Why did Lucy Fallon break-up with her ex?

Lucy and ex-boyfriend Tom apparently called it quits after struggling during lockdown.

A source told The Sun: “She and Tom have called it quits and are no longer together. They spent lockdown together but it gave them time to evaluate what they want.

“They decided taking time apart was the best idea and they have gone their separate ways.”

Don’t Rock The Boat is an upcoming endurance reality series on ITV.

12 celebrities will compete across two teams to row across the circumference of the British Isles.

A source told The Mirror Lucy sees this role as a huge adventure: “Lucy thought it sounded like the adventure of a lifetime. It’s been described as a mix of I’m a Celebrity and SAS: Who Dares Wins… only harder.”

This will be Lucy’s first major TV role since quitting Coronation Street as Bethany Platt.
