The Platt family will race to rescue Bethany in tomorrow’s Coronation Street – but will they get to her before the vulnerable teen is forced to sleep with three different men?
Sick Nathan Curtis has already accepted payment from a trio of guys, who are all part of the sexual exploitation ring that he runs from his tanning salon.
And disturbing post-watershed scenes just broadcast in tonight’s Corrie saw Bethany sitting scared on a bed as the men filed in and closed the bedroom door behind them.
The soap’s gritty grooming storyline has intensified this week with the soap broadcasting at 9:00pm following the Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals. Viewers have also seen Nathan burn Bethany with a cigarette as he aimed to keep her under his control.
This evening’s cliffhanger saw Shona Ramsey (already revealed to be an ex-girlfriend of Nathan’s) hammer on the door of the hairdresser’s and warn David that Bethany is in big trouble.
Friday’s visit to Coronation Street finds David telling Sarah and Gary that Bethany is being groomed – but can they reach her before it’s too late?
