After demonstrating how she had reformed, Hayley and husband Roy Cropper (David Neilson) chose to take Becky in.
She ended up living with the couple for several years at the flat above Roy’s Rolls and became extremely loyal to the pair.
In a recent interview, Katherine opened up about her time on the show, noting her scenes with David and Julie as a highlight.
“I was there at a really exciting time and I was really fortunate to work with some of the best actors on TV, like David Neilson and Julie Hesmondhalgh. I mean, they’re second to none,” she told Radio Times.
“People say soap is a conveyor belt, which is true, but I found it the most liberating job I’ve ever done in terms of creativity,” Katherine added.
As she spoke so highly about her time on the ITV soap, could there be a chance she’d return to the long-running show?
