Corrie's Katie McGlynn shares emotional post saying goodbye to Sinead
Actress Katie McGlynn has shared an emotional post as she leaves Coronation Street after seven years.
Katie's final scenes as Sinead Tinker/ Osbourne were aired in this evening's episode as the character passed away after a battle with cervical cancer.
Katie took to Instagram after the show ended, saying it had been a "pleasure, privilege and honour" to work on the soap.
"Sinead Osbourne, for nearly 7 years since you first walked the cobbles @coronationstreet, you have been such a massive part of my life," she wrote.
"It’s been a rollercoaster of a ride, highs, lows, a crash, broken back, proposals, weddings, pregnancy, abortion ? and now devastatingly cancer... For Sinead to be leaving this way means EVERYTHING to me! Raising so much awareness for cervical cancer, cancer in young people and cancer in/around pregnancy...
"It’s been a pleasure, privilege and honour to work alongside such talented people; producers, writers, directors, cast, crew...absolutely every single person at Coronation Street, I will miss you so much!"

The ambience in these #Corrie episodes has been incredible. Every tiny detail has been crafted to the utter heartbreak of Sinead’s storyline ?

Yes this is "just" a soap but this storyline will be all too real for a lot of people. Although it's been a hard watch it's been brilliantly handled, written & acted #Corrie
