Kimberly Hart-Simpson has left ‘Coronation Street’ again.
The 35-year-old actress reprised her role of former sex worker Nicky Wheatley, who played havoc with Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) and Daisy Midgley (Charlotte Jordan) in 2020, this year but has now confirmed that her most recent story arc has finished and she has once again departed the cobbles.
Replying to fans on Instagram, she wrote: "Okkkk, let's get this answered because it's heavy in the inbox. So it's not a case of leaving Corrie. It's more that I came back for a storyline which, for now, has been completed.
"If you watched Friday's eps you will see there was no big leaving scene, so you never know for the future, but what I do know is this… I owe so much to Corrie, and I absolutely love it there — the people — the vibe — the street.
"Life happens in chapters — and I am looking forward to the next part."
An ITV spokesperson confirmed to Digital Spy that Kimberly has left the soap again but added: "that's not to say we might not see her pop up in Weatherfield again in the future".
Kimberly previously revealed she manifested her return to 'Coronation Street'.
She told the Daily Star newspaper's Hot TV column: “I like vision boards and on the day that I got the call for 'Corrie', I had made a vision board including the 10 things that I wanted in my life at that time - and 'Corrie' went back on there. Within two hours, I got the call to ask if I wanted to go back.”
The 'Mount Pleasant’ star first teased her return to the cobbles in December, writing on Instagram: "She’s back! @coronationstreet 2022!!! (sic)”
She added: "Return of the side-eye."
