Coronation Street's Sally Dynervor wanted Sally and Kevin back together

'Coronation Street' actress Sally Dynevor wanted Sally and Kevin Webster "to get back together".

The 52-year-old actress has revealed her character and on-screen ex-husband - played by Michael Le Vell - are over for good after 29 years despite previous reports claiming they are set to rekindle their romance.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Sally said: "I was really pleased when they told me. I loved Sally's relationship with Kevin, it was a fantastic part of my life and we had a great time, but it's nice now that we are committing to Tim's character.

"Of course part of me did want Sally and Kevin to get back together, because I enjoy working with Michael Le Vell so much.

"But once they'd introduced Tim, I suddenly thought there was a different dimension to Sally. And if they had put Sally and Kevin back together, what would we have done? I don't really know where we could have gone with it."

Meanwhile, former 'Corrie' writer Kay Mellor has blasted the show for the "false" emotion seen in Deirdre Barlow's funeral, following the death of the actress Anne Kirkbride.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, she said: "I watched [the funeral scenes] and I have not watched 'Coronation Street' for years. When I used to watch 'Coronation Street' it was fantastic, they were just brilliant and I don't think there is the craft there that there used to be. I did feel as if it was a missed opportunity.

"I did feel they were trying to crank up emotion and it was a false emotion. I should have been in a heap really, there should have been something more and I just felt as if it was engineered. It felt false somehow."
