Corrie's Beverley Callard, 63, is currently recovering at home after being left unable to walk after her hip operation went wrong back in March. The Liz McDonald actress has now revealed when she will be returning to Coronation Street and what she would like her "ideal" exit from the soap to be.
Beverley was in agony for weeks before having corrective surgery in July.
While the ITV favourite has a long road of recovery ahead of her, she has spoken out about her hopes for her Corrie character in the future.
It comes after Beverley was asked about returning to the soap and what she would like Liz McDonald's send-off to be, after quitting the long-running drama in November.
"I can't go back until next year, realistically," she began.

"But I would love it if Liz and Jim got back together and disappeared off into the sunset."
On-screen husband Jim McDonald is portrayed by Charles Lawson, who first joined the soap in 1989.
Jim and Liz separated in 1993 after the couple began to manage the pub.
The characters were united in grief for their daughter Katie, who died a day after her premature birth in 1992.
They then re-married in 2000 ahead of Jim's sentencing for the manslaughter of drug dealer Jez Quigley, who had died following a revenge attack from Jim for having his son Steve McDonald beaten up.
