CORONATION Street star Vanessa Hehir has gone back to her job as a professional photographer just days after revealing she has quit the soap. The 41-year-old, who also starred in Waterloo Road, played church goer Esther Hargrave on the Cobbles since September.
On Saturday she confirmed that she had left the role, and today gave her Instagram followers an insight into her normal day job when she revealed she is currently focusing on the photography portrait company she runs. Sharing a snap of her holding her camera, Vanessa admitted it was good to be back behind the camera for a change.
Captioning the photo, the actress wrote: “Lovely to be back behind the camera! Busy week shooting.” Vanessa then added the link to the account for her photography company named Vanessa Valentine Photography.
