Sylvia Coronation StreetThe Sun reports that Stephanie Cole has left Coronation Street.

The 71-year-old actress has played the role of Roy Cropper’s (David Neilson) formidable mother Sylva Goodwin in the soap since April 2011.

The character soon became a fan favourite thanks to her quick-fire putdowns.

The newspaper reports that Sylvia’s exit will be linked to daughter-in-law Hayley’s (Julie Hesmondhalgh) on-going pancreatic cancer storyline.

Cole has already filmed her final scenes for the soap to air later this year.

A spokesperson confirmed on Twitter that the actress has left Weatherfield “for the time being”.
