Katherine Kelly goes from Coronation Street to the National Theatre

Departing Corrie star Katherine Kelly has landed her first post-Weatherfield role in the National Theatre’s production of She Stoops To Conquer. Katherine has played loose cannon Becky McDonald for the past 5 years but will leave the soap at the end of the year and will then be playing the lead in the West End production of Oliver Goldsmith’s classic comedy.

An insider at Corrie said: ‘She is such a lovely girl who is going to be sorely missed.’ It may not be the last time we see Becky on the street, though as Katherine recently revealed that she specifically asked that her character not be killed off.
