Coronation Street’s Bethany Platt is set for yet more heartbreak in upcoming episodes – and it’s the last thing the poor teenager needs!
Last year, Bethany was at the centre of a harrowing child grooming and sexual exploitation storyline.
The dark plot – which was criticised by some – saw the young girl manipulated and assaulted by hateful groomer Nathan Curtis and his vile criminal gang.
Viewers watched in horror as she was taken in by Nathan, before being raped by numerous men.
After enduring months of abuse at the hands of her twisted boyfriend Nathan and his sick friends, Bethany finally managed to escape their clutches.
When the ordeal ended, Bethany’s one constant was her best friend and on-off love interest Craig Tinker.
The good friends have decided to stay as friends after a brief attempt at a romantic relationship, but Bethany has now begun to question whether she wants more…
So her world is rocked to the core when newcomer Kayla sets her sights on Craig.
