Coronation Street star Jennie McAlpine has filmed her exit scenes as Fiz Stape as the character says goodbye to the cobbles for several months as the actress heads on maternity leave.
Jennie currently has a three-year-old son named Albert and announced earlier this year on social media that he was going to be a big brother. The presence of Tyrones battleaxe grandmother Evelyn Plummer will be the catalyst for Fiz departing the cobbles – but is it the end of the road for their relationship?
Evelyn is certainly causing a rift between them as Tyrone refuses to turf her out, despite her cutting jibes and often unreasonable behaviour. And when Fiz becomes unable to share a house with her, she will pack her bags.
But has Tyrone been forced to choose between the woman he loves and his newly found nan or is Fiz just heading off for some breathing space?
Jennie took to Instagram to share a snap of herself on the cobbles on her last day and she quipped that she no longer has to hide behind Ford Fiestas to conceal her baby bump.
Shell certainly be a miss to Tyrone but he is bound to have his hands full in Fizs absence keeping Evelyn in check – lets just hope he has learned the error of his ways and stays well away from Gemma Winter while Fiz is out of town.
Jennies final scenes before her temporary exit will air towards the end of the year.
