Coronation Street's Lucy Fallon: Dark times ahead for Platts

'Coronation Street' stars Lucy Fallon and Jack P. Shepherd have teased dark times ahead for the Platt family.

Lucy - who plays rebellious teen Bethany Platt in the ITV soap - has revealed she is to be involved in a "brave storyline" as things take a turn for the worse for her on-screen family.

The 15-year-old daughter of Sarah-Louise Platt (Tina O'Brien) has been dealing drugs for her uncle David's step-son Max's biological father Callum Logan (Sean Ward) but Lucy has hinted she could be set to come to her senses.

She said: "What's coming up for Bethany is very intense.

"Some really scary things are going to happen involving her and the Platts - and it's quite a brave storyline, so I think viewers will be surprised. This could be the wake-up call she needs to straighten herself out."

Meanwhile, Jack - who has played David Platt for 15 years - says the hairdresser is to be at the heart of a gritty plot, which will come to a head in a special live episode in September.

He told the latest issue of Inside Soap magazine: "We're gearing up for the live episode - and there's lots of action involving the Platts.

"It's all building towards David being out for revenge - but only time will tell as to whether he's finally met his match in Callum."
