With bereaved Kate deciding to go and see the world in memory of her late wife Rana Habeeb, she hasn't been subtle about telling people her plans.

And in a clip from next week, Kate is proudly showing off Thailand's beaches while ordering Bethany to do all the work in the Bistro.

It puts Bethany in a seriously bad mood and she can't help but ranting to Maria Connor about Kate.

But as Maria questions her, Bethany admits she's growing sick and tired of life in Weatherfield.

"It's not her, it's me," she says.

"She's got this trip, Robert's all fired up about his new job and Michelle's got hers and I'm just stuck here cleaning glasses watching them all."
