Georgia Taylor quits Coronation Street

By
Actress Georgia Taylor, better known as Coronation Street's Toyah Battersby, is quitting the soap after five years.

Her contract expires in October but she will stay until January to give writers time to come up with an "explosive storyline" for her departure.

"I have had the most amazing time working on Coronation Street but the time has come to move on and try my hand at other things," she said. "I have made some wonderful friends that I know I will have for life. I will be sad to leave but I am very excited about the future."

Kieran Roberts, producer of the ITV soap, said: "Georgia Taylor has been a huge asset to the show during her five years here. She is a talented young actress and we will be sorry to see her go but we totally understand her decision to move on and we wish her every success for the future."
