She went on: "If you watched Friday’s eps you will see there was no big leaving scene so you never know for the future but what I do know is this… I owe so much to Corrie and I absolutely love it there - the people - the vibe - the street."

"Life happens in chapters - and I am looking forward to the next part," she added.

The actor has also starred in Hollyoaks and comedy drama Mount Pleasant.

She has previously shared that she was so keen to return to Corrie after her first experience on the soap that she included it on a vision board that she made for herself.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News in March, she explained: "On the day of getting the call about Corrie, I’d just done a vision board of the 10 things that I want in my life in general, and Corrie went back on there, and I pinned it up and I wrote the reason."
