Suranne Jones wouldn’t be open to a Corrie comeback

Suranne Jones has ruled out a return to Coronation Street.

The actress made a big impact as feisty Karen McDonald between 2000-2004, but prefers playing a variety of roles.

“I wouldn’t go back to Corrie. I think you should move on. I’m even reluctant to say ‘never say never’ because I definitely don’t want to,” Jones told Lancaster and Morecambe Citizen

Jones’ comments will come as a disappointment to fans of the Granada-produced serial with whom Karen proved popular.

“I love Coronation Street and the people but I don’t miss it. I like the variety I can do now. I am a bit greedy like that.”

Karen is best remembered for her rocky relationship with gormless Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) and the feud she had with Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford). Next year will see Coronation Street celebrate its 50th anniversary.
