Charlie Lawson discusses potential Coronation Street return

Charlie Lawson discusses potential Coronation Street return
Charlie Lawson says that his Coronation Street character Jim McDonald would most likely only return to the soap to die.

Charlie Lawson has shared his thoughts on a potential return to Coronation Street for his character Jim McDonald.

The 64-year-old has played the part of hot-tempered Jim - dad of Steve (Simon Gregson) and ex-husband of Liz (Beverley Callard) - on and off since 1989, most recently appearing in 2018 as part of a plot to scam Liz.

Lawson has been asked about a possible return to the soap regularly in recent years, but now he thinks that the only possible plotline would be for the iconic character to die.

"The only way I can see him going back is to die," he told The Sun.

"How could Jim fit in now? Television has become dipped in a large bucket of PC woke shite. You'd have to change him completely, cut his nuts off. I couldn't play that.

"It would be a disservice to every Corrie writer past and present and to the character, who became a legend. It's sad. I want the character to stay alive for ever."

Lawson is due to release his auto-biography, That's Life, So It Is, this October.
