Corrie bosses have confirmed the door will be left open for Alexandra to return to the role of Emma.

Speaking about her decision to leave after four years on the cobbles, she said: “Playing Emma, on the most iconic street there is, has been the best experience of my life.

“Four years have gone so fast.

“Compared to other cast members I still feel like a newbie, which makes my decision to leave all the more difficult.

“But I feel it’s the right time for me.

“I can’t thank everyone at Coronation Street enough for welcoming me and trusting me to tell so many wonderful and heartfelt ­stories.

“And for the friendships.”
