The stunning star was killed off in Corrie, dying in the arms of her fiancé Kate, played by Faye Brookes, after the devastating factory collapse in 2019.

Bhavna told writers it was the “only fitting end” for her.

Corrie suffered a huge backlash at the time of Bhavna's exit from viewers who said Rana's death was the latest in the long run of LGBT+ couples to have been left in tatters by traumatic events.

Defending the decision to The Sun, Bhavna said: "When I told Kate Oates and Iain McLeod that I wanted to leave the show to try other things, it was my decision and my choice for Rana to die because it was the only fitting end to the character.
