CORONATION Street’s Lucy Fallon has revealed Bethany will leave the cobbles next March – as she ruled out a stint on Strictly and I’m A Celebrity.
Lucy, 23, admitted she’s looking for more acting projects once she’s freed from her contract and hasn’t been offered stints in reality telly.
Asked about her exit from the soap, Lucy told ITV’s Lorraine today: “End of Jan I will leave Corrie but I’ll be on screen until March. It’s going to be horrible, when I’ve left I’ll have been there for five years, I’m going to miss everyone so much.
“I am excited, I am nervous, we will see what happens. I’ve got nothing lined up at the moment but we will see.”
Asked whether she’d accept an offer for Strictly next year, she added: “I think I’d like to focus on acting and drama. Maybe in the future.”

Speaking about Bethany, who was groomed and raped in Corrie last year, Lucy said: “Bethany has been through a lot and she works with Danielle at the Bistro, he’s been there for her.
“What has happened is accidental. She is not a bad person but she has properly fallen in love with him.
“Another reason she has fallen for Daniel is she is so vulnerable.”
