Confirmation: Ryan Thomas Departure

ITV has confirmed that Ryan Thomas is to leave Coronation Street next year. Having been on the soap for 15 years, playing builder Jason Grimshaw, Ryan has decided to pursue new challenges.

Ryan has been an important part of Coronation Street for 15 years. We wish him every success when he moves on next year and we appreciate his desire to try new things. In the coming months he'll be at the heart of a massive story, affecting not just his family but the Websters and the Windasses too which will take us well into 2016.

– Producer Stuart Blackburn

"It has been a great privilege to be in Coronation Street for the past 15 years," said Ryan.

"The cast and crew are amongst the best in the business and to have had the chance to be a part of it for so long has been an amazing experience.

"The decision to leave was an extremely difficult one but I felt that now was the right time to spread my wings and try other roles.

"I'm just excited now to see what exit storyline the writers give Jason."
