Coronation Street's guide dog Mr Quinn is retiring after six years.

The talented pooch - whose first scenes were alongside Chris Gascoyne - worked with blind extra Annie Giles-Quinn, but he will no longer be pawing along the cobbles as she now has a new "Corrie" canine, Miss Sally.

A tweet on the official "Coronation Street" Twitter account read: "Let's all "paws" to bid farewell to Coronation Street's resident guide dog, Mr Quinn who is retiring today after 6 years as an extra on the cobbles. (sic)"

Black labrador Mr Quinn is a legend on the Manchester-based set and is even able to turn his paws to live acting - having appeared in the opening scene of the soap's last live episode.

Bill Roache - who plays Ken Barlow on the soap - is a huge admirer of the four-legged friend.

Annie told the Coronation Street Blog: "He's so calm and beautiful. William Roache summed it up when he said, "Mr Quinn looks right into your soul"."

Several "Corrie" fans took to Twitter to Mr Quinn for his "outstanding service".
