Laura Neelan will meet an emotional end in Coronation Street, confirmed actress Kel Allen, who has already filmed her final scenes for the show.

The character left viewers stunned on Friday (March 25), when she took the rap for Rick’s (Greg Wood) murder, in a bid to protect daughter Kelly (Millie Gibson) from the truth.

After her private investigator failed to turn up any leads into Rick’s disappearance, Gary Windass (Mikey North) confirmed to Laura that he murdered Rick and covered up the crime.

Laura’s reaction to the news was one of shock, but ultimately she came to realize that he was merely acting in self defense.

‘Rick was a bad person and she knows that more than anyone,’ Kel told ‘She never agreed with the lifestyle that he lived.

‘That’s why they split in the first place. She didn’t want that. Now she has the chance to leave a legacy for her daughter di lei and know that she is with a man who is more decent than her father di lei was. ‘

Laura therefore made a huge sacrifice, handing herself into the police, claiming that she killed Rick – doing so so that Kelly continue to live with Gary, who is now officially off the hook.

‘I think personally all she’s thought is about Kelly’s future and she’s not considered herself in it,’ explained Kel.

Laura, however, will have to work extra hard in order to make the police believe that she murdered Rick, given that Gary is their prime suspect.

‘At the forefront her mind is her confession and making sure that Kelly’s secure so she is determined to do this right,’ admits the soap star. ‘Lei She has got all the information she needs from Gary about the murder to be able to repeat it and make them believe she did it.

‘She even knows where the body is buried and how he died. It is harder than she thought because the police are sure she is lying as they have had their eye on Gary for this for some time and just needed the proof but here is this woman who knows all the detail and wants to take the rap. ‘

Time, however, is running out for Laura, who is terminally ill, and Kel has told us that she’s already filmed her final scenes for the ITV soap, confirming that her character will ultimately die.

‘Oh my god, it’s emotional,’ she said. ‘I get emotional and start filling up just thinking about it. What a way to go.

‘When they asked me to come back for this final storyline I couldn’t believe it, it was too good to turn down. As an actor, to get your teeth stuck into something so heartbreaking, dramatic and even with humor thrown in is just incredible.

‘It’s been three years in the running and people have been desperate for the truth to come out but I don’t think they were expecting that twist. Because of that twist, the death scenes when they come are even more emotionally charged. ‘

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV.
