Last month, HOAR reported how the popular actress, 22, was leaving the show after 12 years.

Ellie was joined by a host of Corrie stars, including on-screen love interests Craig Tinker, played by Colson Smith and Jackson Hodge, portrayed by actor Joseph Evans at her leaving do last month.

The TV star also partied the night away with her cousin Brooke, actor Ryan Russell, who plays Michael Bailey and Channique Sterling-Brown, who stars as resident lawyer Dee Dee.

The stars looked in good spirits as they posed for a flurry of photos on a balcony of a bar in Manchester.

Ellie looked stunning in a figure-hugging black dress with a thigh-high split and kept warm with a leather jacket and black heeled boots.

She styled her brunette tresses in loose curls and opted for subtle make-up for the special occasion.

She wrote alongside the post: “Finally getting round to posting these pictures from my leaving doo, we had so much fun and I’m so lucky to call these people my friends.

“The last picture is the woman I owe my life to and she’ll probably kill me for posting this!!!!!!!

“She chaperoned me for the majority of my time at Corrie and she’s been through EVERYTHING with me, she’s my second mum and I honestly would not be who I am without her, if you see this Cinds, I love you so much.”

When the star left the soap, fans felt her final storyline was “rushed.”

She left Weatherfield in a packed vehicle with ex-boyfriend Jackson and their daughter Miley.

Ellie recently took to Coronation Street’s Instagram account for a sweet farewell video.

She told the camera: “Just want to say a massive, massive thank you to everyone who has watched Corrie over the past 12 years and supported me.

“And also to my Corrie family, I am going to miss you all so much.

“And yeah just thank you so much to everyone who has always said nice words and really supported me.”
