10th April 2022

Coronation Street star Alexandra Mardell has shared a collection of sweet behind-the-scenes snaps after her character Emma Brooker made an emotional exit on Friday.

During the latest instalment, Emma decided to leave Weatherfield for a new life in Australia with her boyfriend Jon, who is the grandson of Ted.

It comes after actress Alexandra, 28, announced earlier this year that she had quit the ITV soap after almost four years of playing Emma.

Taking to Instagram after her character's exit on Friday, Alexandra posted a collection of sweet behind-the-scenes snaps.

She penned: "And she’s off [heart emojis] Finally her happy ever after. Last goodbye, I promise. So much love xxx."

In the snaps, it sees Alexandra pictured with several different co-stars as they pose on the cobbles for one last group snap.

While a different photo sees Alexandra dressed as Emma as she poses behind the bar in the Rovers Return Inn while pretending to pull a pint.

The actress' co-stars were quick to share their devastation about her soap exit and how much they will miss her on the cobbles.

Amy Barlow star Elle Mulvaney put: "Missing you already."

Kelly Neelan star Millie Gibson wrote: "Beautiful Emma."

While Maria Connor star Samia Longchambon added a collection of heart emojis.

Releasing a statement earlier this year, Alexandra said: "Playing Emma, on the most iconic street there is, has been the best experience of my life. Four years have gone so fast.

"Compared to other cast members I still feel like a newbie, which makes my decision to leave all the more difficult. But I feel it’s the right time for me.

"I can’t thank everyone at Coronation Street enough for welcoming me and trusting me to tell so many wonderful and heartfelt stories. And of course for the friendships. When I see pink, I will always think of Emma."

While Coronation Street producer Iain MacLeod added: "Big-hearted Emma has found herself in a massive pickle – one which will ultimately cause her to wave goodbye to the cobbles. At least for now…

"Alexandra has been pure Corrie gold since the first moment she lit up the screen in 2018 and I am sure viewers will miss Emma’s sunny, silly sweetness as much as I will.

"She has left a memorable impression on the Street and I wish Alexandra all the best in the next chapter of her career."

Coronation Street continues on weekdays on ITV.
