Craig Tinker will be left reeling on next week’s Coronation Street when he discovers that girlfriend Bethany has turned to lap dancing.
When Craig is called to a disturbance at a local club, he’s shocked to discover that Bethany is working there under the stage name of Maddison. Believing that Bethany must have been coerced into getting a job there and that Nathan is somehow exerting his influence, Craig finds himself on the receiving end of a curveball when she reveals why she’s doing this for her own personal reasons.
Says Corrie star Lucy Fallon: “In Bethany’s mind, she is laughing at all of the men – she is taking back control of her body and over the way men look at her and approach her. If she is giving them a lap dance, she controls what they do to her, for example they can’t touch her and she takes their money.”
But will Craig be convinced by Bethany’s argument?
