Last seen reducing gullible Gail to heartbreak, Lewis left the Street in spectacular fashion after cleaning out her bank account and fleeing the country.
But speaking on Daybreak this morning, Nigel Havers has revealed that he wouldn't rule out another appearance on the cobbles for the charming conman.
'Never say never'
He said, speaking about the likelihood of Corrie writers bringing the character back.
'It would be tricky. I would be lynched, wouldn't I? I think I'd have to come back having won the lottery and pay everybody back! I'd love to go back, actually. It's just one of those great shows to be part of. I can't tell you how much fun it is.'
Currently writing a sitcom with Julian Clary, Havers won 'Best Exit' at the British Soap Awards last week. Acknowledging the win, he said:
'The scriptwriters on that show are fantastic. To win an award is amazing, really. They don't often come along! I'm chuffed.'
For the sake of his own safety, we hope Lewis doesn't return - we don't think Audrey and Gail would be fooled a second time.
