CORONATION Street fans feared for Bethany Platt as she welcomed evil Mel back into her life on tonight’s show.
Mel declared she was “penniless” with nowhere to go as she arrived to tell Bethany she was too scared to testify against sex groomer Nathan Curtis in court.
Despite her initial suspicion, kind-hearted Bethany took pity on the brainwashed sales assistant (Sonia Ibrahim) and invited her into her home for the night.
She told mum Sarah-Louise: “We need her to stand up with me in court. She’s my only hope.”
And although Mel’s down and out act certainly had Sarah-Louise fooled, Gail and Audrey’s suspicions were confirmed when Mel secretly called Nathan in prison and told him: “I’m in.”
Fans immediately feared for Bethany, and urged her not to be “fooled” by Mel.
One tweeted: “Trouble ahead with this one Bethany. Run a mile and don’t stop.”
Another added: “No Bethany. Don’t listen to her, You could be in danger again.”

A third fan added: “I know Mel was up to no good getting Bethany on side, something tells me it’s not going to end nicely for Bethany.”
Others labelled evil Nathan a “twisted controlling manipulator,” with one angry viewer tweeting: “What the hell does Mel see in him?”
