Lucy Fallon: Coronation Street's Bethany Platt 'lands first job' after soap exit

She continued: “I think people thought the kiss should have been somewhere else in the story.”

However, the actress went on to defend the storyline, and insisted that these things can happen in soaps.

She added: “I feel like it needed to happen, it’s a soap, it’s gonna be dramatic and because of what Sinead is going through, she’s dying of cancer, and what Daniel is going through, he’s losing his wife and that moment he just needed comfort.

“I feel like it does happen.”

Lucy Fallon will be appearing on The Chase Celebrity Special at 5.35pm today.
