Catherine Tyldesley is having fun ahead of her exit as Eva - check out Simon Gregson and Alan Halsall's deadpan expressions!

Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley, aka Eva Price, has released two sketches in which she bursts into “tears” when her co-stars ask her about how she feels about leaving!

In the first sketch, a wonderfully deadpan Simon Gregson (who plays Steve McDonald) – with his top off! – innocently asks Catherine about her upcoming exit from the show, prompting the actress to run out of the room hysterically in floods of tears!

Simon, who takes a bite of his banana, then rolls his eyes and mutters: “F****** actresses!”

In a newly released second sketch, it’s this time the turn of Alan Halsall, who plays Tyrone Dobbs, to ask Catherine how she feels about leaving Weatherfield as Eva, which again prompts hysterical sobbing.

Both sketches have been huge hits with fans, with one commenting: “Love these videos! Still sad that ur leaving!” Another wrote: “Can’t stop watching”. And one said: “OMG that’s Frickin hilarious”.

Catherine revealed that she was leaving Weatherfield at the end of last year, saying:  “Coronation Street has been a dream job for me which is why this was such a difficult decision to leave.

“Eva has been such fun to play over the last seven years, and who knows, one day she might storm the cobbles of Weatherfield again.

“In the meantime I’m excited about the future, new acting projects, and spending time with my family.”

Coronation Street continues on ITV.
