Now, Sean has revealed how he feels about leaving ‘Corrie’, admitting that he’s "gutted" to be leaving Weatherfield behind.

In a interview shared by ITV, Sean explains how he found out Callum would be killed off, stating: “I got called up to a meeting with Stuart Blackburn, the producer. I thought I was in trouble!

“Then as soon as I walked into the room Stuart looked at me and said, 'I'm going to tell you straight away ­I'm going to kill him!' I was excited.

“Initially I didn't feel that upset. Just before the meeting I had started to think that they were maybe going to try and turn Callum good, and I really didn't want that because he's not got it in him to be good!"

MORE 'CORRIE':

“It's bittersweet,” he continues. “I'm going to be gutted to leave ‘Corrie’, but at the same time it's completely right for the character and as an actor that's the goal, that's what makes me happy.

#CorrieLive has been labelled a success by viewers, and Tina O’Brien won praise for her portrayal of Sarah Platt.

It wasn’t just about her on-screen family’s drama though, and there was plenty of action for the other residents of Weatherfield, including Sally and Tim, and Roy Cropper.

The coming episodes will see the Platt family struggle to decide what to do next, after moving Callum’s body to their basement.
