Kym Marsh is feeling emotional after receiving her final Coronation Street scripts.

Kym, who has played Michelle Connor for almost 14 years, has been flooded with support and good luck messages as she waves goodbye to the cobbles.

"Sooooo......had my very last scripts for @itvcorrie the end of an era is in sight! I’m emotional to say the least!!" she tweeted with crying emojis.

The 43-year-old hasn't revealed how Michelle will be leaving Weatherfield, but fans are hoping she'll get revenge on her cheating fiance Robert Preston.

One suggested that she should go on to manage a posh restaurant in London after helping Robert to run his bistro.

"Omg this is gonna break my heart! Can’t wait to see how the ending plays out," said another fan.

"Hope Michelle gets the happy ending she deserves," said another Corrie viewer.

Michelle is currently blissfully unaware that Robert, played by Tristan Gemmill, is leading a double life and is also engaged to Vicky Jefferies who is expecting his baby.

The actress , who has played Michelle since 2006, wanted to explore new roles, with the door left open for the character's return.

Kym said in a statement: “When I was lucky enough to be offered four episodes on Coronation Street I could never in my wildest dreams have thought I’d be here 13 years later.

“It’s been an incredibly difficult decision but it feels like the right time for me to take a break from the show and explore some other roles.

“But this isn’t the last you’ve heard of Michelle Connor, she’ll be back! I can’t wait to see what the writers have in store for the future.”

Kym first shot to fame in 2000 on ITV reality show Popstars, eventually becoming a singer in Hear’Say.

She made her television acting debut in 2005, in an episode of the BBC One soap opera Doctors, then became a panelist on ITV show Loose Women before making her debut on the ITV soap in 2006 as a singer who became a barmaid and later a landlady at the Rovers Return.

After the heartbreaking loss of her baby boy at 23 weeks of pregnancy, and discovering that her husband Steve McDonald had secretly fathered a son with Leanne Battersby, Michelle found a shoulder to cry on with Robert and romance blossomed.

 

But now he looks set to break her heart.
