The latest episode of the soap saw the troubled Weatherfield teen leave the cobbles with the sex ring leader despite pleas from Mary Taylor.
Trying to make Lucy Fallon’s character understand that Nathan wasn’t the man he said he was, Norris Cole’s friend recalled how she was raped.
In one scene, Mary stated: “It is painful to hear believe me. I know. What Nathan and the men did to you was rape. He allowed them to rape you.”
However, that did nothing to stop Bethany who later faced the harsh reality that her getaway with her boyfriend wasn’t the romantic trip she was made to believe she was going on.

After finding out that they were going to Hull before setting sail for Belgium, Nathan then broke the news that she would be going with someone else.
“Not we,” he stated before adding: “A friend of mine is going to take you.”
While it appeared that Bethany was going to go along with the plan, the unexpected twist came when they got to the service station and Sarah Platt’s daughter told Nathan that she was going to the loos.
Noticing that Bethany was going to take her phone, Nathan, played by Chris Harper, took it from her and chucked away her sim card.
However, that didn’t stop the teen from walking up to a family and declaring that she needed hep to escape.
