Coronation Street's Alina actress Ruxandra Porojnicu announces she's leaving the soap

Ruxandra Porojnicu has confirmed her exit from Coronation Street on Twitter as her character Alina Pop prepares to leave Weatherfield.

The 28-year-old actress made her debut as Alina Pop on the ITV soap back in 2019 as part of a human trafficking storyline.

Alina went on to have a romance with Seb Franklin and develop a friendship with Emma Booker, before more recently being caught in a dramatic love triangle with Tyrone Hobbs and his long-term partner Fiz Stape.

Things took a dramatic turn in Wednesday’s episodes as Alina ended their relationship after discovering Tyrone still had feelings for ex Fiz and kept secrets from her.

The pregnant Alina then announced she was leaving for her native Romania to raise hers and Tyrone’s child alone.

Ruxandra has now confirmed on Twitter that her time in the cobbles is over.

Sharing an image of herself with Tyrone actor Alan Halsall, Ruxandra penned: “And that’s a wrap on Corrie!
