Lucy Fallon has appeared to have a light-hearted pop at celebrities who have jetted off to Dubai for the holidays.
There has been criticism as back in the UK people are living under restrictions as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, but some stars have explained their trips are for “business” reasons.
Former Coronation Street actress Fallon apparently saw the funny side, and has posted a string of pictures on Instagram of her pretending to see in the New Year in Dubai, where the likes of Chloe Ferry, Georgia Steel and Francesca Allen celebrated the start of 2021.
One image was of a beach in Fleetwood in Lancashire, which looked decidedly chiller than what people might expect of a stretch of sand in Dubai.
“Can’t believe I’m in Dubai for 2021 xxx,” the actor, 25, wrote.
“Look at this Dubai sand,” she captioned another snap.
A third showed the star wrapped up in a big warm coat and scarf and was captioned: “HNY from Dubai.”
However, Fallon later set the record straight just in case people had thought she really had jetted off to the luxury destination.
“Just in case ppl didn’t realise, I’m not actually in Dubai,” she wrote on Instagram.
“Turns out Fleetwood really does look like Dubai after all,” she went on, adding the smiling face with tear emoji.
Fallon is best known for playing Bethany Platt on the cobbles, a role she held from 2015 to 2020.
She has also appeared on the shows All Star Musicals and Don’t Rock The Boat.
