Coronation Street’s Lucy Fallon says leaving ITV soap was ‘worst decision’ she ‘ever made’

Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon recalled that she quit her role as sex-trafficked and traumatised Bethany just before a “horrendous” lockdown. The emotionally wraught storylines she’d been filming might have left her exhausted, but despite that, she now believes that leaving the soap was the “worst decision” she could ever have made.

The ITV star felt she was constantly being bombarded with questions about her next role, at a time when she was “struggling to find” her place in entertainment. Talking on the BTS With… podcast, she explained: “”It was potentially the worst possible decision I could have ever made.

“I’ll be honest, I have struggled, it’s been hard – and I think that the main reason is because we were in a global pandemic. It also killed me that I was probably on a bit of a high when I left Corrie, and then lockdown sort of fizzled that out.”

When the lockdown lifted, she worked with her agent to try to find her “place” so that she could be matched to new projects that were right for her, but she failed to make the mark she had hoped for at auditions. “Everything just started to fall apart a little bit,” she agonised.

“The worst question that you can get asked when you aren’t working is, ‘What are you doing now? What are you doing next? What TV show are you going to be on now?’ As if it just kind of works like that,” Lucy added. It turned out that even the soap star’s mum had been anxious and “unhappy” about her leaving, as she previously revealed on This Morning.
