Coronation Street binman Trevor Dean will be written out of the soap later this year, Digital Spy can confirm.

New producer Phil Collinson took the decision not to renew actor Steve Jackson's contract.

The news comes just hours after the announcement of Vicky Binns's decision to leave her character of Molly Dobbs behind after five years in the role.

An ITV spokesperson this morning told DS: "We can confirm that Steve will be leaving at the end of his current contract."

Trevor joined the Weatherfield soap in January and quickly caught the eye of knicker stitcher Janice Battersby (Vicky Entwhistle).

However, after becoming Janice's lodger, Trevor took a keen interest in Underworld boss Carla Connor (Alison King), leaving a frustrated Janice out in the cold.

Jackson is due to film his final scenes within the next couple of months and will bow out on screen in the autumn.

Others due to depart before the end of the year currently include Jack Duckworth (Bill Tarmey), Claire and Ashley Peacock (Julia Haworth and Steve Arnold) and Natasha Blakeman (Rachel Leskovac). Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
