Amy Kelly, who plays Maddie Heath in Coronation Street, is leaving the show, as we already know.
Amy has now been cast in a new ITV show called Jericho. It's an 8 part drama series set in the Yorkshire Dales in the 1870s, Described as rough, rustic yet with a wild west carnival atmosphere, Jericho is a community of pioneers, settlers and outcasts and people with secrets to hide.
Amy will play the role of Martha. The show will go into production later this month in North Yorkshire.
