Explaining their on-screen bond, Bruce said: “The first day we met, we gelled. It was such a great thing for me to have an actress of Vicky’s standard. We just gelled and became ‘The Battersbys’.

“The pair of us were scared at first. When we read the first scripts, I thought we’re never going to get away with this, we’re going to be hated. But we did it. We worked hard and we did it. Vicky got me through quite a lot of it. I just wanted to be an actor.

“The first two years we were hated…I think I even got told off by my mum. She told me if I did anything against Mr Ken Barlow, that nice man, don’t come home!”

Loose Women's Jane Moore asked Vicky why she was so emotional as she reunited with Bruce, with the 52 year old replying: “I think just seeing his little face. We did have some great laughs. We used to get told off like you wouldn’t believe.

“They’d say ‘cut’ and we’d be laughing our heads off over what we had to say or do – it was really outrageous. We were like, ‘We’re going to ruin this programme!’

“We’d both separately been watching it for years. Then all of a sudden, he’s got to headbutt Curly and I’ve got to shout at everyone. We’re like, ‘No one’s going to like us!’ And to be honest, I don’t think they did!”

Asked if they’d consider a return to the ITV soap, Vicky said: “If they gave us the Rovers, Bruce, what do you think? Would you be up for running that with me?”

Bruce said: “I would. But I’d only go back with you”.

Vicky then jokingly replied: “Yeah, I don’t want you to go back with anyone else!”

One viewer wrote: “@itvcorrie bring back Janice & Les!!!!! This is what 2020 needs! @loosewomen."

Another said: "Seeing Janice and Les back together on @loosewomen is so nice. Their respect and love for one and other is so evident. Come on @itvcorrie #BringBackLesandJaniceBattersby."

A third viewer wrote on Twitter: "Watching @loosewomen reunite Janice and Les Battersby this lunchtime is one of the most moving things I've seen on TV in 2020! I'm almost sharing their tears!!! #Corrie."
