Coronation Street boss Iain MacLeod recently teased how Bethany would be in for some heartbreak in the lead up to her exit.
The character, played by Lucy Fallon, is set to spark a romance with Daniel Osbourne, who recently lost his wife Sinead to cancer. Bethany has fallen head over heels for Daniel, whose head is still all over the place as he is grieving.
And MacLeod told Metro that there's another part of the Bethany/Daniel storyline to play out before Lucy Fallon leaves the soap.
"What we wanted to make sure once Katie had left the show was that we didn’t have nothing for Rob Mallard to be doing," he said.
"So, what we have is at first a slow-burn story that gradually ramps up in intensity where Daniel in his efforts to move on from Sinead sort of takes her edict that he should be happy. I’m sure you’ll remember the line where she said, 'Don’t forget about me, but do forget about me'."
He explained that as Daniel gets his head around that idea, he "ends up accelerating into a romantic entanglement with Bethany".
"I think we will all know relatively early on is going to end in tears for both of them," he continued. That’s a really good story for Rob and really showcases his abilities, gives Bethany and Lucy Fallon something entirely new to do, this doomed romance, so that’s going to be really big over the first 3-4 months or so."
