Coronation Street’s Lucy Fallon admits soap ‘straightened her out’

Lucy joined the soap when she was 19

Lucy Fallon, who plays Bethany Platt in Coronation Street, has admitted landing a role on the ITV soap ‘straightened her out.’

Lucy recently did an interview with The Sunday Mirror Notebook Magazine and was asked if she was a bit of a teenage rebel.

The actress replied saying: “My mum would say yes, definitely. I went through a stage at sixth form when I had a bit of a bad boyfriend and I just didn’t turn up to class, my mum would get calls everyday.

“When I got told I was auditioning for Corrie I was like, ‘I’m not going to get it, what’s the point in even trying?’

“Crazy to think I might have never done it. Corrie straightened me out.”

Lucy also admitted she had a habit of getting a job and not going back.

Speaking about the worst job she ever had, she said: “I worked at the Merrie England bar at the end of Blackpool Pier, and I worked in another bar as a glass collector where they made me clean the sick on the stairs on my first shift.

“I was like, ‘I’m really sorry I can’t do it, I don’t care enough about this job’ and never went back.

“I had a habit of doing that, getting a job and not going back for my next shift. I liked working at Subway though, I had loads of fun. So Plan A is actor, Plan B is midwife and Plan C is making foot-long subs in Subway.”
