Coronation Street's Krissi Bohn is to be axed from the soap this summer to make way for the introduction of new characters

'Coronation Street' star Krissi Bohn will leave the soap this summer.

The 31-year-old actress has played taxi-driver Lloyd Mullaney's (Craig Charles) daughter Jenna Kamara since joining the soap two years ago, but ITV bosses have now decided to axe her character as they've run out of ideas for storylines for her.

Speaking about her disappointment at being written out of the programme, she told The Sun newspaper: "I have enjoyed every single moment of my time on the street.

"Although I am disappointed not to have my contract renewed I am thankful for all the experience I've gained and look forward to whatever the future may hold."

Krissi - whose only other television role was an appearance in 'Law and Order: UK' in 2010 - enjoyed a number of storylines, including a lesbian relationship with Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent) and trying to protect her father Lloyd from his new girlfriend Andrea (Hayley Tamaddon), during her time as Jenna.

'Coronation Street' boss Stuart Blackburn said: "Krissi has played a key role in some fantastic stories."

Krissi's departure will come as the soap prepares to welcome Kal Nazir's (Jimi Mistry) mother Yasmeen and her teenage son Zeedan to the famous cobbles this summer.
