Coronation Street’s Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) has had soap viewers shouting at their screens for the past few months, as they willed for Seb Franklin’s evil murderer to get his comeuppance.
And on Friday's instalment of the show, fans finally got what they wished for as they watched Corey get arrested and charged for killing Seb in what fans called "the best thing" they have ever seen on the cobbles.
But while Corey’s dramatic soap exit marks the end of Maximus’ stint on the iconic cobbles for the time being, the young actor has revealed he’d “love” to return to the Street that propelled him to fame in the future.
Speaking about his big exit storyline and whether Corrie fans could ever see him step into his alter-ego's shoes again, Maximus said: “Of course, I’ve loved the last two years, it’s been some of the best times of my life, the experiences and the people I’ve met have just been incredible.”
The young actor continued: “I owe the show a lot so of course I’d come back.”
“I’d love to see it happen further down the line to create that bigger impact if it ever was to happen, but I love the show and it’s been an honour to be part of it.”
In fact, he’s already hoping that he will get to play the soap baddie again, as he doesn’t want to think about saying goodbye to his cast mates, including Tanisha Gorey, who plays Asha Alahan.
Maximus recalled: “I remember mine and Tanisha’s last scene. It wasn’t an emotional scene, but it was for us, [as we were] looking back to two and a half years ago when we did that first scene in Speed Dahl.
“But I expect Tanisha to be hanging around on the Street for years and years to come, as she’s fantastic, so hopefully I’ll get to do a scene with her again one day if they ever decide to bring Corey back.”
Meanwhile, reflecting on his time on one of the biggest shows on the box, Maximus said it had been a fantastic experience from start to finish – not least because was working alongside such talented co-stars.
He explained: “These are actors that I’ve looked at at a young age and never would I have thought I’d be working with them but now I’m mates with them. It’s a very strange position to be in and it did take me a while to get used to.
“So I’d probably say the best thing about the experience is the people I’ve met, both cast and crew.”

As for what he has been doing since he stopped filming on the iconic cobbles, Maximus revealed he has enrolled at a London drama school.
The actor explained: “He may not leave the show for good, but I’ve recently moved down to London to further my training at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama.”
He concluded: “At the same time that’s only two years, then I’ll be back on the market as they say so we’ll just see what happens from there…”
