Scriptwriters are currently working on a memorable and dramatic exit for when her character Stella Price films her final scenes next year.
Stella is currently preparing to marry killer Karl, who torched the Rovers earlier in the year and cold-heartedly abandoned dying Sunita.
Hailed a hero for rescuing Stella for the flames, Karl was then able to charm her once more before proposing to her.
High drama is expected as Karl's web of lies unravels - but will Stella be able to accept the man she loves is capable of murder?
The actress said: "Stella Price has been a revelation to play.
"So much has happened to the character since we discovered she was Leanne's real Mum. From catching Karl with barmaid Sunita to her near death experience in the Rovers fire, I've loved playing Stella and will be very sorry to leave her behind."
Corrie producer Stuart Blackburn said: "When an actor decides to leave a programme like Corrie, it means the writing team can creatively scale new heights.
"We promise the tour de force that is Stella Price will leave with a bang."
Earlier this week, the ITV soap announced that it had fired actor Chris Fountain, who plays the soap's Tommy Duckworth, over a video which emerged online showing him rapping about rape and violence.
Fountain later said he understood that his bosses had no choice but to terminate his contract.
The 25-year-old, who previously appeared in Hollyoaks, apologised and said he was "deeply ashamed" of the lyrics he recorded as masked alter-ego The Phantom.
