Patti has played Mary on the soap for the last ten years and has recently been involved in dramatic scenes with her secret son Jude (Paddy Wallace), who is a compulsive and manipulative liar.
Show boss Iain MacLeod recently told The Sun Online about the upcoming drama and teased that the aftermath will be even more dramatic than the accident itself.
He explained: “The scenes themselves are heartbreaking. The death is very well written. There won’t be a dry eye in the house, but the bit I’m more interested in is the aftermath and the revealing of secrets.
“It will at first appear to be an accident, but will then be revealed to be a mystery and it’ll have been some kind of criminal enterprise that causes it all to fall down.”
