Claire King signs up to another TV show

Claire King, who plays Erica Holroyd in Coronation Street, is leaving the show later this year. You can read more on that here.

And we can announce today that the actress has signed up to do another telly show.

Claire will be appearing in Channel 5’s hit show In Therapy in which she will talk about her hyster­ectomy and relationship battles.

A source told The Sun: “Now in her Fifties Claire is at a crossroads in her life and there’s plenty to reflect on – not only is she leaving the Corrie family which will bring a big life change but behind all the glitz and glamour of being famous, she’s also had plenty to deal with which hasn’t been easy.

“Caring for her elderly parents and being diagnosed with a lifelong painful illness in her 30s has made her face her own mortality from an early age.

“Claire has also had many low points in her life – she’s been depressed when work dried up when she hit 50 before having a facelift and she’s also facing a future without children of her own.

“When you’ve hit a certain age, you do naturally reflect on where you’ve been and where you’re going…doing In Therapy means she’s able to express all that she wants to say on issues she’s experienced first hand which she hopes will resonate with some of her fans too.”

Will be sad to see her go, they could've done so much more with her character. Always remember Claire in Bad Girls, now that was a part she could get her teeth into! Good luck Claire xx

I agree. She was wasted in Coronation Street. She came in as Liandz's friend but they are never together anymore. I think she and Liz would have made a great pair of landladies together. Maybe she could have invested in the Rovers.

They should have had Erica buy the Rovers!
