Award-winning actress Lucy Fallon is to switch on the world-famous Illuminations in her home town of Blackpool.

Lucy, who has won a host of TV awards for her role as Bethany Platt in ITV?s Coronation Street, will pull the famous switch in front of 20,000 people at the official Switch-On concert on the night of Friday 30 August.

The Switch-On, which is the biggest night in Blackpool?s year-round events programme, triggers the start of 66 nights of Illuminations in the UK?s most visited seaside resort.

Lucy, who studied singing, acting and drama from the age of two, made her first public stage appearance as a dancer in pantomime at the historic Blackpool Grand Theatre.

Since joining the cast of Coronation Street in 2015 she has enjoyed a stellar rise to fame winning the National Television Award for Serial Drama Performance in 2018 and also Best Actress and Best Female Dramatic Performance in the British Soap Awards in the same year.

In December 2017, she was tipped for West End stardom after winning ITV?s All Star Musicals competition.

The 23-year-old will now join a star-studded roster of Switch-On stars including the likes of Peter Kay, Robbie Williams, Dame Barbara Windsor, Hollywood film director Tim Burton, and last year?s celebrity, Alfie Boe.

Lucy said: ?I'm so excited and honoured to be switching on the Illuminations in Blackpool this year - it's always been a special tradition here and as a local girl it is going to be extra special this year for me and my family."

Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, said: ?We are delighted to welcome one of our truly home-grown talents to the Switch-On stage.

?Lucy is one of the brilliant new talents in television drama and has enjoyed an incredible rise to fame over the past few years. We can?t wait for her to take the starring role on the biggest night in Blackpool?s calendar.?

The Switch-On show, which is being staged on the Tower Festival Headland Arena, will feature performances by Brit Award-winners Busted, Becky Hill, multi-talented singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt, and Sigma, the British drum and bass DJ and record production duo who have twice topped the UK singles charts.

Britain?s top dance group, Diversity, and Club MTV DJs R3wire & Varski will also join the line-up.
As last year, the Switch-On event will be free, with people invited to apply for the 20,000 tickets that will guarantee entry to the arena with half of these going exclusively to Blackpool residents. The free ticket ballot closes at noon on Monday 29 July.
