Coronation Street villain Nathan Curtis makes more sinister moves next week as he continues his attempts to manipulate his girlfriend Bethany Platt.

Nathan has promised his friends that he'll soon start pimping Bethany out to them, but he knows that Bethany's close relationships with her family and friends could still stand in his way.

This hits home for Nathan next Wednesday when Bethany's friend Craig Tinker (Colson Smith) pays an unexpected visit to her at the tanning salon, wanting to check how she's getting on.

Charming as ever, Nathan (Christopher Harper) tries to make Craig feel welcome but shows a completely different face when he's gone, warning Bethany that her kind-hearted friend is clearly obsessed with her.

Nathan even encourages Bethany to keep her distance from Craig from now on, hoping that he'll be one less person he has to worry about.

Later in the week, there's yet another setback for Nathan when Bethany's mum Sarah comes calling at the salon too, wanting to drag her daughter home after hearing that she's skipping school once again.

Realising that Sarah's anger isn't exactly ideal either, Nathan later pays her a visit and turns on the charm – promising that he only wants what's best for Bethany. Could Nathan's lies cause Sarah to thaw towards him at last?

Whatever happens, Nathan is clearly preparing for the next stage of his evil plan as he takes a photo of a scantily-clad Bethany at his flat and sends it to his mate Neil.

With Nathan promising that it won't be long before Neil gets to be with Bethany, is it now only a matter of days before he asks her to sleep with his friend?

Coronation Street airs these scenes on Wednesday, April 19 and Friday, April 21 on ITV.
