The cobbles star bowed out of the soap after nearly seven years in Weatherfield when her alter-ego Sinead Osbourne lost her battle with cervical cancer, and the 26-year-old actress has thanked her “stunning” co-stars for their work on the emotional plot.
‘RIP Sinead Tinker… for nearly 7 years you’ve been apart of my life walking the cobbles of @itvcorrie – thank you to everyone for the support and a hats off to all of my co stars who have been STUNNING throughout this storyline …and remember, GO FOR YOUR SMEARS! #sinead (sic)’.
Katie recently admitted playing a cancer victim has really made her “appreciate the small things in life”.
She wrote on Twitter:
‘Sinead feeling the rain for the last time has really made me appreciate the small things in life that we all take for granted
‘Your beautiful messages mean everything… I wouldn’t be able to watch Sinead’s final days if it wasn’t for the support of every single one of you… I’m going to miss Sinead Tinker so much, but I am so humbled to hear we’re doing this storyline justice (sic)’.
Katie also admits it has been a “privilege” to have played out the cervical cancer story, and she feels “relieved” to have taken on the plot.
‘I felt like we have a privilege having a platform like Coronation Street to portray real life.
‘People are dying from cancer, life isn’t a fairytale, if we hadn’t of gone all the way through, it wouldn’t have made as much of an impact.
‘I’m so relieved we’ve done this storyline’.
