LUCY Fallon’s fans claim YouTuber Joe Weller fancies her after she split from boyfriend Tom Leech.
The Sun exclusively revealed the Coronation Street star, 24, ended her relationship before joining new ITV adventure series Don’t Rock The Boat with Joe.
Filming for the show took place last month and Joe has revealed he has the hots for one of the contestants in his latest YouTube podcast, Wafflin’.
During the chat, he said: “There’s someone I fancy on the show.
‘There is someone that I fancy, from the group, that I’m doing this TV show with. We’re away for three weeks, and you know. We’ll see what happens.”
It didn’t take long for fans to speculate, as one person wrote beneath his post: “Joe’s talking about Lucy Fallon 100%, fair play lad.”
Another penned: “The show he’s going on is a new show called ‘Don’t Rock The Boat’ and if you look at the cast I think the girl he’s talking about might be Lucy Fallon from corrie. Done some digging here lads.”
A third added: “Joe definitely is talking about that lass from Coronation Street who looks like Maeve Wiley.”
Lucy, who recently left her role on the cobbles as Bethany Platt, is part of the 500-mile expedition where 12 famous faces have been challenged to row from Land’s End to the Scottish Isles.
She headed into the show single, with sources revealing lockdown drove her and Tom apart.
A source said: “She and Tom have called it quits and are no longer together. They spent lockdown together but it gave them time to evaluate what they want.
“They decided taking time apart was the best idea and they have gone their separate ways.
“Tom has never courted the spotlight and has quit social media because he doesn’t want to see anything related to her.”
Lucy has put a brave face on the break-up — simply posting pictures and videos on social media with her new co-stars, including singer-songwriter Fleur East and YouTuber Joe Weller.
She met insurance manager Tom, 29, through pals and said she had hoped to get engaged.
In 2018, Lucy landed two Soap Awards and a National Television Award for her character Bethany’s grooming storyline.
