havna Limbachia has confirmed she is leaving "Coronation Street".

The 34-year-old actress is to depart her role as Rana Habeeb later this year and has teased fans that her alter ego will get an "amazing exit", having extended her contract for long enough to let her final storyline play out.

In a video message shared to her Twitter account Bhavna said: "Hi guys I just wanted to give you a little message to say thank you for following Rana's journey and for the continued support of the storyline.

"I do have some news - my journey at "Coronation Street" will be coming to an end but don't worry guys, I have extended my contract. "I've had a wonderful time here but there's still lots more to film and I'm really grateful to Iain [McLeod], our producer, for respecting my decision to leave and we have collaborated to come up with an amazing exit storyline so thank you so much.

"I really should get going now as these scenes won't film themselves!"

Faye Brookes: Corrie's Rana death was the hardest thing I've done

While Bhavna remained tight-lipped on how her character will depart the cobbles, it has been claimed that Rana will die in Kate Connor's (Faye Brookes) arms on their wedding day.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "This will devastate fans of the show who have grown to love Kate and Rana, who they nicknamed Kana. This was very much Bhavna's decision, she told Kate Oates last year she wanted to try other things, and sat down with Iain the minute he joined.

"She wanted Rana to be killed off as she didn't like the idea of just splitting them up as it would upset the fans of the show. The scenes will be heartbreaking to watch. Rana will die in Kate's arms."
