Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street cast member Millie Gibson has made a hugely dramatic exit as Kelly Neelan.

A week-long revenge plot came to a head in Friday’s (September 23) episode, when Kelly decided she had to start afresh away from Weatherfield, after surviving a kidnapping and murder attempt.

Kelly had been haunted by the ghost of her father Rick Neelan ever since she discovered he was murdered several years ago by her guardian Gary Windass.

Kelly hired her father’s former henchman Kieron to murder Gary, but when she changed her mind, he abducted her and planned to kill her too.

Friday’s episode (September 23) was a race against time as Gary desperately tried to find Kieron before he could hurt Kelly. He managed to get Aadi to help him and they went off and tracked down Kieron.

Kieron had taken Kelly to an old mill, where he revealed his idea to frame her for Gary’s murder and then kill her to make it look like a murder-suicide plot.

In the distance Gary and Aadi could see Kieron’s van and saw Kelly on the roof of the mill. Just as Kieron went to push Kelly off the roof, Gary burst onto the stage and asked to take her place.

In a flurry of action, a shot was fired and it was revealed that Aadi had been wounded. Kieron fled the scene as ambulances arrived to rush Aadi for treatment.

Gary spun a story to Dev, explaining that someone Rick owed money to had gone after Kelly, and Aadi had been shot trying to protect her.

Fortunately, Aadi steadied herself and found Kelly at his bedside, but she tearfully gave him back the ring and told him the engagement was off because she’s too “toxic” for him.

Kelly then went home to pack so she could leave the street. Gary asked her to listen to his side of the story as he explained why he had killed Rick all those years ago.

After hearing about all the horrible things her father had done, Kelly told Gary that although she would not report him to the police, she would never be able to forgive what he had done.
