In this week's Inside Soap magazine, they have an interview with Coronation Street's Lucy Fallon, who plays Bethany Platt.
Lucy talks about the upcoming storyline which will see Nathan further ensnare Bethany into his web of evil by proposing to her. You can read more on that here.
Lucy tells Inside Soap that Bethany feels she's not wanted at home by Sarah and Gary and she finds an unlikely ally in Mary after they chat in Preston's Petals.
However, Nathan catches Bethany chatting to Mary, demanding to know what she's said. It's then that Nathan realises he has to do something desperate to ensure that he retains his hold over Bethany and shows Mel an engagement ring he's bought.
After Nathan pimps out Bethany this week to his mate Neil, Lucy says this about the engagement: "It makes Bethany think everything is back to normal, and she forgets about what's happened . The proposal resets how she feels about Nathan."
