Verity Rushworth is to make her final appearance as Donna Windsor in a tense double bill that will air this evening (7.00, 8.00pm, ITV). Viewers can expect plenty of twists and turns as Donna’s final criminal job ends with her making the ultimate sacrifice.
Her character has had two separate stints in the long-running ITV rural soap – and is leaving for the second time.
In her final scenes, Donna heads off for a final showdown with the villainous Gary North (Fergus O’Donnell) but her plans to see him jailed go horribly incorrect, devastating her friends and family in the village.
It is the finale of a plot that has seen the terminally-ill control officer go off the rails in a bid to secure her young daughter’s prospect.
Rushworth, who first appeared on screen in 1998, left the soap in 2009 before rejoining the cast earlier this year.
She has also appeared on the boards and made her West End debut in the musical Hairspray.
Speaking about leaving the show, Verity told Digital Spy: “Without giving away whatever thing too point, you can expect a fantastic shock. A stunt, lots of drama, lots of heartache, lots of tragedy.
“It’s a completely uncommon end for Donna, which I don’t reckon people will realise. And, just, lots of hurt and intensity. Tears and drama. Quite epic and a fantastic twist. Watch out for the twist!”
