Audrey Roberts faces adversity with a bottle of whiskey as a companion

13th December 1989: Audrey Roberts was always one for the better things in life and she was thrilled when she managed to persuade husband Alf to move from the pokey 11 Coronation Street to an upmarket house in Hillside Crescent. However, come moving day things went badly wrong when they found out that the forward chain had broken down after they had handed over the keys to their buyers - the McDonald family. After a night in a hotel, Alf thought he had found the best possible solution in the circumstances which was to move into the Corner Shop flat. Audrey was horrified at this come-down and how it would look to the neighbours who she had annoyed with her boasts of moving up in the world. She took the only course she knew and proceeded to lock herself in the bathroom with a bottle of whisky and get blind drunk, refusing to come out despite all entreaties. It would be another three months before she got the house she wanted when she and Alf moved into 5 Grasmere Drive.

Bethany Platt

Bethany Platt 2016

Bethany Platt in 2016

Bethany Platt is the daughter of Sarah Platt and half-sister of Harry. Sarah gave birth to Bethany in 2000 at age thirteen, following a brief sexual encounter with classmate Neil Fearns. Bethany's infancy had plenty of drama; in 2004 she was kidnapped by her unstable paternal grandmother Brenda Fearns, and when she was seven she almost died after taking an ecstasy tablet her uncle David Platt had hidden inside her doll. That same year, Sarah and Bethany left Weatherfield for a new life in Milan, returning in 2015 after Bethany was expelled from her school in Italy. Now a teenager, Bethany was very close to Sarah and at times they behaved more like sisters than mother and daughter. However, she had grown rebellious and difficult to control. In 2016, Bethany was the victim of school bullying which led to self-esteem issues. She then met 35-year-old Nathan Curtis, who was part of a gang in involved in grooming young girls in order to be pimped. Bethany was coerced into having sex with random men and was on the verge of being sold into prostitution abroad when she found the courage to report Nathan and his cohorts to the police. The experience has haunted her ever since.

Previous featured characters: Mavis Wilton; Billy Walker; David Barlow; Maggie Cooke; Steph Barnes; Jackie Ingram.
