Kylie Platt is to meet her maker in an upcoming episode of Coronation Street when she’s dramatically killed off.
Actress Paula Lane is leaving the ITV soap to have a second baby, but there’ll be no way back for her character Kylie, who will die in scenes to be broadcast later this month.
Soap bosses are remaining tight lipped about the nature of Kylie’s demise, but her death is set to be unexpected in nature.
An upcoming storyline will see Kylie and David make plans to exit Weatherfield with their kids in order to finally put the past behind them.
With the late Tony Stewart having taking the rap for killing Callum, Kylie is feeling distinctly uncomfortable about an innocent man being blamed for a crime she herself committed.
Her solution is to leave Weatherfield behind, little suspecting that the Grim Reaper is coming for her!
The dramatic cliffhanger will be the final scenes for Lane, who has been a mainstay of the ITV soap for six years. Speaking about the upcoming drama, the actress said:
“It was very emotional to film the scenes knowing that I would never return and her death has huge consequences for David and all the family.”
Kylie’s final episodes will air the week beginning Monday 11 July and Corrie has already filmed a special on-air promo that shows Kylie packing her belongings into a car, only for for the vehicle to then be revealed to be a hearse surrounded by her devastated by her devastated family and friends.
RIP Kylie Platt…
