Coronation Street's Lucy Fallon hints at 'exciting' Christmas storyline

Coronation Street's Lucy Fallon has teased an "exciting" storyline involving her character this Christmas.

The 23-year-old, who has played Bethany Platt since 2015, will be leaving her role early next year. However, it seems her character will have plenty of big moments before she leaves Weatherfield.

Fallon told Digital Spy at the TV Choice Awards on Monday that fans can expect a "big" episode on Christmas Day - although she was keeping quiet on the details.

She said:

"I think there's quite a lot happening over Christmas, there's quite a big episode on Christmas Day. It's secret though. I don't know what else happens to me."

The actress also hinted that her character may not get a happily ever after before leaving Weatherfield, following Sinead Tinker's death - and her attraction to Sinead's husband, Daniel Osbourne.

When asked if Bethany would be seeing happier times before she left, Lucy said:

"No, she's not going to have happier moments because she starts to fall for Daniel but obviously he has a wife who is dying of cancer."

It comes as Fallon previously announced she would be leaving Corrie - and revealed when she would be filming her final scenes.

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".

explained that while it will be "horrible" to leave Corrie behind, it felt like the "right time" after five years.

She said:

"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."
