During her time on the cobbles, she has had some tough storylines including a child grooming and exploitation storyline.

After being bullied by a group of girls at school, a self-conscious Bethany met a charming man named Nathan Curtis.

However, Nathan soon began asking Bethany to sleep with his friends saying he owed them favours, however, Nathan was taking money from the men.
