Corrie star Ryan Thomas wants Katherine Kelly back on the Street
Corrie star Ryan Thomas – who plays builder Jason Grimshaw – has revealed that he misses former co-star Katherine Kelly, and he added that he’d love to see her back on the soap one day to reprise the role of Becky McDonald.
As fans will recall, Katherine left the show last year in order to pursue other roles, and has since received critical acclaim for her role in stage play, She Stoops To Conquer.
Speaking to the PA, Ryan – whose brother Adam plays the role of Adam Barton in Emmerdale – said, “I’d like to see Becky’s return some time, I miss that character very much and I miss Katherine the person very much.
“I think if she ever came back as a guest appearance it would make my day.”
Ryan also discussed his relationship with co-star Sue Cleaver, who plays Jason’s mum, Eileen…
Of how he gets on with Sue off-screen, Ryan said, “We’re quite protective over each other and we look after each other. She brought me up in a way.
“It’s been great to have such a great mum on and off screen.”
And finally, of his brother Adam’s role in Emmerdale, Ryan said, “I’m very proud of him. It’s great that me and Adam are both working in soaps.
“To see him doing it as well is great, There’s never any rivalry between any of the soaps, we’re all doing the same job…
“We’re all very close and get on quite well, I’ve got a lot of friends from different soaps.”
