Coronation Street star Vicky Binns has revealed that she was thrilled with her dramatic exit from the soap.

The actress performed her final scenes as Molly Dobbs in an hour-long live episode last night as the shop worker died from the injuries she sustained in the tram crash disaster.

Shortly before passing away, Molly was at the centre of a final dramatic twist as she came clean over her affair with Kevin Webster as she spent her dying moments with his wife Sally.

Speaking during a webchat on Corrie's official site last night, Binns commented: "Now it's finished I'm feeling overwhelmed. Very elated. It was difficult to play the dying scenes. Definitely a challenge as it's something I've never done before. I was honoured to do it."

She added: "I will miss everyone but what a way to leave!"

Binns said that she would miss working with screen husband Alan Halsall (Tyrone Dobbs) the most and named their wedding storyline as a "brilliant memory".

In a final message to fans, she said: "Thanks everyone for watching and your support."

Molly was the second casualty of Corrie's 50th anniversary week, following the death of Ashley Peacock (Steven Arnold) in Wednesday night's episode. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
