Coronation Street’s Lucy Fallon unrecognisable as she posts teen throwback snaps after splitting from boyfriend


LUCY Fallon looked unrecognisable in a series of throwback snaps from her teenage years.

The ex-Coronation Street star, 24 – who recently split from boyfriend Tom Leech – showed off a deep tan and long, blonde hair in old photos.

Lucy shared the trip down memory lane to celebrate one of her best friends’ birthdays on her Instagram Stories.

She posed in a black minidress and red suede heels in one shot, styling her blonde hair in an intricate chignon and wearing dark eye makeup.

In another, the Bethany Platt actress wore her now sleek, shoulder-length hair in long, bouncy waves.

She wrote: “A special birthday to this gal. One of my oldest friends.”

The actress, 24, looks worlds apart from her teenage self

Lucy’s posts come after she and insurance manager Tom, 29, ended their four-year relationship after being “driven apart” during lockdown.

A source said: “She and Tom have called it quits and are no longer together. They spent lockdown together but it gave them time to evaluate what they want.

“They decided taking time apart was the best idea and they have gone their separate ways.

“Tom has never courted the spotlight and has quit social media because he doesn’t want to see anything related to her.”

Lucy has been getting closer to YouTuber Joe Weller

Since their split, Lucy has grown close to her Don’t Rock The Boat co-star, YouTuber Joe Weller.

Since joining the new ITV show, where celebrities are challenged to row 500 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats, Lucy and Joe, 24, have formed a bond.

But insiders have claimed their relationship has caused a rift within her and Tom’s friendship groups – and raised eyebrows during filming.

A source said: “Lucy and Joe clicked from day one of filming on Don’t Rock The Boat. It’s a tight-knit group but Lucy and Joe had a spark, everyone noticed it.”

YouTube Joe hinted that he’s got his eye on Lucy

The pair are among 12 celebs who have spent weeks away filming the series, which sees stars rowing from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

Joe has made no secret of the fact he has a crush on someone in the show, opening up about it during a podcast.

The 24-year-old said: “There is someone that I fancy from the group that I’m doing this TV show with.

“We’re away for three weeks, and you know. We’ll see what happens.”

Last week, Lucy shared a clip of her and Joe cosying up on social media – something that is thought to have driven her ex Tom to delete Instagram.

The pair were seen messing around on Instagram with their heads softly touching as she struggled to keep a straight face while playing around with a filter.

It is thought to have been the last straw for Tom, who closed down his Instagram account and quit social media just hours later.

Joe found fame as a YouTuber in 2012 and now has more than three million followers on social media and over five million subscribers to his channel.

Actress Lucy began playing Coronation Street’s Bethany Platt in 2015 but announced she was leaving in May last year before exiting the soap in March.
