Coronation Street's Hayley Cropper get's some heartbreaking news next week as in the soap she will be diagnosed with terminal cancer!
Julie Hesmondhalgh, 43, announced at the start of this year that she will be leaving the soap that she has been in for 15 years now and she has had some massive story lines including soaps first ever transgender story line.
Next week Hayley will find out that she has the cancer and tell her husband Roy Cropper that there is nothing that can do for her.
The sad scenes are set to air on the 22nd of July when Hayley goes to see her doctor after a routine medical shows up abnormalities,
Julie has recently spoke about when she first read the scrip:
'I do remember reading the scripts for the first time and being inconsolable.
'Every single page, I was heartbroken because it's a really strange thing. She's not me, but she's a massive part of me. She's been a huge part of my life for over 15 years.'
'I do feel really honoured to be given the opportunity to play this storyline because cancer in general is something that affects everybody.
Hayley's issues of being a transgender was a great opportunity to bring an unusual issue into people's living rooms and to teach them about something that was new to many.
'This is a chance to go through something that has touched pretty much everybody in one way or another. It's universal, it's about someone you care about and it's about how they're just muddling through.
'They have their highs and lows, but it's not without its comedy. There are moments where it is heartbreaking, but it's not all weepy. For the most part it's just Roy and Hayley dealing with it in a very Roy and Hayley way.'
But if you think it's all going to be doom and gloom it's not as show bosses have said that there is going to be lots of laughter and comedy over the next year.
ITV have worked with Pancreatic Cancer UK on the storyline to make sure they get the story as right as possib
