Multiple sources have confirmed popular soap actress Michelle Stafford is leaving General Hospital to return to The Young and The Restless. Stafford will be reprising the role of Phyllis Summers, currently being played by Gina Tognoni since 2014.
Sources reveal Tognoni has been let go at Y&R.
Michelle's contract negotiations at GH went down to the wire and they couldn't make a deal, explains one insider.
CBS Daytime allegedly jumped at the chance to lure Stafford, who like Tognoni is a Daytime Emmy winner, back to the fold.
No word on what GH plans to do with the character of Nina Cassadine, which Stafford has portrayed since 2014.
