Speaking at the British Soap Awards in May, Faye opened up about her decision to leave the long-running soap.
She told The Sun: 'It's the end of my contract. It’s come to an end. I want to go out on a high.'
Faye's comments come after the popular soap's mass cast exodus, which has seen the exit of seven cast members in just three months.
Among those still to leave are Lucy Fallon (who plays Bethany Platt), Katie McGlynn (Sinead Tinker), Kym Marsh (Michelle Connor) and Tristan Gemmill (Robert Preston).

However, Faye has revealed this may not be the end for Kate and she’s happy ITV bosses have left the door open.
She said: 'I've had a lot of storylines to be fair. I’ve loved my four years. I’m really grateful to Corrie to leave it open ended because it means I can come back.'
Faye joined the hit ITV soap in 2015 as the sister of late Aidan Connor, played by Shayne Ward, and half-sister of Carla Connor, played by Alison King.
Her character recently lost the love of her life on their wedding day and it’s only now been revealed who is to blame for Rana’s death.
An ITV representative confirmed Faye's departure to MailOnline in April, saying: 'Faye is a very talented actress who has put her all into the portrayal of Kate Connor for the past three and a half years, we wish her every success for the future.
'She will be on screen until early Autumn and the door will be left open.'
