Recently Lucy has been selling some of her unwanted clothing, purses and shoes on Depop.

Earlier this year, Lucy's Corrie character Bethany Platt departed the soap.

Lucy's decision to leave Coronation Street

While Bethany went to London for a new job, Lucy decided to leave the show to try new things.

In a recent interview with The Sun, 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 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 started 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, but it's obviously a bit sad having nothing to do."
