Another fan favourite leaving Coronation Street and set to exit in December this year.It is believed that Terence Maynard – who has been playing the role of dodgy builder Tony Stewart since 2014 – wants to pursue new projects away from the ITV soap.
Show bosses are planning a big story for both Tony and Liz that involves the running of the Rovers Return – a plotline which will eventually lead to Maynard’s departure from Corrie.
Maynard’s exit comes following the recent announcement that Ryan Thomas, who plays Tony’s screen son Jason, will be leaving in the new year.
During his time in Weatherfield, double dealing Tony has been seen cheating on Liz with Tracy Barlow and stealing the Rovers away from the McDonalds.
In last month’s live episode, viewers saw him and Todd Grimshaw make off with Callum Logan’s car on the night the drug dealer was bludgeoned to death by Kylie Platt. So will Tony now be caught up in the Platts’ efforts to keep the killing of Callum hushed up?
