A Coronation Street star who has spent over a decade on The Cobbles has hinted at leaving the soap to pursue new roles on shows like Call The Midwife.

Lisa George, who plays Beth Tinker on the Manchester-based programme, revealed that she is yet to hear if her contract will be renewed for 2024, adding that she would love to explore new parts.

The star first joined the soap all the way back in 2011.

Corrie star Lisa George hints at show exit and interest in new roles 

Lisa has been involved in a great number of stories on ITV show Coronation Street, seeing her character Beth struggle with feelings for her ex while being married to Kirk Sutherland.

However, she could look towards new shows like Call The Midwife in the near future.

Speaking of her future, she said: "I’m really ­interested in the war stuff because my grandad talked about the war all the time. So I’d love to do a 1940s drama. Or something set in the 60s would be amazing."

She went on to specify shows she would be interested in, adding: "I would love to do Call The Midwife. And I watched Ten Pound Poms and loved it. A role in something like that would be amazing.

"I’d love to do something like that. I like my vintage dramas and stuff like that, maybe a 1940s drama, more like war stuff."

The actress is still "waiting to hear" if she will get a contract renewal. This comes amid the backstop of other popular names leaving the show including Todd Boyce, who played Stephen Reid.
