Call the Midwife actress Jessica Raine is leaving the much-loved series in order to try her hand in Hollywood.
Lloyd and Steve: Street flatmates?
Lloyd Mullaney (Craig Charles) is returning to Coronation Street
Coronation Street's Craig Charles has said he would love his character Lloyd Mullaney to move in with Steve McDonald.
Lloyd has just arrived back in Weatherfield and is set to establish a rival cab company to Steve's, causing a fall-out.
But actor Craig is optimistic they will patch things up, and hopes they can take their bromance to the next level. He told Inside Soap magazine: "I'd love for Lloyd and Steve to play the odd couple for a while!
"There's so much scope for comedy in that, and it would be in the great Corrie tradition too. We could be like the new Stan Ogden and Eddie Yeats - sat there in our boxers, string vests on, watching the telly, eating burgers and talking rubbish. It'd be great fun!"
Steve's villainous ex Tracy Barlow plans to drive them even further apart when she tries to get her claws into Lloyd. But Craig is hoping Lloyd and Steve can have a chance to enjoy single life.
Craig said: "When it comes to women, Lloyd and Steve are always attracted to the wrong ones!
"Let's face it, Steve is probably the most unlucky man ever when it comes to love that lasts - and Lloyd comes a very close second to him. The only difference between them is that Lloyd hasn't started to collect any ex-wives - not yet, anyway!"
