Corrie Actress Criticises Exit

Coronation Street actress Tupele Dorgu, who plays Kelly Crabtree in the Granada soap, has reportedly criticised her character’s exit from the soap.

Last night Coronation Street fans saw Underworld employee Kelly Crabtree fired for handing over confidential documents to Nick [Ben Price] that allowed him to buy into the factory at a cheaper price than Carla Connor [Alison King] would have liked. After being sacked Kelly later confronted her former colleagues in the Rovers Return ranting at them. It marked the last appearance on the soap by Tupele Dorgu who decided to quit Coronation Street earlier this year. However, according to The Sun the actress was hoping for a more dramatic exit.

“I would have liked my last scene to be more dramatic. When I chose to leave they said they were already so far along in storylines there was only so much they could do. Kelly wasn’t involved heavily with a lot of people so it was easier to do that.” – Tupele Dorgu quoted in The Sun

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the ITV soap which will celebrate it on-screen in November. There are rumours at to exactly how the soap.
