Updated: 'Coronation Street' Michelle Collins: 'I'm not quitting soap'

By
Coronation Street star Michelle Collins has insisted that there is no truth in rumors that she is quitting the soap.

Earlier today, reports suggested that Collins is bowing out from her role as Rovers Return boss Stella Price next year as she wants to spend more time with her teenage daughter Maia Rose.

However, in an official statement, Collins insisted: "I am very happy working on Coronation Street and have no plans to leave the show.

"I have recently signed a new contract for another 12 months and have not said I'm planning to leave the show after that time. I'm really enjoying playing Stella and have made some firm friends on the cast.

"There are a lot of exciting storylines in the pipeline for Stella, including the recent casting of Sue Johnston as her mum, and I'm relishing the chance to be part of such an amazing show."

Coronation Street bosses announced Johnston's casting last month and viewers will see her arrive on the cobbles in June.

Stella is also currently being cheated on by her troubled partner Karl Munro (John Michie), who has struggled with a gambling addiction in recent months. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
