I was looking at Twitter this morning and I noticed it is Katherine Kelly‘s final episode on Coronation Street tonight.

I can’t quite believe it is six years since Katherine landed the role of Becky McDonald, the feisty barmaid at the Rover’s Return, and one of the soap’s most popular characters.

Katherine is moving on from the cobbles of Corrie to the stage at the National Theatre starring as Miss Hardcastle in She Stoops to Conquer. The National describes the play as one of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English language, Oliver Goldsmith’s She Stoops to Conquer is a celebration of chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family.

You don’t have to wait long to rush down there as the show previews from tomorrow and you can buy tickets here.

If you can’t make it to the theatre, you will still get the chance to see the play as She Stoops to Conquer will be broadcast in cinemas across the UK and around the world on 29 March 2012 as part of the brilliant National Theatre Live programme.

And for all you Corrie fans Katherine’s episodes air tonight on ITV1 at 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
