Sinister nanny Jade Rowan (Lottie Henshall) will exit Coronation Street next year, Metro.co.uk can reveal – but not before causing a huge nightmare for Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine) and Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall) as they lose their children Hope and Ruby due to her manipulative actions.
Show boss Iain MacLeod has promised an explosive final chapter to the story, with a source telling Metro.co.uk: ‘This was a story which had a very definite beginning, middle and end – it’s not a case of the character of Jade being written out, the storyline arc was decided from the outset.
‘That said, there is no reason that the character can’t be revisited in the future, the audience has engaged well with the story and it won’t end in a way that fully closes the door on Jade completely.’
Lottie shared: ‘It was awesome to find out they were bringing John back from the dead. So yes, I found out I was going to be Hope’s half sister as soon as I got the job. I’ve had to keep it in since June/July time but we managed to do it, which was great. The response was amazing, great, very overwhelming but I was prepared for it.’
As for the drama ahead, she continued: ‘Jade’s intention is just to keep Hope safe, she genuinely thinks that Fiz is a bad person, she has been brainwashed into thinking that. So her priority is Hope, and looking after Hope, so she’ll go to any lengths to make sure that Hope is okay.’
Viewers will be horrified – as will Fiz and Tyrone – when social services take the children into social care and Jade puts herself forward as Hope’s blood relative to get residency. But how far will she manage to destroy the family before she goes?
