Coronation Street fans are in shock as Millie Gibson, who plays Kelly Neelan on the ITV soap, has reportedly quit.
According to The Sun, fan favorite Millie, 18, will leave the cobbles in the autumn.
This comes as ITV revealed Kelly would play a prominent role in Corrie’s Autumn Tales as she began to become suspicious of Gary who, of course, killed her loan shark father Rick in 2019.

A source told The Sun: “Millie is a huge talent.
“She’s loved her time on the soap but there’s a lot of excitement about what she’s going to do next.
“All have been sworn to secrecy about their exit storyline.”
Does Kelly Neelan die on Coronation Street?
The secrecy surrounding Millie’s exit story has led to speculation that the character could be killed off.
Gary’s past appears to be catching up with him this autumn, as ITV says: “Kelly increasingly sees Gary as a father figure and continues to be indebted to Gary as he rescues her from the clutches of Papa Rick’s shady associates.
“But after seeing how far Gary is willing to go to protect her, Kelly wonders if he’s crossed that line before.”
What did fans say about Millie Gibson’s departure from Corrie?
Fans have taken to Twitter to express their displeasure at Millie’s departure.
“Oh I’m disappointed I love Kelly’s character,” one fan tweeted. “No doubt Millie will go to great things she is an amazing actress.”
Another said: “Oh no such a shame she is leaving Millie Gibson in Corrie you are my absolute favorite character.”
A third wrote: “Disappointed to see Kelly go but you just know Millie Gibson is going to be the latest star to come out of Corrie and be a huge hit.”
And a fourth added: “Can’t believe she’s out of heaven – she’s such a talented young actress I hope she stays in the industry.”
Millie first appeared on the soap opera in 2019 when Kelly arrived looking for her father.
She was initially suspicious of Gary, thinking he murdered Rick, but she couldn’t prove it.

Kelly then settled permanently on the cobbles when promoted by Toyah and Imran.
Since then, she has been involved in several controversial storylines, first releasing a nude video of Asha.
And then she was part of the gang that attacked Seb and Nina, which eventually resulted in Seb’s death and Kelly’s for murder.
Her conviction was overturned when it was revealed that Corey had killed Seb and Kelly had made amends with the Street’s residents.
She currently lives with Gary and his wife Maria.
