The 'Coronation Street' actress - who is known for playing Bethany Platt in the soap - is desperate to walk down the aisle with her boyfriend Tom Leech and thinks the beautiful Caribbean island would be the perfect place for him to pop the question.

Speaking to OK! magazine, the 21-year-old star said: "I like the idea of a surprise proposal but I think Tom will do it in a different kind of way so I won't be expecting it."

Tom added: "St Lucia would be the perfect place for a proposal but that's yet to come. I'm not putting a time frame on it."

And, although the couple would like to get hitched in the future, the blonde beauty doesn't want to have a family of her own until she's in her late twenties.

She explained: "I'm veering more to my late twenties because I've still got loads of things I want to do. I'm really good with babies because I have nephews, but i like to give them back. I wouldn't like it to be a full-time thing yet."

Tom added: "I'll be around 35 when Lucy's in her late twenties and that's fine by me. I'm happy to leave it as long as we can."

Lucy said: "We've got our dog Milo now and he's just a puppy, so it's a bit like having a child. I feel bad saying that because people who have kids will be like: 'You have no idea.' But it has been a bit stressful. We missed Milo when we were away but it was nice not having the responsibility. Oh and not stepping in dog poo!"
