Barry From EastEnders wants Coronation Street role

Barry From EastEnders wants Coronation Street role
Shaun Williamson - aka Barry From EastEnders - admits that he is keen to take a role on Coronation Street or Emmerdale.

Shaun Williamson has admitted that he is eyeing up a role on Coronation Street or Emmerdale, 16 years on from his last appearance on EastEnders.

The 54-year-old played lovable loser Barry Evans on the soap from 1994 to 2004, leaving when his character met his demise by being pushed off a cliff by his wife.

"To be honest, I'd had 10 years on EastEnders and I'd had enough," Williamson told The Sun.

"Obviously I can't go back to EastEnders because I was pushed off a cliff and you saw me croak my last. Well, you never know - never say never.

"I'd love to get on Corrie or Emmerdale. I'm a massive fan of both shows."

Williamson was most recently seen on Channel 5's Celebrity Five Go Barging.
