"Coronation Street" character Rana Habeeb has met her end in a tragic factory collapse.

The character, who is played by Bhavna Limbachia, was killed off in scenes of the ITV soap which aired on Wednesday (20.03.19), in which she was crushed when Underworld's roof collapsed on top of her.

Rana's death marks the end of the long running and popular relationship she had with Kate Connor, played by Faye Brooks, who had been waiting for Rana to arrive on their wedding day when tragedy struck.

The factory roof gave way after Carla Connor, played by Alison King, ignored advice to have it replaced and now the news of Rana's death has left her shattered by guilt, whilst Kate is overwhelmed with grief.

However, what Carla doesn't realise is the accident was anything but, as someone deliberately sabotaged Underworld's roof and so has her blood on their hands.

The tear-jerking scenes bring an end to Rana's moving storyline, which has seen her struggle with her sexuality and with finding acceptance from her devout Muslim family who disapproved of her decision, as well as breaking the heart of her husband Zeedan in the process, and keeping up the pretence of a fake marriage for the benefit of her mum and dad.

After Rana's father passed away, she began getting closer to her mother Saira, but was devastated when she refused to attend her and Kate's wedding.

For Rana's actress Bhavna, the decision to leave the soap came as she wanted to pursue other roles.

The star spent much time researching for Rana's storyline and supported charities involved with helping people deal with their sexuality and religion, and intends to continue her involvement with the projects outside of her role in "Corrie".
