Michelle Collins has filmed her final scenes for Coronation Street.
The actress, who plays Stella Price, finished work on the ITV soap yesterday (February 19) after a night shoot.
She took to Twitter today to thank fans for their support, while her co-stars Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre), Debbie Rush (Anna Windass) and her on-screen daughter Catherine Tyldesley (Eba Price) tweeted about her departure.
Collins' exit scenes on Corrie will air in April, with show bosses warning that her final storyline will be low-key.
Producer Stuart Blackburn commented last month: "It's a very quiet exit because we've had so many big ones and there are massive ones coming up.
"It's an exit where she's trying to do the right thing by Leanne. There's a space and time where her exit might help Leanne. There's also a sense of Stella looking at Gloria and her lust for life. She's also looking at Eva who's with Jason. She thinks, 'I'm not dead yet - I'm only 50 and there's a whole world out there!'
"Hopefully it's genuine, moving, truthful and leaves the door open. But mostly Stella thinks if she goes, Leanne can get on with whatever she's getting on with - but what that is I'm not going to say!"
Collins, who joined Coronation Street in 2011, had previously been best known for her role as Cindy Beale in EastEnders.
