Katie, who took up the role of Becky last June- 18 months after leaving Coronation Street, teased ‘exciting opportunities’ were in the pipeline.
Katie wrote: ‘Becky Quentin, over and out! It’s been an absolute pleasure playing Becky and getting my teeth into something so different and gritty!
‘As an actor, to be able to portray someone that has so much likeness to extremely current global issues from conspiracy theories to anti-vaxxers, coronavirus and sinophobia… I really hope the storyline has helped raise some important issues and helps people see how easy it is for someone to be sucked into this whole world of fake news and conspiracy!’
