Coronation Street actress Hayley Tamaddon to bow out in dramatic live episode

Coronation Street actress Hayley Tamadden will leave the soap in September after two years playing Andrea Beckett.
The 38-year-old actress joined the soap in 2013 when she was introduced as Steve's (Simon Gregson) friend from night school.
Hayley was due to stay just three months but her contract was extended.
“I am excited about my exit storyline and the fact that it is part of the live episode," she said.
"Corrie has given me a great platform to hopefully go on to work on other dramas but I’d never rule out a return to Weatherfield as I love it so much."
So it looks like Andrea won't be killed off. She will, however, exit in a dramatic storyline which will air as part of a live episode in September in celebration of the soap's 60th birthday celebrations.
Taking to Twitter following the announcement, she wrote, "Sat here reading all your lovely tweets with tears in my eyes. Thank you for your kind words guys. Xxx"
