Coronation Street star Adam Little has confirmed he has exited as Blake Myers.

Earlier this week, Blake was finally served justice over the stabbing of Alya Nazir alongside his attempted murder of Maria Connor.

Taking to Instagram earlier this week, Adam confirmed that he was leaving the soap, as he thanked the show for the opportunity to take part in such a high-profile storyline, and viewers for their support.

"Thank you to @coronationstreet for the opportunity to be a part of this storyline and play crazy man blake!" he wrote on Instagram.

In the recent shock stabbing scenes, Blake tried to disrupt Maria's meeting about the refugee drop-in centre, with Max learning of his plan after tuning into a livestream.

While Max arrived at Speed Daal in time to issue a warning, he was stopped by Gary Windass.

Blake then charged at Maria, with Alya bravely stepping in the way to try and protect her, leading to her being stabbed in the stomach.

Thankfully, Alya has since been on the mend in hospital.

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
