Bethany Platt looks set to remain under sinister Nathan Curtis’s spell in next week’s Coronation Street when she secretly meets up with him.
Nathan – who was arrested in last Friday’s episode of the ITV soap – has obviously been released on bail thanks to the help of his co-conspirator Neil, who is also a serving police officer.
And in this sneak peek at Monday’s episode, Corrie fans can see Nathan once again manipulating Bethany, telling her that her parents are treating her like a child and that he was in no way responsible for what happened to Shona.
Next week’s episodes will also Nathan suggesting to Bethany that she tell her family that they’ve split up – while also convincing her that they should flee together.
Actress Lucy Fallon recently revealed that the scales won’t be falling from Bethany’s eyes anytime soon: “It’ll be a long road to recovery for Bethany.
“Speaking to various charities, it’s clear that people to whom this has happened haven’t got over it. And, for a while, Bethany will just be really confused. She doesn’t believe that she’s being groomed for quite a long time.”
