Bethany puts herself in danger yet again... and the troubled teen hits Back!
Corrie: Bethany Platt went through a living nightmare at the hands of Nathan Curtis and corrupt cop Neil Clifton. And her sudden decision to resume work at a lapdancing club brings it all back this week when a punter gets too frisky. Result: she has a flashback to her grim ordeal and she glasses him. Sadly, the gutsy Platt teen is a long way from recovered…
STORY SO FAR
Bethany Platt’s career as a lap dancer took a hit when she was sacked from Tassels – thanks to Craig Tinker causing a disturbance at the club. So Bethany’s been forced to go back to working for her great-gran, Audrey Roberts, in the salon.
But she’s not pleased about it…
When Brian Packham pops into the salon to get a haircut from Bethany, he lets slip to Audrey that Bethany had a visit from her old Tassels pal, Sam Bryce, while he was there. It seems Bethany hasn’t put her lap-dancing days behind her after all.
Later, Bethany offends a client at the salon, and Audrey, Craig and David Platt huddle together to discuss her behaviour. But Bethany overhears…
Cross that they’re talking about her behind her back, she storms off and phones Sam about auditioning for the lap-dancing club, which now has new owners. Uh-oh!
‘Later, Bethany announces she’s leaving the salon and she’s going back to dancing,’ says our source at Corrie. ‘But, at the club, she’s asked to wear a skimpy bikini.
Bethany refuses, but it’s already obvious this is a very different and more boisterous club than it used to be…’
When a stag do gets rowdy – and a bit ‘hands on’ – poor Bethany has a flashback to her abuser, Nathan Curtis, and she lashes out with a bottle. Ouch!
In the ensuing chaos, the police are called out to the club and Ms Platt is arrested.
As the police quiz the troubled teen, she confesses to her mum, Sarah Platt, that she thinks she had some sort of psychotic episode – she thought the bridegroom was Nathan. Worried about her daughter, Sarah suggests giving counselling another try.
Can Bethany put these troubles behind her? Or will what happened to her always haunt her?
Craig blames himself for Bethany being arrested, but does Bethany see things in the same way? At a time when Bethany could do with all the friends she can get, is there a future for her and Craig?
Or could there be a new romance on the horizon for the tormented teenager? But surely that would mean more heartbreak for poor Craig?
