Sally Dynevor discusses Coronation Street future

Sally Dynevor discusses Coronation Street future
Sally Dynevor says that she will continue on Coronation Street as long as she enjoys the job.

Coronation Street legend Sally Dynevor has said that she still enjoys appearing on the soap but has vowed to leave as soon as she does not.

The 58-year-old has played the role of Sally Metcalfe/Sally Webster on the cobbles for an incredible 36 years, making her the sixth-longest continuously-serving cast member behind Bill Roache, Barbara Knox, Helen Worth, Sue Nicholls and Michael Le Vell.

Talking to Prima magazine about her appetite to continue, she admitted: "As soon as I don't enjoy my role any more, I'll leave. I'm a firm believer in doing what makes you happy.

"Who knows, I might get killed off - or Steven Spielberg might knock on the door. I don't want to say I'll be there forever, because you don't know what is around the corner."

She added: "I never imagined I'd play Sally for as long as I have. It was the ideal job when my kids were little as I live 20 minutes from the studio, so I was always home for bedtime.

"But three decades on, I still enjoy it as much as when I started. From the cast and camera people to the make-up artists, we've grown up with one another and been there for life's milestones – it's like we're a family."

Dynevor recently took some time out from the show to take part in this year's Dancing On Ice.
