Coronation Street's Lucy Fallon has revealed when she will be leaving the soap
Coronation Street's Lucy Fallon has revealed when she will be filming her final scenes as Bethany Platt.
The 23-year-old, who has played Bethany since 2015, announced she would be leaving Corrie in May 2019.
During an appearance on Lorraine, the actress confirmed that she would be filming her final scenes on Corrie in January - and that she will be on screen "maybe until March".
Lucy explained that while it will be "horrible" to leave Corrie behind, it felt like the "right time" after five years.
"When I leave I’ll have been there for five years and it just feels like the right time.
"I’m going to miss everybody so much. I can’t even properly think about it, but I’m excited, I’m nervous, we’ll just see what happens."
Earlier this year, Lucy confirmed that she had made the "extremely difficult" decision to leave Corrie.
She said that although she has had "the most incredible" time on the show, she will be leaving to pursue other roles once her contract is up next year.
"After the most incredible 4 years, I have made the extremely difficult decision to leave Coronation Street at the end of my contract in 2020," Fallon said in a statement.
"It’s hard to put into words how much this show means to me.
"I’ve made lifelong friends with some of the most talented and hardworking people in the industry, I’ve had some terrific and immensely important storylines and I’ve laughed with the best people everyday. I’m so thankful to Iain and everyone at Coronation Street, I owe everything to them and I will miss them greatly.”
