Spoilers for Coronation Street are here.

Millie Gibson, a cast member of Coronation Street, has made a hugely unexpected comeback as Kelly Neelan.

Kelly deciding she needed to start over away from Weatherfield after surviving a kidnapping and murder attempt came to a head in Friday's (September 23) episode.

Since discovering that her guardian was murdered a few years ago, Kelly had been haunted by her father Rick Neelan's ghost. Gary Windass is now a member of the Windass family.

Kelly hired Kieron, her father's former henchman, to murder Gary, but she realised that he abducted her and planned to kill her.

Gary desperately attempted to track down Kieron before he could harm Kelly on Friday's episode (September 23) but Aadi was able to help him and they went off tracking Kieron.

Kieron had taken Kelly to an old mill where he revealed his intention to frame her for Gary's murder and then kill her to make it appear like a murder-suicide plot.

Gary and Aadi saw Kieron's van and then saw Kelly on the mill's roof. Just when Kieron went to shove Kelly off the roof, Gary ran onto the scene, begging to take her place.

A gunshot went off in a flashbang of action, and it was revealed that Aadi had been badly wounded. Kieron fled the scene as ambulances arrived to treat Aadi.

Gary told Dev that someone Rick owed money to had gone after Kelly, and Aadi had been shot while trying to protect her.

Aadi stablised and found Kelly at his bedside, but she tearfully handed him back his engagement ring and informed him that the engagement has been canceled because she's too "toxic" for him.

Kelly then went home to pack things so she could leave the street. Gary urged her to pay attention to his side of the story, explaining why he'd killed Rick so long ago.

Kelly told Gary that she would not report her father to the police unless she could. If she did, she would never be able to forgive what he'd done.

While Gary fell into Maria's arms, Kelly set off to start her new life.

Millie Gibson's three-year stint on the cobbles comes to an end with a riveting hour that explores topics such as homelessness, gang violence, and drug use.

Coronation Street airs on ITV Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 8pm, and it also streams on the ITV Hub.
