Coronation Street actress Anne Kirkbride, who played Deirdre Barlow in the soap, has died after a short illness.

A statement on the soap's website said the cast and crew are "heartbroken".

The actress was part of the ITV soap for 44 years.

"There are no words to describe the sense of grief we feel at Anne's passing," said Executive Producer Kieran Roberts.

"We know only too acutely how much Anne meant to the millions of people who watched her create the legendary character of Deirdre Barlow.

"She will be greatly missed by the Coronation Street team who share happy memories of working with her.

"We feel blessed and honoured to have known her. Our thoughts are with David and their family."
