Georgia May Foote has been axed from Coronation Street, it has been confirmed.
Just days after the Sun claimed she was one of 14 stars to be given a new contract, the soap’s top boss confirmed that she has been cut from the cast.
But Stuart Blackburn reassured Georgia that he wouldn’t kill off her Weatherfield character, Katy Armstrong.
Georgia, who joined the show in 2010, said: “I have had an amazing four years on Coronation Street. I have had some fantastic storylines and worked with some wonderful actors.
“I am very excited about what the future holds. While I will be sorry to say goodbye to Weatherfield, I am looking forward to the challenge of new roles.”
Executive producer, Stuart, said: “Georgia is a talented actress who has been a great asset to the show.
“The decision to write out the character of Katy Armstrong is based on storyline discussions and will be one of the consequences of the current drama involving the Windass/Armstrong clan.
“Katy will not be killed off and the door will be left open for a possible return. We wish Georgia every success with her future career.”
