Katie McGlynn looks set to leave "Coronation Street".
The 25-year-old actress - who was this week nominated in the Best Female Dramatic Performance category for the upcoming British Soap Awards - has portrayed Sinead Tinker on the cobbles since 2013, but she is reportedly set to bow out of the role later this year.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Katie has just been nominated for a British Soap Award so it's a big loss and not what bosses would have wanted to hear."
But "Corrie" insist the former "Waterloo Road" star is "fully committed" to playing out the rest of her character's cervical cancer storyline, and say the plot "still has a long way to go".
A spokesperson said: "Katie is fully committed to playing out the extremely important storyline she is currently portraying on screen.
"This story still has a long way to go. Any speculation threatens to undermine the storyline for viewers."
In January, Katie admitted her "Coronation Street" future was "up in the air".
She said at the time: "I'm contracted well into this year but it is up in the air. Although I have to wait and see what happens, I quite like not knowing.
"With the nature of my storyline, I guess it's 50/50. Either way I'd be happy, though."
The reports come just hours after Faye Brookes confirmed she will be leaving her "Corrie" role of Kate Connor following "four fabulous years" in Weatherfield.
She tweeted: "Thanks to everyone for your amazing support, but after 4 fabulous years in Weatherfield it's time for me to explore new opportunities, I've loved playing Kate Connor, but she needs a break for a little while and so with a song in my heart I'm off to pastures new. (sic)"
Faye's decision comes just two months after her on-screen fiancée Rana Habeeb, played by Bhavna Limbachia, was killed off.
But Bhavna later admitted it was her decision to have her "Corrie" character meet her maker.
