Coronation Street blunder as Sarah and Gail Platt forget Bethany’s 18th birthday

CORONATION Street fans were puzzled last night after the soap appeared to forget it was Bethany Platt's 18th birthday.

The nail technician - who is played by actress Lucy Fallon in the ITV soap - didn't seem to have her birthday acknowledged by any of her family leaving viewers confused.

 Bethany presumably just sat inside furious that her family forgot her big day

Bethany was born on June 4 2000 to a then 13-year-old Sarah-Louise Platt but there was nary a mention of it in tonight's two episodes.

Instead the episode featured quite a lot of the Platt family as Sarah fretted over Gary accidentally getting his one-night stand Nicola Rubinstein shot.

Her grandmother Gail spent all of the episode trying to raise £3,000 to pay fraud psychic Rosemary Piper to lift Richard Hillman's alleged curse and even bought her a cake, but there was no sign of a nice cake for poor Bethany.

Even Bethany's best friend Craig Tinker was too busy hanging around the back of Underworld in time to accidentally catch an international drug dealer.

Understandably her family were feeling slightly less like they wanted to celebrate given the traumatic times they had been through recently.

But viewers were hoping for some kind of acknowledgement for troubled Bethany's special day.

One wrote: "It’s Bethany 18th really hope she’ll be in part two x #Corrie"

Another said: "#corrie unhappy birthday Bethany."

Fortunately fans were all over it and tweeted their birthday wishes to the fictional character.

A second added: "Happy 18th birthday to Bethany Platt."
