The couple pulled out all the stops to make Matilda's day special

Coronation Street star Helen has been enjoying a more low-key life since welcoming her baby daughter last year. Her career has also taken a back seat as she has devoted all her time to Matilda - but she recently admitted she would love to return to the soap.

"I would absolutely love to go back to Coronation Street one day, but it would have to work around Matilda," she told the Sun.

Her wish could come true. Helen played Coronation Street's Rosie Webster from 2000 until 2012 – and it's being reported that the soap's new producer Kate Oates is keen to bring the character back.  An insider revealed: "Kate was going on about how excited she was to join the cast and crew in January and saying she couldn't wait to get her teeth into the show… [she wants a return for] Rosie."
