Coronation Street's Vicky Binns says she doesn't care if her character Molly Dobbs is killed off. The 27-year-old actress is set to leave Coronation Street this year, but insisted to Soaplife magazine she doesn't care if the door is not left open for her after five years working on the soap. Vicky admitted: "I don't care if Molly lives or dies, I just want to do justice to what's been a brilliant storyline. "I won't mind if the door isn't left open for me. I've done 10 years of soap - five on Emmerdale as Ollie Reynolds and five on Corrie." After acting in two soaps already, Vicky revealed she's happy to try her hand at another. "I've been Ollie and Molly - so perhaps I could be Dolly in EastEnders! I'd never say never. "After Emmerdale I had a two-year gap where I did TV dramas and theatre. I really enjoyed it and I'd like to do some more. I'd like to do film, too. It's strange though, because I never in a million years thought I'd ever do another soap after Emmerdale."
