Co-stars bid farewell to Corrie babe Rachel Leskovac

Coronation Street cast member Rachel Leskovac makes her way to The Ox pub in Manchester.

She’s throwing a bash at the venue to mark her departure from the show.

Rachel – who’s played ditzy hairdresser Natasha Blakeman on Coronation Street for two years – has invited a number of her showbiz mates to the party.

Ready to bid farewell to her friend, Samia Smith arrives in denim hot pants and a satin top.

The outfit shows off the pretty blonde actress’ sexy toned figure.

Samia’s followed by Julia Haworth and Julie Hesmondhalgh who seem ready to get the evening started.

The co-stars share a joke as they make their way inside the popular drinking spot.

Next to arrive for a night of fun with the Coronation Street cast is Vicky Binns who stops to peck pal Graham Hawley on the cheek.

Clutching a present for Rachel, Jane Danson heads to the bash with husband Robert Beck who she married in 2005.

Jane flaunts her flirty side by wearing a floral tunic over a pair of plain black trousers while Robert dresses down in a checked shirt and jeans.

And although she’s not been part of the Coronation Street cast for very long, Paula Lane makes an appearance.

Paula keeps her hair – and black ensemble – protect from the rain by huddling under a huge umbrella.

Coronation Street producer Phil Collinson also attends to say his goodbyes.

Other stars to stop by Rachel’s event include Debbie Rush, Jack P Shepherd and Katherine Kelly.
