CORRIE BLIMEY! Coronation Street legend films her final scenes as she quits soap after 13 years

CORONATION Street star Lisa George has filmed her final scenes on the ITV soap, The Sun can reveal.

The actress – who played Beth Tinker in the ITV soap – hosted a night out with some of her cobbles co-stars last night sparking rumours she had finished filming.

Last year The Sun exclusively revealed how Lisa had quit the soap and would leave this summer in a dramatic storyline.

Lisa went on to claim she had signed a new contract – but The Sun can confirm she has now finished filming.

Sources confirmed that the actress has left the cobbles.

Actress Lisa, who has played Beth on the ITV soap since 2011, was joined by her on-screen husband Andy Whyment as well as her on-screen son Colson Smith at Manchester’s Media City.

Corrie legend Sally Dynevor was also at the bash, and sparked further rumours that Lisa has finished filming as she posted a gushing tribute to her on Instagram.

Sharing a snap of them posing together, Sally wrote: “Love you @lisageorge.”The actress has played Beth Tinker for 13 years but has now finished filming

Sally also shared a snap of Andy and Colson together.

Other Street favourites including Georgia Taylor, Jane Danson and Alison King were also spotted heading to the bash.

 

Lisa’s exit as Beth is still being kept as a closely guarded secret.

However a source previously revealed the plans for Beth’s swan song from the cobbles.

They said: “Beth’s a larger than life character who’s never shied away from a clash.

“Her exit will be as dramatic as she is.”

Lisa recently opened up about her health issues, revealing she is facing going blind.

The actress has NAION – non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy – which causes sudden vision loss in one eye.

Coronation Street’s shock exits 2024

Just 11 per cent of people in the UK suffer with the condition, which can leave some fully blind.

Lisa’s doctor told her that she would never get her full sight back and that the damage was irreversible.
