Coronation Street fans were left crushed by the news that Lucy Fallon is leaving her role as Bethany Platt next year – and while there is no doubt a major storyline planned for the character, the family unit on screen won’t be the same without her. Jack P Shepherd, who plays David in the soap, certainly agrees and he said he will miss her although added that he knew she would find success.
He added: ‘Yeah, she’s off. I mean, she might be back. I hope she’ll be back.’
Speaking about her exit recently, Lucy shared: ‘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. Thank you so much for your support and love… can’t wait to see what’s in store for Bethany this year. (sic).’
In a video interview with Metro.co.uk at the British Soap Awards, she added that she was hoping for an uplifting exit storyline and was not ruling out a return so here’s hoping that Bethany isn’t killed off.
Her final filming date has yet to be announced so Bethany will be on our screens until 2020.
