Faye Brookes has shared a message for her fans after filming her last ever scenes on Coronation Street.
The actress, 31, saw her time on the cobbles draw to a close today (July 19) and uploaded a cryptic post about her future plans on Instagram.
She told fans "The best it yet to come" and many of them rushed to the comments, revealing how much they were going to miss her character and wishing her luck.
One wrote: "Hope you go on to do the most amazing things."
Another said: "Good luck in absolutely all you do, Faye."
The best it yet to come.
A third put: "Gonna miss you so muchhhh."
"Go and grab everything that's waiting for you," commented a fourth, alongside two heart emojis.
Over on Twitter, Faye retweeted some heartfelt messages about her departure from her followers.
One read: "I'm honestly so sad BUT this woman here is so INCREDIBLE! Wish I could put into words how much I love and appreciate you, Faye.
"Thank you for everything... and I mean EVERYTHING. The world isn't ready for your talent. Go get 'em!."
Another read: "So today @Faye_Brookes leaves Corrie. There's been ups and downs, laughs and tears.
"Faye, it's been a pleasure watching you bring Kate Connor to life over the last three years.
"Good luck with whatever you do in the future, I'm sure you'll smash it!"
Faye recently landed a part in pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and is said to be planning to move to London to focus on theatre productions.
She has also reportedly stepped away from her role at Fates Academy, a performing arts school she launched with fiancé Gareth Gates.
A source told The Sun earlier this week: "It's an exciting and really emotional time for Faye as she'll be saying goodbye to the soap in a couple of days.
"She's had such an amazing time there but made the decision in April to leave at the end of her contract. Faye and Gareth think it's the perfect time to put their other plans in motion so are leaving Manchester for London.
"Faye's made no secret about wanting to be a stage star – and now could be her time."
Luckily for Kate Connor fans, the character is set to remain in Corrie for a good six weeks, with her exit set for September.
