Lucy Fallon, who plays Coronation Street's Bethany Platt, has been speaking about the grooming plot which is going to take a horrific turn.
Next week in Corrie, Nathan will pimp out Bethany to his friend Neil. You can read more on that here.
And Lucy says that it was the most "uncomfortable" scene she's filmed so far.
In an interview with Radio Times, Lucy says: "The most uncomfortable scene I've filmed so far has been the one where Bethany is in the bedroom with Neil. The guy who plays Neil is really nice, but the scene itself was horrific."
"From the point that she sleeps with Neil, she’s questioning why Nathan would let her do that. There’s a scene where she says, ‘You were supposed to love me, why would you be OK with me sleeping with someone else?’
"And he says, ‘it turns me on when you’re with other men. It makes you more desirable when other men want you.’
But from that point, there are little things that make her think that this isn’t right. She isn’t stupid, but because his influence on her is so big, it outweighs her thoughts. But she starts to think something isn’t right."
I'm pleased to hear that finally Bethany is starting to think like this and to doubt Nathan. We already know that evil Nathan is leaving Coronation Street (read more on that here) and so it sounds as if the ending is in sight for this grooming storyline.
