Millie Gibson on Coronation Street
Millie appeared in the ITV soap, Coronation Street for almost four years playing troubled teen Kelly Neelan. She joined the Corrie cast in 2019 and has become one of the show’s most important characters. Her final scenes brought tragedy and heartbreak after her revenge plot on Gary Windass took a disastrous turn.
On Friday, September 23, Kelly made her exit in an action-packed ending to a week-long revenge storyline. She made the decision to leave Weatherfield after calling off her engagement to Aadi Alahan.
Following the broadcast of her on-screen farewell, Millie stated on Instagram that she’d decided to leave Coronation Street with “a very heavy, but full heart.” She wrote,
“These past 4 years have been like no other and I can’t begin to describe how much I’m going to miss this place and the people in it. Everyone that has been a part of this storyline has been nothing but incredible and I couldn’t have asked for a better block to end on,”
“I’ve had the honour of being surrounded by such talent and kindness over the years and have met friends and a second family for life. I’ll never forget my time here or the memories it has given me. I can’t say thank you enough for letting me be a small piece of the Coronation Street family.”
Coronation Street also honored Millie’s heartfelt exit from the show, which shared behind-the-scenes footage of the actress’s farewell episode. Millie got a standing ovation from the cast and crew, as she told them all,
“I’m going to miss this place so much.”
What’s next for Millie Gibson after exiting from Coronation Street?
Millie Gibson has revealed her future plans following her dramatic leave from Coronation Street. While talking to Mirror Online, she said,
“I have no responsibilities – I don’t have kids, I don’t have a mortgage to pay or anything like that, I’m still grateful to be living at home. So I thought I’m just going to see what else the world has. If it does, it does – that would be quite good, wouldn’t it?”
“I just thought I might as well see what happens while I’m still young. Because I’m so young I thought I’ve got to leave. It was a decision where it would always be in the back of my mind if I didn’t make it, so I had to just go with it and see what happens.”
