The actress played Sinead Tinker in the ITV soap from 2013 until earlier this year.

Sinead passed away from cancer in October 2019.

Last year Sinead was diagnosed with cervical cancer whilst pregnant with her son Bertie.

Sinead decided not to have treatment until after the birth of her baby, as she didn’t want to harm him.

After the birth of Bertie, Sinead went on to have treatment and earlier this year was told her tumour had shrunk and showed no sign of of spreading.

But a few months later, Sinead discovered a lump on her neck and doctors later confirmed her cancer had spread and she didn’t have much time left.

She passed away as her husband Daniel read Bertie a story.
