Lucy Fallon has opened up about whether she was pleased with her exit storyline in Coronation Street. Last night, the actress’ alter ego, Bethany Platt, was seen leaving for London to chase her career dreams.
My future’s uncertain but that’s not to say I won’t do Corrie again
She was seen confronting her boyfriend Daniel Osbourne (played by Rob Mallard), after realising he was not quite over his late wife Sinead Tinker (Katie McGlynn).
The 24-year-old has told OK! Magazine she is glad she has the opportunity to go back to the ITV soap, saying she would have been “more upset” if it hadn’t been the case.
She commented: “It’s a good thing I’ve not been killed. It was my decision to leave so it’s nice the door is open.
“Now knowing what it’s like to be leaving, I think I would have been more upset knowing that it was definitely over.”

Lucy went on to discuss her current plans after shooting her final scenes earlier this year, after first joining the show back in 2015.
She revealed: “My future’s uncertain but that’s not to say I won’t do Corrie again. It was my first audition and my first acting job.
“It’s been a big chunk of my life and I feel like a completely different person. It’s like a family.”
The small screen favourite continued: “I had some lovely leaving presents, like a Gucci purse and a Fitbit. My focus now is getting a job.
“I want to be busy and I don’t care about having time off.
She also discussed the plot lines she has been most proud of over the years, with one standing out.
Lucy added: “The grooming one because that had the most impact. I still get messages now. I got one from a woman who said she had been abused from the age of 10 to 21 and as she watched Corrie she started to realise.
“Now the guy is in prison for 17 years.”
