Corrie's Ellie Leach celebrates birthday in glam party with co-stars

Coronation Street star Ellie Leach has just celebrated her 21st birthday with a very glamourous party.

Ellie – who plays Faye Windass in the ITV soap – spent the big day with a variety of her friends and family, including some Corrie co-stars.

Posting on her Instagram, Ellie shared a picture in front of a huge 21 with silver and gold balloons.

Tagging the people that helped organise her party, Ellie wrote ‘thank you to everyone who made my night so special’.

Among the stars wishing her a happy birthday was Alexandra Mardell, who recently filmed her final scenes as Emma Brooker.

Alexandra shared a behind the scenes snap of her and Ellie on her Instagram stories and said ‘Gorj! HBD’, on Ellie’s party post.

Lucy Fallon (Bethany Platt) and Mollie Gallagher (Nina Lucas) also wished Ellie a happy birthday.

Ellie also shared a variety of pictures from Brooke Vincent, who played Sophie Webster in the ITV soap and is also her cousin.

At the start of March, it was revealed Ellie had signed a new contract at Corrie, meaning she will play Faye Windass for at least another year.

A source told The Sun: ‘Ellie is a huge talent and bosses are delighted she’s signed a new contract.

‘She’s really proved herself time and time again, most recently after the accident which caused Ted’s death. There’s lots more to come from her and some exciting storylines ahead.’

Ellie hasn’t been back on the cobbles for long, as she took a 6 month break while Faye was in prison for attacking Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson).

Faye hit Adam over the head, thinking he was Ray Crosby (Mark Frost) – the evil businessman who sexually assaulted her and nearly demolished half of Weatherfield for his new development.
