Coronation Street has teased heartache for Bethany Platt in upcoming scenes on the ITV soap, ahead of her exit next year.

Lucy Fallon's character looks downcast and in need of comfort in a behind-the-scene snap shared on the soap's Instagram page.

Teasing scenes currently being filmed, and tipped to air at some point at least six weeks away, Bethany is being consoled by her grandmother Gail Platt.

Sitting on the sofa at home, Bethany looks seriously down or upset about something, choosing to open up to her relative.

Gail has her arm around her beloved granddaughter, and has a look on her face as if she's trying to reassure her over something.

Showing Bethany some love, Gail is no doubt offering some words of wisdom while holding her hand.

Could it have something to do with recent reports that she will share a shock kiss with Daniel Osbourne?

Corrie hasn't given away any details about the plot or what is going on, so viewers will have to wait and see.

The Sun recently reported though that Daniel and Bethany would kiss, ahead of Daniel's partner Sinead learning her cancer has returned - with the fan favourite reportedly set to lose her life.

Meanwhile, the drama could occur amid other big scenes on the soap, with another picture teasing the moment Gemma Winter will go into labour with her quadruplets.

It was recently claimed she would go into labour while trapped on a cable car, while a behind-the-scenes snap shows the character and partner Chesney Brown riding one.

Elsewhere, returning character Fiz Brown, Chesney's sister, is seen having a confrontation of some sort with a mystery woman, yet to be identified.

The final picture teases Sophie Webster's exit, ahead of actress Brooke Vincent going on maternity leave.
