And so, before new actress Lucy Fallon takes on the role as Bethany we'll see later this year, let's have a re-cap of the life of Bethany Platt so far, with pictures and the help of Corriepedia and Corrie.net
ou can watch it on Youtube here.
This makes the returning Bethany Platt currently 14 years of age and she'll be 15 this June.
Bethany was taken away to Milan with Sarah in 2007 so we've only seen her on screen for 7 years, but it's been action packed as you can see...
2000 - Bethany was kidnapped at birth by Alison Webster after the death of her own child to an infection. Watch it on YouTube here. Alison handed Bethany back to Sarah then ran in front of a truck and killed herself.

2003 - Bethany was drugged and almost killed by being driven into a canal by Richard Hillman when he tried to kill the whole Platt clan. They survived and he died. Relive the whole Hillman horror here.
2003 - Bethany's dad Neil Fearns died
2004 - Bethany was kidnapped by Neil Fearn's mother, Brenda. Brenda threatened to jump off the top of a church and was talked down by Emily Bishop.
2007 - Bethany took ecstasy and was rushed to hospital. David hid ecstasy tablets in Bethany's doll for Darryl Morton, but Bethany took one of the pills and had to be rushed to hospital.
2006 - Bethany was bridesmaid for mum Sarah at her wedding to Jason Grimshaw. This was the wedding where Jason got cold feet and ran away from the wedding through a toilet window. Watch it on YouTube here. Jason and Sarah did eventually marry in 2007.
Also worth noting is that Todd Grimshaw hoped to adopt Bethany one day, while he was in his relationship with Sarah. That is, however, before he tried snogging Sarah's brother Nick and having his fling with nurse Karl Foster.
Sarah refused to let Todd see Bethany after that, so it's going to be good to see if this is referred to when Bethany is back and if so, how Todd - and Jason - react to having both Sarah and Beth back.
