Sean Wilson is open to making a ‘Coronation Street’ comeback.
The 57-year-old actor – who starred on the ITV soap between 1985 and 2005 – has revealed that he’d still love to reprise the role of Martin Platt.
He shared: “I made it clear that I could be turned but now it’s 2023 and nothing has happened.
“The writers decided to send me to New Zealand so maybe they’re trying to tell me something.”
Since leaving the show, Sean has explored his own passion for cheese-making, which prompted him to set up the Saddleworth Cheese Company in 2009.
The company has become a huge success, and the former actor admits that ‘Coronation Street’ played a key role in his new career.
He told the Manchester Evening News newspaper: “When I worked on ‘Corrie’ I had my own pad and I was lucky enough to be friends with chefs through ‘Coronation Street’ and I learned about cheeses, which started in France.”
Sean is now set to release a cheese-themed cookbook called ‘Cheddar Gorged’.
And the former soap star feels very proud of what he’s managed to achieve since leaving ‘Coronation Street’.
He said: “We’re very keen to pigeonhole people but we’ve got a big brain between our ears and lots of interests.
“My reason for writing the book is that we all have a piece of cheddar in our fridge and yet don’t know anything about it, and it’s the nation’s favourite cheese and becoming the world’s favourite cheese.”
Despite this, Sean admits that he remains open to the idea of returning to ‘Coronation Street’.
Asked about the possibility of returning to the cobbles one day, he replied: “I am busy writing books, but of course I would give it some thought.”
