The on-screen couple had been through plenty of tough times on the cobbles but Bhavna says none were so difficult to film as her final scenes.
Speaking on the show’s official Twitter account, she said: “The hardest thing was telling Faye. I felt like I was breaking up with her. I had to pull her aside and say ‘Fay, I’ve got something to tell you’.
“When I told the producer I wanted to leave, I felt and I made a clear choice. The only way Rana could leave Kate was to be killed off. My reasons for that were Kate and Rana fought so hard to be together.
“I don’t believe Rana would have had a change of heart and hopped in a cab.”
Fans of the soap were left in tears last night after Kate’s heartbreaking letter to Rana was revealed.
Rana died on her wedding day after the shocking factory collapse last week.
And now the Corrie Instagram account has revealed the note Kate wrote to Rana as she prepared to attend her funeral.

It said: “Rana,⠀I hate that I have to write this letter.
“It’s not fair that I can’t say these things to you everyday.
“I wish I’d said them more when I could. Losing Aidan was like losing a limb, but losing you feels like my heart’s been ripped out.
“I wonder if it’ll ever beat the same again. I love you so much.⠀
“We were going to grow old together, have kids we could embarrass and grandkids we could spoil rotten.
“We were going to have it all, and now I have nothing. Our time together wasn’t long enough but it meant everything to me.⠀
“Thank you for loving me.⠀I’ll never forget you, or stop loving you.⠀
