Bethany Platt's sex ring storyline takes a horrifying turn in an upcoming episode ITV

The Coronation Street sex ring storyline involving Bethany Platt will continue to reach new levels as the schoolgirl gets raped at a house party in shocking upcoming scenes.

The storyline – which has garnered a lot of attention in recent months – will get even darker when the 16-year-old is attacked again.

The teenager, who has fallen under the spell of her much older boyfriend Nathan Curtis and corrupted by being pimped out to his friends, will be forced to have sex with another individual from his sex ring.

According to the Daily Star, the abused teen will be shocked when her previous attacker Neil shows up again next week and suggests to Nathan that they invite another friend to join their party, named Ian. This leaves Bethany fearing she will be assaulted yet again.

Bethany will desperately try to stop another horrific ordeal taking place in Friday's (28 April) episode by saying no and telling her boyfriend's pal Neil that she's "not that kind of girl". Sadly, the schoolgirl's pleas go ignored as she is left in tears on the bed.

The teen is forced into the horrific situation after evil Nathan falsely claims he is having financial problems before shouting at Bethany for allowing a stranger to remove camera equipment from his apartment.

Seeing as Bethany is in love, she wants to make things better with Nathan so agrees to meet Neil, but is completely oblivious as to what the two men have in plan.

The storyline has shocked the nation since it began, with many viewers taking to Twitter to express their opinions.
