ITV Corrie star Melanie Hill quits soap after seven years playing Cathy Matthews
Coronation Street favourite Melanie Hill has quit the soap after seven years of playing Cathy Matthews. The actress, whose character arrived in Weatherfield in 2015 as a love interest for café worker Roy Cropper, is leaving the show to spend more time with her family.
Melanie, whose character now co-owns Corrie's iconic newsagents The Kabin with her partner Brian Packham, made the difficult decision after taking stock of her life following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Melanie, who turned 60 in January, admitted: “It’s not been an easy thing to decide. My family has been important but the pandemic has made a lot of people think about the future," reports The Mirror.
