Coronation Street actress Georgia May Foote is set to finish up on the show very soon – but that's not the only part of her life she'll be leaving behind. 

Georgia, who plays Katy Armstrong in the long-running soap, has also reportedly dumped her fiancé and long-term love John Sage. The pair have been together since their early teens and got engaged two years ago.

However according to The Sun, Georgia  broke the news to friends and cast members at her leaving do that she had said goodbye to John and was planning a move to the US to further her career. "She was telling everyone they'd split up and she was looking forward to a future acting career in America" said a source from the show.

"Everyone was very surprised because she has been very happy with him and never been interested in a showbiz lifestyle. But this will be a new start for her."

It was revealed last week that Katy Armstrong's departure from Weatherfield will be linked to her reunion with her estranged mother Linda, and that she will flee the cobbles for sunny Portugal.

Speaking on This Morning yesterday, Georgia said she was gutted to be leaving Coronation Street but that the time was right. "I’m a bit sad – obviously I’m going to miss loads of people, the crew, the production team, my cast mates and all that, but I’m ready…It’s been nearly five years now so it’s a long stint to do there and I’m excited.”

Sounds like there are lots of big changes ahead for the actress!
