The news comes a few months after Kym announced she would be leaving Coronation Street.

Back in February, she said that she was going to be taking a break from Coronation Street - but promised viewers "it isn't the last you've heard of Michelle Connor."

The actress first appeared on Corrie in a cameo role, playing Michelle Connor, back in 2006. Her popularity with viewers landed her a permanent role on the soap.

Kym confirmed the news in a statement, which said:

"When I was lucky enough to be offered four episodes on Coronation Street, I could never in my wildest dreams have thought I’d be here thirteen years later

"It’s been an incredibly difficult decision but it feels like the right time for me to take a break from the show and explore some other roles.

"But this isn’t the last you’ve heard of Michelle Connor, she’ll be back! I can’t wait to see what the writers have in store for the future."
