“I think it’s been a brilliant story and the fact that it has involved so many people on the street and that we are a community looking for this man.”

Sally highlighted how Stephen has managed to get himself involved with a range of people in Weatherfield from the Platt family, Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthew), her own character and her husband Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine).

She continued: “He’s got himself involved in everyone’s stories, which is wonderful to be a part of.

“I love those collaborating stories when we all come together.

“They’re the best stories for me when the whole street is involved in one thing, so this has been so much fun to be involved in!”

During the episode on Friday, fans were on edge as they saw Jenny’s life up in the air as Stephen made one last bid to escape.

Threatening her life with a broken bottle, he met a deadly end when Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) ran him down.

Speaking about Stephen’s exit, Sally added: “He’s a really lovely, lovely man to talk to about absolutely anything and he’ll be really missed.

“He’s been a lovely part of the cast, you know when you get an actor like that, that joins the cast it’s really sad when they leave.

“You get this relationship with them but I think he’ll just go on to do wonderful things because I think he’s fabulous.”
