Patti's sweet message was a reply to a tweet from Romeo's mother Zeri.

She posted: "I couldn't be prouder of my boy on his final scenes @itvcorrie. He started teething on his first week filming & he's learnt to crawl, walk and talk on set.

"We've had the best time working with such an amazingly supportive (and patient!) cast & crew. My little star #itv #corrie [sic]."

Romeo was an absolute pleasure. What a bright sweet little boy he is!!

Patti responded: "Romeo was an absolute pleasure. What a bright sweet little boy he is!!" with a series of emojis.

Fans know George and on-screen mum Angie left the soap last night after Angie was offered a job with her old boss in South Africa.

Angie left without husband Jude after the pair split due to his compulsive lying.

Jude fled Weatherfield a couple of months ago after his lies caught up with him, but last week Mary and Roy managed to track him down to a B&B in Blackpool.

Jude told Mary he owed the B&B owner money and couldn't leave with her but it turned out it was another lie when Jude was spotted with new girlfriend Kelly - painting himself out to be a surgeon called Dr Ken Barlow.

He told Kelly that Mary was his patient and even put on an Irish accent. 

Jude then ran off with Mary's cash, the rotter!
