They appeared together on Coronation Street for four years.
And Lucy Fallon had nothing but praise for her co-star Katie McGlynn, as she gushed about the actress while speaking exclusively to MailOnline at the Pride Of Britain Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Monday.
The soap star, 23, said of Katie's final episode on Friday: 'I thought it was amazing. Katie [McGlynn] and Rob [Mallard] was unbelievable, I cried the whole way through.'
In the soap, Lucy's character Bethany Platt shared a kiss with Daniel Osbourne (Rob) while his wife was dying.
Of the scene, the actress said: 'People weren’t happy with Bethany and me but it was important to do that.
'Corrie did that to add to the drama but I think it was important to show that Daniel was grieving so much and in that moment was looking for some comfort, it was a good episode it was so hard to watch.'
Lucy looked stunning on the red carpet, as she wore a plunging red gown that showed off a hint of her cleavage.
She paired the bright ensemble with a pair of silver open-toe heels, and kept her personal items in a black handbag.
The beauty's blonde locks were swept back into a glamorous up-do, and she wore a light palette of make-up to highlight her pretty features.
Lucy was joined on the red carpet by her boyfriend Tom Leech, who looked dapper in an all-black ensemble for their outing.
The awards recognise and celebrate ordinary people up and down the country doing extraordinary things.
Hosted by Carol Vorderman, celebrities and public figures including Prince Charles, Robert Downey Jr, Sir Ben Kingsley, Dua Lipa, Ant & Dec, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen, Adam Lambert, Christine Lampard, Sir Michael Caine, Jonathan Ross, Suranne Jones, and the judges and casts of Strictly Come Dancing and X Factor honoured this year's awe-inspiring winners.
Prior to the night, Carol Vorderman said: 'Pride of Britain is such a huge part of my life, it's hard to believe it's 20 years since we first started. In that time, it has found a place at the heart of British life, and the winners represent the very best of us. I never fail to be humbled by them, and this year's are no different.'
