The tearkjerking storyline means there can be no return to Corrie for Katie, who leaves after six sensational years in Weatherfield.

A TV insider said: “From her two rocky relationships to the mini-bus crash, she’s been in some of Corrie’s most captivating storylines.

“And producers will be sad to see Katie leave the soap, but she will make an unforgettable departure which is set to leave viewers in tears.”

The news is set to floor boyfriend Daniel Osbourne, played by Rob Mallard, who has stuck with her since she was first diagnosed with cervical cancer last year.

She had to make the agonising decision between having their baby or having radiotherapy which might save her life.

She shunned the treatment and had their son, Bertie, in January.

Sinead turned to homeopathic remedies but the cancer spread, and she seemed to be beating the disease after having aggressive chemotherapy.

The Underworld knicker factory worker’s loved ones her set to be hardest hit, particularly Daniel and her former boyfriend, Chesney Brown, Sam Aston.

The tragedy also greatly affects Roy Cropper as it brings back memories of losing wife Hayley to terminal pancreatic cancer.

Katie, who was nominated for a British Soap Award earlier this year, is the latest in a long line of big names to have quite Coronation Street recently.

Other cast members leaving include Kym Marsh, Faye Brookes and Tristan Gemmill.
