    Can't say I will miss her, she's turned into such a miserable character over the years.










    Coronation Street actress Debbie Rush has quit the soap after playing Anna Windass for nine years.

    Speaking to The Sun , she said: "I’ve had an amazing nine years and the decision to leave was not made lightly.


    “I love playing Anna and will miss working with the fantastic cast and crew.

    “I don’t know what the future holds but I am excited to explore what other acting opportunities are out there."

    Debbie won't be leaving too soon however, as she confessed she's still going to be on our screens up until 2018.

    She continued: "I am very grateful for all the brilliant storylines I have been given during my time on Coronation Street and am very much looking forward to what is in store for Anna in the run up to my departure next year.”

    And, apparently, Debbie gave Corrie producers a lot of notice so they can think of a great ending for the much-loved soap character.

    A source said: “Debbie decided she wanted a new challenge.

    "So when it came to signing her new one-year deal she told show boss Kate Oates — and Kieran Roberts, the show’s exec producer — she would be leaving once that was up.

    Eddie and Anna was a brilliant pairing in my view. They were a dead beat family when they came to the Street having refused to pay Joe MacIntyre for a kitchen he installed. Eddie was a great character in my view but I believe he fell out with the producers . Not sure of the detail but his departure was quite sudden.

    Adam was a lad.
    I think sometimes if your face doesn't fit that is it especially with an establishment like Coronation Street, i imagine it is very clicky.

    Eddie made me feel sick lol I couldn't eat when he was on screen. He was disgusting - farting smoking, yuck :eek:

    Anna has been through a lot I guess so I'm sure it isn't easy to stay happy all the time. The actress who plays her is only 40 but recently had to portray the character's 50th birthday - eek!

    Re Eddie. I don't recall him farting or smoking even (no smoking on TV these days) but he did "make exceedingly good cakes" .

    It's funny you remember him baking but not the smoking. I remember the two always going hand in hand and one specific time where he had a cigarette in his mouth (whilst cooking) and the ash fell onto the food. He just brushed it away.


    I was trying to find images but this was the best I could do.

    I think that's what made me feel so sick. Smoking while cooking. Actual VOM.

    lol

    That aside, I really loved the character. I hate that background fighting comes at a cost of viewers missing out on a great character.

    During my dinner too @LouiseP !

    I hate Leanne - as if you would point at Liz like that and blame her for her grandsons cough. Hate the character.

    Where's @Mo Mouse ?

    Getting bored now with Eva and her revenge, i would just rather her punch Marie in the face and get a bic razor and shave Maria's moustache.
