In August, Brooke headed off on maternity leave, with her Corrie character Sophie being written out temporarily to go travelling. The star spoke about her emotional departure from the soap on Instagram and opened up about her excitement at becoming a first-time mum. She wrote: "I can't believe 15 years ago I came onto the street to play 'Sophie Webster' and today I left to play my biggest role yet, 'Mummy'. My amazing family at Coronation Street I am going to miss you all so much. Thank you for always looking after me, for keeping me on the straight and narrow and for letting me get away with murder over the years."
