Corrie will bid a final farewell to Julie Hesmondhalgh today.
Expect tears all round on set at the soap’s Manchester studio as the actress is filming her final ever scenes as cancer stricken Hayley Cropper.
Fans know that poor Hayley is set to lose her battle with pancreatic cancer early next year following Julie’s decision to leave the soap.
Julie’s co-star Antony Cotton told his followers on Twitter this morning that he was feeling “numb” at the prospect of spending his last day on set with his friend.
He tweeted: “Sat in me dressing room ready for @juliehes’s last day ever on Coronation Street. Feel numb. What a depressing day #thankyouforallofit”
