However the actress has already filmed Sinead’s tragic exit scenes, confirming on Twitter that she had finished filming on the cobbles.

She took to Twitter to confirm she had finished filming over the weekend as she joked: ‘Anybody hiring any actresses around here? 7 years experience on the worlds (sic) longest running soap?’

This gained a lot of responses with some assuming she had left the show against her will  but she later clarified on social media that this was not the case, saying: ‘I wasn’t AXED, it was my decision to leave to pursue other opportunities…this outcome was the only way Sinead would ever leave her family & @itvcorrie behind. It was a mutual decision.’

When do Sinead and Daniel find out the bad news?

Sinead and Daniel will discover her cancer is terminal during Wednesday night’s double bill of episodes.

Monday night will see Sinead confiding in Bethany (Lucy Fallon) that she hasn’t cancelled the wedding and is planning to surprise Daniel – but as Beth (Lisa George) helps her do her hair she’s horrified to discover a lump on Sinead’s neck.

She takes Daniel to one side and breaks the bad news – with upcoming episodes seeing the characters receive the devastating diagnosis that the cancer has spread and Sinead has just a few months to live.
