Coronation Street star Charlie De Melo has reportedly quit the ITV soap after five years.
The actor has played lawyer Imran Habeeb on the cobbles since 2017, but The Sun reports the actor has now quit his role.
A source said: “Charlie’s loved his time on the soap but the time is right to try new things.
“He’s hugely talented and very ambitious and wants to see what else is out there.He will always cherish his time in Weatherfield but for now it’s goodbye.”
When he's not on our screens, Charlie likes to hang out with his adorable dogs at his home and he shares a peek with his 60,000 Instagram followers.
The Imran Habeeb actor has two golden retrievers Toni and Sarah and they've been known to have litters of puppies.
And there's plenty of space for the dogs to play at Charlie's home, with the star boasting a large patio area and a bench.
There are also potted plants dotted about the space.
Inside, the home is snug and boasts a large living room with a grey two-seater sofa taking centre stage.
At Christmas the actor shared a photo of a very snug scene as one of his dogs relaxed by the roaring fireplace inside the home.
In the corner of the room stood a very impressive Christmas tree with presents beneath it.
The home also has exposed brick walls and a flat screen TV – we're not surprised the dogs look so content.

The kitchen is a stylish spot with beautifully patterned tiles and a blue Aga too.
It’s reported that Charlie will film his final scenes in the coming months, with his exit due to air later this year.
OK! has contacted ITV for comment.
In recent weeks, Imran was seen proposing to Toyah Battersby to give them a better chance of adopting their foster daughter Elsie.
During Seb Franklin’s murder trial Imran confessed to sleeping with someone, and their relationship has been undeniably rocky as a result.
Toyah is still unaware that it was Abi Franklin that bedded Imran, but viewers do.
And Abi will soon be left with a tricky decision that could have a direct effect on how Imran spends his last few months on the show.
