Sol Heras quits Coronation StreetCoronation Street actor Sol Heras has quit the soap just a year after joining. 

Sol, who plays heartbreaker Ryan Connor, joined the cobbles in 2012 as Kym Lomas’ onscreen son. He’s now preparing to film his final scenes which will be shown on ITV later this summer.

Viewers will see Ryan leaving the soap when he is offered a job as a DJ in Ibiza after being dumped by on-screen girlfriend Katy.

Sol, 26, has admitted that he’ll miss his on screen mum Kym the most saying: ‘Kym is one of my best friends on the show. She took me under her wing and we’ve become best friends. She’s ace, we talk all the time. And with Ryan being Michelle’s son there’s a chance he could come back.’

Ryan has recently been at the centre of a story line involving him stealing popular character Chesney’s girlfriend, something that has been met with mixed opinions by the public. Sol said: ‘Guys congratulate me on having a gorgeous girlfriend but other people moan and say I should leave her alone.’

He also added: ‘I was on a golf course recently and the lady behind the bar refused to serve me. She said ‘You’re an a******e. I can’t serve you’. She said what I’d done to Chesney and Katy was awful. But as an actor that’s the kind of reaction you want and I’ve been lucky to have so many different storylines.’
