Coronation Street star Michelle Collins has revealed there could be a chance her soap alter-ego will rekindle her romance with cheating boyfriend Karl Munro.

Stella Price was devastated to discover ladies man Karl (John Michie) had been enjoying a passionate affair behind her back with Sunita Alahan (Shobna Gulati), yet despite her anger, Michelle thinks the Rovers Return landlady could back down and welcome him back with open arms.

“I’m not sure if there could be any future between them, but then again, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton did get back together about 7,000 times so how many times can Stella kick Karl out and take him back?” she told Coronation Street‘s official website.

“Who knows? Watch this space. Karl’s a bit of a sleazeball – he would worm his way out of a paper bag, and he does try to sneak back,” she added.

Michelle said Stella is completely taken aback as she had no idea what was going on.

“Stella’s obviously very angry when she finds out, but really upset, shocked and devastated. It’s pretty much the end of her world really,” Michelle explained.
