Lucy Fallon has landed her next acting gig since her Coronation Street exit - in a terrifying radio play across from Doctor Who's Pearl Mackie.

Bethany Platt actress Lucy waved goodbye to the Cobbles in March following an emotionally heavy plotline.

And now she's switching up soaps for the paranormal as she grapples with a ghost haunting her and Pearl, The Sun reports.

Pearl's best known for her Doctor Who stint in which she played the titular Time Lord's travelling companion.

Now she and Lucy will play a couple terrorised by a ghoul in Sour Hall, which will hit the airwaves in early 2021.

Writer Laura Kirwan-Ashman described the project as "an immersive audio horror set and recorded on a Yorkshire farm about a lesbian couple tormented by a boggart, using binaural/360 sound! Coming early 2021."

In the meantime, fans will be able to see Lucy row the length of Britain with a handful of other famous faces in Don't Rock The Boat.

She'll be joining the likes of Jack Fincham, Kimberley Walsh and Joe Weller on the upcoming ITV reality show.

The 12 celebs will be split up into two teams of six, with Lucy joined by Jack, Kimberley, Joe, The Chase's Shaun Wallace and Olympic gold medalist Denise Lewis OBE.

The other team will be comprised of Lucy's Corrie co-star Craig Charles, Fleur East, Tom Watson, Jodie Kidd, Adam Thomas and Victoria Pendleton CBE.

They will row more than 500 miles across five shows from Land's End in Cornwall to John O'Groats right at the top of Scotland.

Spanning Monday to Friday next week, the show will be fronted by Top Gear's Freddie Flintoff and The Voice's AJ Odudu.

And while fans will be delighted to see Lucy back on our screens, they're desperate to know whether she'll be braving I'm A Celebrity come November.

While no names have yet been confirmed, and Ant & Dec are remaining tight-lipped, Lucy's was one of the names floated to head to the ruined Welsh castle to battle the wind and rain.

She was first tipped back in June to be taking part, bookies Ladbrokes claiming: "Lucy Fallon is fast-becoming a dead-cert to be the next soap star to appear on I'm A Celeb."

The show has been moved from its usual Aussie jungle setting to the spooky Gwrych Castle in Wales after Covid threw a spanner in the works.
