Katie McGlynn jokes she's been in Coronation Street 'too long'

Katie McGlynn has joked she has been in "Coronation Street" "too long".

The cobbles favourite has played Sinead Tinker on the ITV soap since 2013, but it was recently reported she could be set to leave the show, and her quip has now fuelled such speculation.

When asked by "Celebrity Juice" host Keith Lemon how long she has been on the soap, she joked: "Too long."

Keith then cheekily replied: "Get out then."

And just days after the last night's (09.05.19) episode was recorded, rumours were rife that Katie was set to quit the show.

A source said at the time: "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."

However, "Corrie" insisted 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."
