CORONATION Street star Millie Gibson has shared an emotional farewell to fans as she waves goodbye to the show.
The actress – who is best known for playing Kelly Neelan on the ITV soap – threw a leaving bash after announcing her departure.
Millie, 18, was spotted looking glam at the leaving drinks last week, as she was joined by a number of her soap co-stars.
She announced her departure from Corrie after four years as teenager Kelly earlier this year, much to fans disappointment.
Following the party last night, she took to Instagram to pen an emotional message to her fans, thanking them for their support.
"Now that the news is out about me exiting the cobbles, I just wanted to say I've had the most incredible four years," she penned.

"Kelly Neelan will be a part of my heart always. Thank you all for being so supportive."
