Lucy Fallon, 24, took to Instagram yesterday with “tears” and “mascara all over her face” to pen an emotional goodbye to Coronation Street.
The English actress, who joined the show straight after sixthform back in 2015, played the role of Bethany Platt in the ITV soap opera for five years.
She described her time on the show as “the most incredible five years of her life”.
After filming her final scenes this week, an emotional Lucy shared several pictures from her time on Corrie online as well as a picture of her real family on the set of the show.
Alongside the snaps, she wrote a lengthy post.
It began: “I’m writing this with mascara all over my face and tears/snot dripping onto my clothes but that’s a wrap… on what has been the most incredible 5 years of my life.”
Lucy continued: “It’s so crazy to me that 5 years ago, I had just finished 6th form and had no idea what direction life was going to take me in.”
Talking about her on-screen grandmother, she humorously added: “I never in a million years expected that I would be calling Gail Platt a friend. But here we are…”
The actress, who announced she was leaving the show last year, went on to say: ”I’m grateful for every single second of it.”
Thanking her “second family” for their acting advice over the years, Lucy said: “It’s such a cliche, but the Platt family really are a second family to me.
“And I will forever be in debt to them. They have taught me everything I know… who needs a degree and drama school when you have the PLATts????”(sic)

Lucy signed off by thanking the cast and crew, and the viewers at home for their support over the years before finally thanking her character Bethany for the “fun” they’d had together.
She said: “To the cast, crew, and everyone in between, I will hold you all in my heart for the rest of my life.”
“And to the viewers, thank you for the endless amount of support I have received over the years.”
Possibly hinting that her character could return in the future, she signed off: “And to you Bethany… oh what fun we’ve had. But it’s not goodbye, just see ya later.”
