Kylie leaving Coronation Street

David Platt, played by Jack P Shepherd, will be devastated by the death of his wife Kylie Platt (Paula Lane), ITV has said.

Bosses are keeping the details of how the troubled mother dies under wraps, but a new promotional trailer shows Kylie packing her belongings into a car before the mood switches and the vehicle is revealed to be a hearse.

Corrie star Paula said: "It was very emotional to film the scenes knowing that I would never return and her death has huge consequences for David and all the family."

The 30-year-old actress has played Kylie since 2010. Her final episodes will be broadcast in the week beginning July 11.

Coronation Street Fans took to Twitter to have their say.
