Jacob departed the cobbles in a taxi after breaking Amy’s heart and the actor who plays him, Jack, penned a message to fans on social media.
The actor tweeted: “That’s all folks! Jacob Hay over and out.
“I can’t believe a two-month job on the cobbles turned into a two-year Weatherfield residency.
“Getting to work on a show I was brought up on and to follow in the footsteps of true legends has been an absolute privilege.”
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV.
