Bradley Walsh has revealed he plans on returning to Coronation Street as the ruthless businessman Danny Baldwin.

Speaking exclusively to Bradley said: “Would I ever think about returning to Coronation Street? I always get asked that and the answer is yes, of course!”

The actor and comedian left the soap in 2006 to pursue other projects, but said he was always planning to return to Weatherfield eventually.

“The part was left open,” said Bradley. “I should have gone back for a little while whilst I was under contract with ITV, but unfortunately we were busy making other shows and the time didn’t fit.”

Bradley stars in Law & Order UK, the new 13-part crime drama due to air on ITV1 in late February.

Based on the long-running American series, the show follows DS Ronnie Brooks (Walsh) and DS Matt Devlin, played by Battlestar Gallactica’s Jamie Bamber, as they investigate serious crimes.
