It has also been revealed the character - played by Ian Bartholomew - will not get away with his crimes so he’ll either end up in prison, or dead.

There’s no confirmation on exactly when he will leave, but it is likely his exit has been delayed because of lockdown earlier this year.

Liz McDonald (Beverley Callard)

Beverley Callard quit her role as Beverley Callard last November to pursue other projects but unfortunately, she didn’t get an exit scene aired on-screen.

The character was set to leave in an explosive final storyline over the summer, but due to the set being shutdown in March, Beverley’s final scenes were delayed.

And with the star now too busy to film, her exit has instead occurred off screen.
