It is official that Lucy Fallon is starting up production on Coronation Street once more as Bethany Platt.
In 2020, Bethany departed the Cobbles. She made the decision to follow her heart and go to London for a new job, but doing so meant parting ways with the man she had fallen for, Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard).
The arrival of Lucy on our screens over the holiday season will place her in the midst of the fallout from the arrest of murderer Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce).
There is no question that the Bethany who left Weatherfield three years ago will be different from the one we’ll meet again soon. It also seems that her time in London has caused her to go through a little bit of a change.
In a recent video posted by the Coronation Street Twitter/X account, Lucy said that Thursday, October 19, will be her first day of filming since returning.
The actress, who gave birth to Sonny Jude earlier this year, expressed her excitement and nervousness about returning to the program.
Daniel’s devoted wife Sinead Tinker (Katie McGlynn) would undoubtedly wear a red leather skirt, jewelry, and a rainbow-colored sweater, as can be seen on Lucy.
It’s clear that Bethany has matured considerably while she’s been away, but how will it affect the plot of her return?
Although we still don’t know much about what pulls Bethany back to the cobbles, star Charlotte Jordan recently hinted that it’s possible that Bethany, Daniel, and her character Daisy Midgeley may end up in a love triangle plot.
Charlotte predicted a new love triangle to Inside Soap, “I suppose there will be one!”
“Lucy and I chatted at the Inside Soap Awards, and we’re both excited to work together.”
Ideally, Daisy and Bethany will clash before becoming friends. It would be wonderful if Daisy could have a pal.
Could they end up dating just for Daniel to reconcile with Bethany given the continuing plot in which Ryan Connor (Ryan Prescott) and Daisy desperately try to hide their infidelity?
