Coronation Street actress Hayley Tamaddon - Weatherfield's Andrea Beckett - is leaving the soap.

Coronation Street actress Hayley Tamaddon - Weatherfield's Andrea Beckett - is leaving the soap.

She will make her exit in a "dramatic plot" in the Street's live episode after two years on the show.

Tamaddon's last scenes will air in September as part of ITV's 60th anniversary celebrations, and soap bosses said the door will be left open for a possible return.

The former Emmerdale actress (38, right) joined the show in late 2013 as a night school friend of Steve McDonald.

"I came into Corrie for three months and have stayed for two years. I will be so sad to leave, I have had the best two years of my life here," she said.
