Coronation Street Legend To Leave

 Helen WorthHelen Worth









Actress Helen Worth is to leave Coronation Street after five decades. 

Worth celebrates her golden anniversary on the show next month, having played Gail Rodwell, formerly Gail Platt, since 1974. 

The soap said her character Gail will "bid farewell to Weatherfield in a major storyline for the Platt family". 

Speaking on the decision to leave, Worth, 73, said: "I made the decision at the start of the year and spoke to the producers who were very kind and understanding. 

“I have been truly blessed to have been given the most incredible scripts week in week out, and to have worked with fantastic actors, directors and a brilliant crew. 

“The past 50 years have flown by and I don't think the fact that I am leaving has quite sunk in yet.” 

Gail first appeared on screen on 29 July 1974 and has been the centre of several major storylines over the past five decades, including one of the most controversial ones in 1999 when her 13-year-old daughter Sarah became pregnant.
