Sad news for Corrie fans: a long-serving favourite has quit the cast.
Debbie Rush – who has played Anna Windass for the past nine years – has announced her departure.
“I’ve had an amazing nine years and the decision to leave was not made lightly,” she has explained. “I love playing Anna and will miss working with the fantastic crew.
During her time on the cobbles, Anna has endured adoptive daughter Faye giving birth underage, been pressured into sleeping with Phelan for money, and been horrifically burnt in a car crash caused by David.
We will still see the character on our TV screens until 2018 – some consolation, then!
