Bethany Platt is set to be at the centre of a sex ring storyline in ‘Coronation Street’, according to reports.
Lucy Fallon’s character has moved into the spotlight this year with a plot centring on diet pills, but it’s now being claimed that she’ll be taking on something even tougher in the New Year.
The Sun reports that Bethany will get an older boyfriend who grooms her, and secretly plans to “pimp her out” to his friends.
While a ‘Corrie’ spokesperson has declined to comment on the storyline, a source tells the paper: “This storyline was not undertaken lightly, it was the subject of major discussions among the show’s writers and bosses
