She added, "I really didn’t want to – I kept saying I was going to go home – but my mum forced me to stay. I like to watch things in my own time as I felt quite sad that if I was watching it with everyone then it meant it was definitely over.

"I’d had quite a lot of wine and I had a little cry. My mum was really crying!"

Explaining her mum's emotional reaction, Lucy said, "I think [it's] because she’s a Corrie fan and it’s a stable job. But she’s happy for me to do whatever. She’s not like, 'You’re an idiot!'

"I’m not under any illusion that I’m going to get a job really quickly, but I’m not worried about it. It’s just scary going into the unknown."

Lucy Fallon wouldn't say no to a Coronation Street return...

She told OK, "I’d never say never because Bethany didn’t die. I didn’t leave because I didn’t enjoy it, I left because I felt like if I didn’t leave now and try to experience life I would never leave.

"That wouldn’t be a bad thing, but I didn’t want to get to ten years down the line and think, 'I should have gone for a couple of years to experience other things.'"

Coronation Street continues on ITV.
