They make an adorable pairing but Coronation Street couple Bethany Platt and Craig Tinker have too many demons for a romance to work, Lucy Fallon has warned. Craig and Bethany have always been solid friends and recently, their relationship turned into more.

However, with Bethany having endured sexual abuse from depraved monsters and now trying to deal with her issues via lapdancing, the teenager is less than ready to embark on a relationship. Meanwhile, as he struggles to support Bethany, Craig is secretly suffering from OCD.

During a recent chat with us at Metro.co.uk, Lucy explained that the friendship would bring support for them both – but as for whether romance will endure, she predicted not.

She shared: ‘At the moment, Bethany and Craig probably don’t have a romantic future. Bethany isn’t in the right place to have a relationship after everything that she has been through with men. Craig is different of course but he is a close friend and for now I think that’s all she can see him as.

‘Bethany also discovers that Craig has his own mental health issues, that strengthens the friendships as they both appreciate what one another is going through. Whether or not a romance will continue is debatable but the friendship is really strong.

‘It’s also important to show that you can be friends with a boy – that you can be really close to someone and support each other without there having to be any kind of romance. If it then did develop into a romance long term, people might feel that they have earned it – if it does happen eventually.’

Asked what she sees the future holding for Bethany, Lucy added: ‘I’m taking things as they come at the moment – obviously I would want Bethany to have happier storylines but I also like the grittier ones. I don’t know what is coming up but I would be more than happy with it if it happened to be another gritty story.

‘I think we will start to see her trying to get her life back on track after this but what she has been through will always be there so I know it will be revisited again in the summer and that’s all to do with situations that she finds herself in that will have triggers. The key is that we don’t ever forget as Bethany will always have triggers in her life where it will come back.’

Before that comes to pass, Bethany will end up in a serious situation as she lashes out and attacks a lapdancing club client with a bottle. After being arrested, Bethany is facing prison and Lucy warned us that her alter ego isn’t going to cope well with having to appear in court again.

But with Craig by her side, can her friend get her through this?
