The post comes just days after Katie revealed she'll be moving to Los Angeles to try and make it in Hollywood after quitting the soap.

Katie joined Corrie as Sinead back in 2013 – but left back last October, with her character losing her battle with cervical cancer in an emotional plot.

The Manchester native became emotional as she accepted her NTAs win on Tuesday night.

Her heartfelt speech saw her thank Corrie co-workers as well as her late grandfather for their support.

Katie told the audience: "I am shocked I even got nominated for this award.

"Thanks everyone who voted for the storyline. Thanks to Corrie and Iain MacLeod.
