Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon has reunited with her former co-stars amid claims she’s returning to the soap.

Attending Tina O’Brien’s birthday party with her co-stars, she posed with Tina, Jack P Shepherd, Julia Goulding and Paddy Bever. She captioned the Platt snap: “Besties.”

The Sun reports that Lucy has agreed to return to her role. According to the newspaper she will begin filming later this year.

Her return scenes will apparently air “after Christmas”. Bethany was last seen in 2020 after overcoming her grooming and abuse ordeal.

Viewers watched as she was manipulated by evil Nathan and his grooming gang. She narrowly escaped being trafficked abroad in the hard-hitting plot that won a host of awards.

But now she will reportedly return to Weatherfield. A source told The Sun: “Lucy is one of soap’s most talented actresses who won lots of awards for her powerful portrayal of Bethany’s grooming storyline. She was destined for big things and everyone was sad to see her go but the door was always going to be left open for someone of her calibre and popularity.

“Bosses reached out to her a few weeks ago about the possibility of coming back, and told her everything they’d planned for Bethany if she agreed. She discussed it with her boyfriend, and family, because she’s a mum now with a baby.

“Once they’d talked about childcare, and how best to juggle it all, she was able to say she’d love to return. Everyone is very excited. They were really keen to get her back.”

ED! contacted a rep for Corrie for comment.
