She wrote: ‘Can I just say – thank you for all the love and support I’ve received after raising awareness about my sexuality on my socials. I really didn’t expect it and it means the absolute world, you guys are amazing. I love you all.’

Matilda also revealed that she was leaving the cobblestones so she could try other projects, admitting that “Corrie” was “pretty limited” as she couldn’t work on other programs due to her contract.

She wrote: ‘To be able to work on other shows, movies and projects because when you work at Corrie you have a contract meaning you can’t work on anything else while you’re there – so it was pretty restrictive (sic) ‘

Corrie announced last October that Harriet Bibby had joined the soap as Summer after Matilda left Weatherfield.

Matilda said at the time: “I want to thank my second family, the cast, crew and viewers who have supported me during my time on the cobblestones.

“After three and a half wonderful years, I felt it was time for a change and I’m excited to start that next chapter with a new role.”
