“Coronation Street” has finally responded to rumors that Kate Connor will be killed off after Faye Brookes, departure from the soap made the headlines. The sudser assured Brookes’ fans that her character will not be brutally killed off.
“We don’t ever discuss future storylines but Kate Connor will not be killed off and the door will be open for her to return,” a Coronation Street spokesperson said. The statement was made in response to the report released by an unverified tabloid claiming that Kate will die in the autumn.
The response issued by Coronation Street matched the assurance given by Brookes when she announced her exit at the end of last month.
