On Friday, Brooke bid farewell to her Coronation Street co-stars as she began her maternity leave from the ITV soap.

LOVE IS LOVE

The star has played Sophie Webster in Corrie since 2004, when she was just 11, and has filmed her final scene - for now.

In an emotional Instagram video, Brooke could be seen in character standing in Dev Alahan's store.

A member of the crew then announced she had just filmed her final scene before her co-stars began rushing up to hug her.

Posting the video online, Brooke said: "I can't believe 15 years ago I came onto the Street to play 'Sophie Webster' and today I left to play my biggest role yet 'Mummy'.

"My amazing family at Coronation Street, I am going to miss you all so much."

Earlier this year, Brooke announced she was expecting a baby with her boyfriend, Sheffield United player Kean Bryan.

The star recently enjoyed her baby shower alongside all her Corrie co-stars, friends and family.
