OFF SET UPSET ‘There’s something going on’ say Corrie fans left panicked over ‘behind-the-scenes drama’ after major stars set to leave

CORONATION Street fans have been left panicked over apparent behind-the-scenes drama on the soap.

Stars behind the scenes have cryptically hinted that all is not well on the long-running ITV serial drama.

Sally Anne Matthews, 53, has played the role of Jenny Bradley – the troubled daughter of legendary villain Alan Bradley – on the cobbles since 1986.

The actress first departed the show in 1991 before making a brief return two years later.

This was before she made a full comeback in 2015 and has been stalwart on Coronation Street ever since as the landlady of the Rovers Return.

However, we recently reported on the cryptic video that she left for fans on social media.

She spoke to fans during a late night Instagram live where she revealed she hasn’t filmed on the cobbles for a while.

The star also explained that fans shouldn’t expect to see her character for a long time.

She said: “I chose to get on an airplane because I’m particularly quiet at work.

“I’ve got like a million years off, so I chose to go on an aeroplane and I chose to remember happier times. And then I’m going to go back to Cyprus, and do nowt.The actress flew over to Cyprus after she lamented that work was 'slow'

“And at some point I might get a job and someone might employ me, potentially.”

Fans quickly took to soap forums in their droves to comment.

One wrote: “No confirmation but proof that all is not well behind the scenes.”

A second stated: “There is something going on behind the scenes. Quite clear the cast aren’t all too happy about the contracts and block storytelling.

“She certainly doesn’t sound very happy with the show. Makes you wonder what things are like behind the scenes,” noted a third fan.

Coronation Street’s shock exits 2024

As a fourth wrote: “This is weird nonetheless, and doesn’t really inspire confidence in the way they are treating their actors.”

And a fifth added: “It’s clear all isn’t well behind the scenes.”

Sally was previously asked if she had been axed by new boss Kate Brooks before making an awkward sound.

She then admitted: “You’re not going to be seeing Jenny for quite a long while. So that’s that.”
