Kimberly Hart-Simpson has reportedly filmed her final scenes as sex worker Nicky in Coronation Street.
The character was introduced as a new love interest for Daniel (Rob Mallard) earlier this year but left the cobbles last month to start a new life with her young daughter.
According to The Sun, those scenes were the final ones to feature Hart-Simpson - a life-long Corrie fan - but the actress could be brought back in 2021 after impressing producers with her short stint on the show.
"Nicky's proved really popular with viewers and the bosses absolutely love Kimberly," a source told the newspaper.
"The character has gone off for the storyline to develop but the door is very much open for her return."
Coronation Street continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV.
