Bethany Britney Platt is the daughter of Sarah Platt and Neil Fearns. She is played by twins Amy and Emily Walton.

Sarah was just thirteen when she gave birth to Bethany. Her dad Neil wanted nothing to do with her and became an "absent father". Moments after born, Alison Webster (who lost her baby Jake) kidnapped Bethany and threatened to kill herself. However Alison handed Bethany back over to her mother and ran in front of a truck (it wasn't known if this was an accident or on purpose).

When Bethany was two, Sarah nearly died in a car crash because of her boyfriend Aidan Critchley who was joyriding. She knew how much Bethany meant to her and decided to become more of a good mother.

Gail's husband Richard Hillman tied up and gagged Bethany along with David, Sarah and Gail and tried to kill them by driving into the canal. They were rescued but Richard perished.

In 2003, her father Neil Fearns died in a road accident and Sarah took her to Neil's funeral. Neil's mother Brenda kidnapped Bethany and threatened to jump off the top of a church, so they could be reunited with Neil. But Emily Bishop managed to stop her and talked her out of it. Brenda was last seen sobbing in the back of an ambulance.

In September 2007, David was meant to be looking after Bethany. He had hidden estasty tablets in her doll for his friend Darryl Morton, but Bethany had taken one of them and David made her drink loads of salt water to bring the tablet back up. Bethany became sick and was rushed into hospital. Sarah attacked David when he confessed what had happened.

In December 2007, Sarah planned to move to Italy with new husband Jason Grimshaw and Bethany with her uncle, Stephen Reid. David was originally meant to go there, but Sarah planted drugs on him and he couldn't go. When she told Jason this, he was sickened and returned to Coronation Street and told Gail and David what Sarah had done. Sarah left for Italy with Bethany.

In July 2008, Gail went to visit them over in Italy. In June 2009, Audrey and Gail are going over to visit them.
