shoulder ball gown while standing at the doorway of Roy Cropper's café, Roy's Rolls.

In another snap, Katherine could be seen wandering down the cobbled street in another a silver halter-neck number accessorised with silver chains, holding a metallic clutch bag.

She captioned her Instagram snap: "A decade* ago… she flew away @coronationstreet @itv."

Viewers were quick to beg the actress to reprise her role, with one writing: "And now she's flying back? 😀"

Another posted: "11 years already😢and you’ll always be my favourite ever Corrie character nobody will top Becky! So hope she returns one day."

A third shared: "I’m still waiting for Becky to come back 😭."

"Maybe it’s time for her to fly back in?💕," another suggested.

Another fan added: "Come back would be amazing, even if for a short while, see Roy, ruffle Traceys feathers over Steve and see Max be great 😍."

Her ballsy character and kind-hearted nature won her a legion of fans.

Becky's notable storylines included her drunken rampages, two miscarriages and her desire to adopt a child.

On the day of the their wedding Becky was so drunk that they had to postpone the ceremony.

After two miscarriages Becky realised she wasn't able to have children.

Following the divorce she left the soap and moved to Barbados with her new fiancé Danny Stratton.
