Coronation Street’s Patti Clare, who plays Mary Taylor, has paid tribute to her on-screen grandson Romeo Cheetham-Karcz.
Little Romeo has played George Appleton since August 2017, but departed the soap last night.
Patti’s sweet message was a reply to a tweet from Romeo’s mother Zeri.
I couldnt be prouder of my boy on his final scenes @itvcorrie. He starting 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 pic.twitter.com/KrLiOJiBbN

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!
