Lucy Fallon has quit "Coronation Street".
The 23-year-old actress has played Bethany Platt on the ITV soap since 2015, but will be departing the show when her contract ends in 2020 in order to "pursue other projects".
Producer Iain Macleod told The Sun Online: "Lucy advised us at the start of this year that she would like to leave at the end of her current contract in 2020 to pursue other projects.
"She is an amazing performer and has been at the centre of some huge stories for us during her time on the show. I have no doubt that her stellar career will continue beyond the cobbles and would like to wish her all the best in whatever she does next - starting with the brilliant final chapter of Bethany's story!"
Whilst a source added to the publication: "Lucy's been in Corrie just under five years and feels now is the right time to try new things. Everything is amicable and there isn't any anger there. Bosses are keen to leave the role of Bethany open in case Lucy does want to return in the future."
Since arriving on the cobbles four years ago, Lucy's character Bethany has been involved in a number of dramatic storylines, including a sexual abuse plot which saw her bag the Serial Drama Performance prize at the 2018 National Television Awards.
Lucy has also won the Best Actress prizes at the Inside Soap Awards in 2017 and British Soap Awards in 2018.
Meanwhile, the star recently claimed she was going to quit acting to become a midwife before landing her role in the soap when somebody "forced" her to audition.
She said: "I was going to pack it all in to become a midwife, but somebody forced me to audition.
"Four years later, I've learned so much and I'm not in debt."
