Corrie’s Lucy Fallon says Bethany’s kiss with Daniel could pave way for her exit

Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon says her character's kiss with Daniel Osbourne could pave the way for her exit.

The blonde beauty, 23, has announced she's leaving the ITV soap after four years as Bethany Platt.

And her remaining months on the cobbles look set to be tense.

Bethany is in love with married Daniel (Rob Mallard) whose wife Sinead (Katie McGlynn) has terminal cancer.

She was given weeks to live and will be seen on screen for the last time on Friday as she loses her battle in heartbreaking scenes.

Tonight, stricken with grief and struggling to cope with his wife's final days, Daniel seeks comfort in Bethany's arms.

And the fallout could be what leads to the character fleeing Weatherfield.

Lucy explained how the kiss will effect her character during an exclusive chat with Mirror Online at Nickelodeon's Slimefest at Blackpool Pleasure Beach over the weekend.

She told us: "So basically, Daniel has fallen out with Sinead a little bit and it's just sort of got a bit too much for him, they're doing a Christmas Day for her and he doesn't really want to do it, he thinks it's a bit morbid because they know she's only got a few weeks left.

"But they do it anyway and he ends up getting quite drunk and goes a bit crazy and Bethany sees him crying.

"In Bethany's defence, he actually kisses her and it's because he's a bit confused and he's clutching to that bit of comfort."

Lucy said her character struggles to cope with her feelings and the guilt that comes along with them.

She said: "She has feelings for him and it's a horrible situation because obviously she knows that Sinead is going to die, so it's horrible and it's going to be a sad week.

"I think potentially this could have something to do with Bethany's exit, I'm not sure what the actual plan is, and I don't know what happens, but we've filmed quite a bit of stuff after Sinead's death with Bethany and Daniel, and nothing happens between them but Bethany still clearly has feelings for him, so we'll see what happens."
