We can confirm that Amy James-Kelly will leave her role as Maddie Heath this summer.
Amy said: "I made the decision to leave because I'm young and adventurous and I want to gain more experience and explore and improve my craft.
"Acting is my passion and I'm excited to see where it takes me."
I’ve had the most amazing 18 months and I'll be sad to leave my Corrie family.
"It's been like a second home," continued Amy, "but like all young people, you eventually fly the nest. I can't thank everyone enough who made this, not only possible, but fantastic."
Stuart Blackburn said: “Amy is a talented young actress and we wish her every success for the future.
"We are currently working on an exit storyline for Maddie which will have repercussions for Sophie and other Weatherfield residents."
