We sure do miss seeing her on screen and it seems that we're not the only ones, Kym Marsh (who plays Michelle Connor) has recently revealed that she misses her too. Even though Kym and Alison played sister-in-laws on screen, the duo are close friends outside of work and even shared a dressing room.

Kym recently told Now Magazine that it's different following Alison's exit: "On and off-screen Alison and I have a close relationship so it's very strange and I'm still adjusting."

She added: "I speak to her regularly and I miss her."
