But she told the Sunday Mirror: “There’s no crisis at Coronation Street – that’s just silly.
“We’ve had amazing storylines this year. Everything is great. It’s just one of those things where a few of us announced we were going then it all came out. So, no, Corrie is not in crisis.
“There are amazing people still there, all the old legends that are amazing. It’s just a few of us who are branching off to do other things.”
Lucy also revealed she had been dropping hints to her boyfriend Tom Leech to propose to her, after sparking rumours the pair had secretly married.
