Coronation Street Cast member Millie Gibson made a highly dramatic exit as Kelly Neelan.
A week-long revenge plot came to a head in Friday’s (September 23) episode with Kelly deciding she had to start over away from Weatherfield after surviving a kidnapping and assassination attempt.
Kelly has been haunted by the ghost of her father Rick Neelan ever since she discovered he was murdered several years ago by her guardian Gary Windass.

Kelly hired her dad’s ex-boyfriend Kieron to kill Gary, but when he had second thoughts, he kidnapped her and planned to kill her as well.
Friday’s episode (September 23) was a race against time as Gary desperately tried to find Kieron before he could hurt Kelly. He managed to get Aadi to help him and they left to watch Kieron.
Kieron had taken Kelly to an old mill where he revealed his idea of framing her for Gary’s murder and then killing her to make it look like a murder-suicide plot.
In the distance, Gary and Aadi could see Kieron’s van and then spotted Kelly on the roof of the mill. Just as Kieron went to kick Kelly off the roof, Gary ran onto the stage begging to take her place.
In a fierce action, a shot was fired and it was revealed that Aadi had been injured. Kieron fled the scene as ambulances arrived to rush Aadi for treatment.
Gary wrote a story to Dev explaining that someone Rick owed money to had hunted Kelly and Aadi had been shot trying to protect her.
Thankfully, Aadi steadies himself and finds Kelly at his bedside, but she tearfully gives him back his ring and tells him the engagement is off because she’s too “toxic” for him.
Kelly then went home to pack so she could get off the road. Gary begged her to hear his side of the story as he explained why he had killed Rick all those years ago.
After hearing about all the horrible things her father had done, Kelly told Gary that while she wouldn’t report him to the police, she could never forgive what he had done.
Kelly then set out to rebuild her life while Gary burst into Maria’s arms…
The action-packed hour concludes Millie Gibson’s three-year run on the cobblestones, which has explored stories of homelessness, gang violence and drug use.
Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV and is broadcast on the ITV Hub.
