Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon, who played Bethany Platt, has landed a new acting job, which is her first since leaving the soap.
According to The Sun, she’ll appear in a play called Sour Hall alongside Dr Who star Pearl Mackie as a lesbian couple who are terrorised by a ghost.
The audio drama is described by writer Laura Kirwan-Ashman as “an immersive audio horror set and recorded on a Yorkshire farm about a lesbian couple haunted by a boggart, using binaural/360 sound! Coming early 2021.”
The play is also reported to feature Graeme Hawley. Graeme is also well known for his role in Corrie playing John Stape.
ED have contacted Lucy’s rep for comment.

Leaving Coronation Street
Lucy’s Corrie alter ego Bethany left Weatherfield in March earlier this year to move to London.
Meanwhile, Lucy decided to leave the show in order to try new things. However the coronavirus pandemic put TV productions to a stop.
Speaking to The Sun back in May, she said: “It was really difficult to make the decision to leave but I’d been there five years and it was all I’d ever known.
“I’d never done theatre or anything away from Corrie and after the grooming storyline where I’d won quite a few awards, which was amazing, I realised if I didn’t leave and try other things I might end up wondering ‘What if?’
I’d never done theatre or anything away from Corrie.
“But obviously COVID-19 has thrown it all up in the air now. As I left, work was starting to pick up and take off and now everything has stopped.”
You can see Lucy in Don’t Rock The Boat, which airs Monday, November 2 on ITV.
