Unlucky in love Julie Carp is to bid farewell to Weatherfield after yet another disastrous love affair.

Actress Katy Cavanagh has decided to leave Coronation Street at the end of her current contract, she will be on screen until late spring.
Katy said: “I have decided it's time to take a break from the cobbles and pursue other projects and opportunities.
"I have loved every minute in the world of Julie Carp and I'm not ruling out a return to the Street in the future. However I am looking forward to a new challenge and a pair of flat shoes."
Stuart Blackburn said: “Julie Carp has become a warm, wonderful and eccentric character able to raise a laugh and a tear in the same scene.
"Everyone at Corrie wishes Katy all the very best and hopefully as far as Julie is concerned, the cobbles haven't seen the last of her.”
