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 storyline is set to begin at the start of next year.

“And the show is working closely with relevant child protection charities to make sure what we air is as realistic as possible.”

Before then though, there’s the small matter of Christmas in Weatherfield, and Bethany is set to dramatically collapse, after being left embarrassed by a clash with her mother.

In recent weeks, viewers have seen her crush on Gary Windass develop, and while she will decide not to act on it, Sarah will discover the truth about Bethany’s feelings.
