Coronation Street is to kill off Georgia May Foote’s character Katy Armstrong in an off screen death, leading to Chesney Brown heading out to Portugal in order to bring home his son Joseph. 

Previous spoilers had revealed that Izzy would get a call from her dad Owen with bad news that would lead to Chesney heading abroad – a move which sees Sinead Tinker view him in a new light and decide that he is the man for her.

Owen is calling to inform Izzy that her sister has been killed in a terrible accident and this leads to Chesney bringing Joseph home. Pictures had already been released showing Chesney’s unease at seeing Daniel Osbourne spending time with Sinead and Joseph in scenes that will air in coming weeks.

Georgia played Katy for five years before leaving in 2015. Her storylines included giving birth at Christmas to baby Joseph and an affair with Ryan Connor which divided her from Chesney.

Coronation Street will air these scenes next week.
