Bethany Platt (Lucy Fallon) has been bunking off school in Coronation Street because she's being singled out by the classroom bullies.

The problem reached a head when mum Sarah (Tina O'Brien) found out about the absences at the school parent evening and Bethany flipped after she was confronted.

But while Sarah's growing more concerned about her daughter's troublesome behaviour, Bethany has been keeping the source of her problems to herself. 

This week, however, she reveals all to Kylie (Paula Lane). Can she help the struggling teenager?
