Claire Kings Quits Coronation Street
Coronation Street star Claire King has announced that she has quit the soap.
The actress, who is best known for her role as Kim Tate on Emmerdale, arrived on the cobbles in 2014 as Erica Holroyd and soon became involved with the community.
After building up a friendship with Mary Taylor, she then found love with corner shop and kebab shop owner Dev Alahan.
However, the actress has now revealed that she has decided to leave her character behind to focus on other projects.
Releasing a statement explaining her decision, Digital Spy reported the iconic soap actress saying: “It’s been a dream come true to tread those famous cobbles.
“I was only meant to stay for six weeks initially, so for Erica to be so popular that she stayed for three years and even worked in The Rovers was a real compliment to me as an actress.”
While Erica will leave the street, she could return in the future.
