Lucy Fallon on leaving Coronation Street

Lucy bid farewell to her Corrie alter ego Bethany Platt earlier this year. She joined the ITV soap in 2015 after Bethany ran away from home in Italy, forcing her mum Sarah to come back to Weatherfield.

Obviously COVID-19 has thrown it all up in the air now.

Bethany eventually left for a new job in London in March this year.

In real-life Lucy wanted to try new things. However the actress admitted her career has been floored by the ongoing pandemic, which forced UK TV productions to be shut down.

What did Lucy say?

Speaking to The Sun, she said: "It was really difficult to make the decision to leave, but I'd been there for 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 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?'"

She added: "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. But I do know there are loads of people in much worse situations than me and I've been very lucky.

"I'm trying to stay positive about it, but it's obviously a bit sad having nothing to do."
