Lucy Fallon fans gush about her beautiful mum as she shares sweet birthday pic

The Corrie star is very close to her family

Corrie fave Lucy Fallon often shares pics of her hanging out with her friends and family on social media - both are clearly very important to her.

She's delighted fans with a latest snapshot into her life away from the Street, posing with her lovely mum at her birthday celebrations.

Her followers rushed to wish her mother a wonderful special day, with many complimenting her on being  beautiful, just like her daughter.

The apple never falls far from the tree...

Just ahead of the weekend, Lucy thrilled fans after giving them a rare glimpse at her rather large leg tattoo while on holiday with her boyfriend.

The soap star went under the needle back in 2015 to have a distinctive skull design inked on her upper right thigh but usually keeps the tat hidden from view.

Posing on a swing over the dreamy crystal blue waters of the Caribbean (jealous!), the actress beamed for a snap posted to Instagram.

Wearing a bright yellow and black swimsuit, the soap star's large tattoo was clearly visible.

"I legit love your tattoo, not gonna lie," wrote one fan.

"Is that really a tattoo?" added another.

"OMG! Shame I'm not quite as photogenic," chimed in a third.

"Absolutely stunning shot," agreed a fourth.

Lucy's skull and roses tattoo was done back in January 2015 - much to her mum's dismay!

In an interview with The Express at the time, she admitted: "My mum hates it. I didn’t tell them but when I was back home I had an itch, so I pulled my tights down and my mum was like, ‘What is that?!'"

Oops! Bet that was a tad awkward...

Lucy, 21, also gave fans another brief glimpse at the usually hidden inking while posing on her hotel bed in a white T-shirt.

The soap star, best known as Bethany Platt on the cobbles, recently took a break from her character's harrowing sex grooming storyline to enjoy an idyllic Caribbean holiday with boyfriend Tom Leech.

They escaped the increasingly grey weather in England to soak up the sun in St Lucia and, of course, Lucy had to go and make us all jealous by sharing a slew of gorgeous photos to Instagram.

After a difficult day of sunbathing in paradise, swimming in clear waters and generally just having an amazing time, the actress soaked in a tub overlooking the coast.

What a hard life.

She also revealed the very gorgeous view from the couple's swanky hotel room, which had its own private balcony over the sea.

Trying so hard not to be jealous...

Lucy's been dating businessman Tom for nearly two years and they moved in together earlier this year.

She's even hinted that wedding bells and children are on the cards, recently telling OK! magazine: “[I’ve] definitely [met the one].

“I know we’ll get married a have babies together.”

However, there's no need to buy your hat just yet, as Lucy added: "That’s not going to happen for a long time. I’m only 21 and I’d like to get married when I’m 25 or 26.”

The holiday was no doubt a welcome break for Lucy, who has been embroiled in one of Corrie's darkest plots in history.
