Sally Ann Matthews addresses Coronation Street break

Coronation Street star Sally Ann Matthews has left fans in quite a tizz after revealing she will be missing from our screens for a while.

Matthews plays Jenny Connor, the landlady who runs the Rovers Return alongside her feisty stepdaughter Daisy.

But fans were concerned recently when the actor admitted she hadn’t been filming for a while. In an Instagram Live session, she revealed she was able to travel due to her open schedule.

“I chose to get on an aeroplane because I’m particularly quiet at work,” said Matthews to her fans.

“I’ve got like a million years off, so I chose to go on an areoplane. I’ve been to Cyprus twice in the past five weeks, and we landed last night and we came back.”jenny connor, coronation street

Adding to the mystery of the situation, Matthews shared even more imminent travel plans: “My next holiday plans are on Saturday. We’re going to go off on the boat, and then I’m going to just chill on the boat and do nowt, pretty much.”

 

She also added that she might be on the lookout for a job while abroad: “And then I’m going to go back to Cyprus and do nowt. And at some point, I might get a job and someone might employ me, potentially.”

Of course, fans were shocked to hear of the laid-back plans, particularly as Corrie airs three times a week. Their worries about Matthews’ future on the show were not eased by her uncomfortable response.

“Have you left the street? Hmm. Hang on, next question.” she said, answering a fan query.

So, could Matthews’ absence be some planned downtime or perhaps a package deal that was too good to miss?

All we know is, as Matthews concluded: “You’re not going to be seeing Jenny for quite a long while. So that’s that.”

Digital Spy has reached out to ITV for comment.
