Coronation Street's Millie Gibson sends 'love you' message to co-star on final week

Coronation Street's Millie Gibson has issued a heartfelt message to her co-star.

The 18-year-old is renowned for her role as Kelly Neelan on the Cobbles. However, her time on Weatherfield is set to come to an end this week with an epic stunt that will be broadcast on Friday.

Millie was emotional about her Coronation Street farewell as she has formed close relationships with her co-stars. She has taken to Instagram to send a gushing tribute to Sally Ann Matthews, who plays Jenny Connor.

She shared a collage of snaps of the two and said: "Sally Ann Matthews trying to keep her birthday secret. Happiest of birthdays to one of my favourite people. I love you like a sister, mother and a Jenny."

Millie issued a statement to confirm her Corrie exit last month. She said: "Now that the news is out about me exiting the cobbles, I just want to say I've had the most incredible 4 years.

"Growing up here, I've made long-lasting friendships, learnt so much and I am forever grateful for my time and the storylines I have been given. I'm really looking forward to you guys seeing the future episodes coming up and I can't thank @coronationstreet enough for letting me be a small piece in this beautiful family. Kelly Neelan will be a part of my heart always.

"Thank you to you all for being so supportive [heart emoji]."
