Kym Marsh has revealed that Michelle Connor will have a smashing time ahead of her post Christmas exit from Coronation Street – as she smashes up the bistro after discovering that the mystery buyer is Ray.
As part of her revenge against Robert Preston (Tristan Gemmill), Michelle ensured that she had ownership of the eatery but after she accepts an offer from a mystery bidder, she is horrified to come face to face with with the new proprietor.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Kym said: ‘She’s furious about that. Of all the people to buy the bistro, it’s him, the slimeball! He’s the last person that she was expecting. She doesn’t take the news very well and contemplates trying to change things but it’s too late. He’s the last person she’d want to sell the bistro to.
‘I’m just going to smash the place up! She knocks everything off, throws things and smashes the place up. For her it’s everything mounting up. The events of Christmas Day, and everything afterwards. she doesn’t even think it’s that much about Ray as everything else is going on. She’s in a bad place at that point.’
Confirming the exit date as Wednesday 27 December, Kym admitted that it had yet to hit her that she had left but filming the last take was a special and emotional moment.
She recalled: ‘It was really emotional and very weird. The week or so leading up to it that was the worst. It was good as I had to film loads of emotional stuff so crying was not a problem. I was crying on tap! My last day was really emotional. My final scene was in the Rovers with the Connors but it was out of sequence as Michelle leaves in a taxi.
‘There were speeches and gifts. I was really quite overwhelmed. I had a great party the week before as no-one knew when I was going to leave. So I booked the party and was really overwhelmed by how many people came, with lots of crew too. They work so hard and it was lovely that they were there along with the cast. The last day was nice and emotional. But I have not stopped since I left.
‘I don’t feel like it’s happened. I think because I’m busy at the moment it’s not hit me yet. I think it will hit me in the new year, and also because I’m still on screen, it’s not fully over.’
