Coronation Street's 'Kylie Platt' is to quit soap
Coronation Street star Paula Lane is to leave the show after six years playing troubled Kylie Platt.
The actress, who is pregnant with her second child, has revealed she will quit the soap when she takes maternity leave in June.
ITV said writers are working on her "dramatic exit", which will focus on the climax of a storyline which saw Kylie murder villainous ex-boyfriend Callum Logan during a live episode last September.
Lane (29) said: "This has not been an easy decision for me to make. I have enjoyed every moment of my time on Coronation Street and learnt so much in the process.
"I have an amazing on-screen family who have become friends for life, so this decision was not taken lightly."
