Hello and welcome to another edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition
so get scribbling and make us all laugh.
Bad news Corrie fans. A real shocker. Actress Tupele Dorgu, who plays Kelly Crabtree, has decided to leave Coronation Street early next year.
She will be departing when her current contract ends, after a stint of five years in the show.
ITV’s Coronation Street website reports that departure, the factory worker will find herself the object of Gail’s returning prodigal son Nick Tilsley (who’ll be played by Footballers’ Wives star Ben Price).
Speaking of her decision to leave the show, Tupele Dorgu said: "I feel privileged to have been part of such an iconic show for five years and I am grateful to everyone at Coronation Street for the opportunities I have been given. I have however decided to leave the show and am very excited about seeking new challenges and opportunities within the industry.”
Well I’m really depressed by this news. I was hoping that the writers would pair Kelly with Lloyd once more and make them into a modern day Jack and Vera. Guess that won’t happen now. However, it’s always never say never in soaps. So many leave but eventually, they return again. Just look at Emma Atkins in Emmerdale.
But how do you feel about the loss of Corrie’s Kelly Crabtree? Are you glad to see her go or do you think it’s about time? Let us know by leaving a comment.
