Dad can't watch grooming story, says Corrie's Lucy

By Katie Archer

Coronation Street actress Lucy Fallon has said her father cannot bear to watch her child grooming storyline.

Fallon plays 16-year-old Bethany Platt who is dating a much older man, Nathan Curtis, who is sexually exploiting her and intends to pimp her out to his fiends.

The actress said: "My mum watches it, but I don't think my dad can at the moment.

"And my boyfriend doesn't watch because he finds it too uncomfortable.

"I find it uncomfortable to watch because it's me in it."

The 21-year-old added that the controversial plot had made her think about how to tackle online grooming.
