Writers will now come up with an "enthralling exit" for the character who has been a regular in the ITV soap for nine years, according to a Coronation Street spokesman.

The mini-bus crash and her brother Rob's handover to the police after Tina McIntyre's murder are among the big stories in which King has recently appeared.

A spokesman for the show said: "Alison King has indicated to producers that she would like to take a sabbatical from the show for creative reasons at some point in 2016.

"Ali's desire to take a break from the show gives the writers the opportunity to come up with a enthralling exit for the character."
