Julie Carp is to dump Dev Alahan after overhearing him declaring his love for newcomer Talisa.
Amorous corner shop owner Dev will be left further humiliated after Talisa reveals that she doesn’t reciprocate his feelings. And when Dev then pleads for Julie to give him another chance, it seems that she refuses to entertain the idea.
Next week’s episodes of the ITV soap will see Brian Packham overjoyed that his former love has ended things with Dev. But will Julie end up back in Brian’s arms?
Certainly by Friday’s episode, Julie is remaining adamant that she won’t settle for second best and go back to Dev. But when she calls on Brian, Julie ends up dropping a bombshell – has she had second thoughts about his offer to travel the world or will she head off alone?
The episodes look set to feature Julie’s departure after seven years in Weatherfield. Speaking back in February when she announced that she was leaving, actress Katy Cavanagh said:
“I have decided it’s time to take a break from the cobbles and pursue other projects and opportunities. I have loved every minute in the world of Julie Carp and I’m not ruling out a return to the Street in the future.
“However, I am looking forward to a new challenge and a pair of flat shoes,”
Producer Stuart Blackburn added: “Julie Carp has become a warm, wonderful and eccentric character able to raise a laugh and a tear in the same scene. Everyone at Corrie wishes Katy all the very best and hopefully as far as Julie is concerned, the cobbles haven’t seen the last of her.”
