According to The Sun, Sophie, who returned to the ITV soap as Holly Barton in March this year, is quitting the ITV soap.

"She's already filmed her final scenes which are being kept under wraps. Her leaving the show is seen as one of the big storylines of the next few months."

Sophie left the soap in 2012 after three years in her role.

In recent months viewers have seen her troubled character become addicted to heroin once again.

The news comes after Dales legend Kelvin Fletcher left the soap after playing Andy Sugden for 20 years.
