The 'Coronation Street' star has gone a massive 22 years without ever sipping the aromatic beverage, despite the UK being one of the world's greatest tea consumers since the 18th century, but insists she doesn't ever intend to sip the likes of builders, breakfast, or Earl Grey for as long as she lives.

She tweeted: "never had a cup of tea in my life and I intend to keep it that way x (sic)"

The 'Corrie' actress' omission shocked a number of the Twittersphere, including her co-star Georgia Taylor (Toyah Battersby), who admitted Lucy's surprise beverage boast had left her feeling "a bit sad".

She wrote: "Not gonna lie, I feel a bit sad (sic)"

But Lucy - who plays regular Roy's Rolls cafe visitor Bethany Platt in the ITV soap - confessed she hates the way tea smells.

She tweeted: "It's just the way it smells I can't get onboard with it (sic)"

Georgia attempted to convince her to start making some beautiful brews, but her mind couldn't be changed.

She tweeted: "I'm genuinely sat here now with a massive brew, sniffing it Doesn't smell of much to me (sic)"

Several other fans took Twitter to question why the cobbles dweller isn't a tea drinker, resulting in Lucy admitting: "I feel like I've let everyone down x (sic)"

But one of a her supporters said they think a brew "smells rank".

A delighted Lucy replied: "I agree!!! I can't stand the smell of it (sic)"
