"She takes back control of her own body and the way she views herself," Lucy Fallon, who plays the troubled teenager explained.

"Bethany does get a job at the strip club and for Bethany it's a thing to say that she has control over what those men can do to her, so they can't touch her and they can't do anything to her.

"Obviously a lot of people will be asking, 'why is she doing that? That's ridiculous,' but it's the way she's recovering - whether that's the right thing is another story."
