Nathan has been grooming Bethany for the past six months, and the teenager believes she's in a relationship with him. He's planning to send her to Belgium, but she thinks they're eloping together.
Chris Harper, who plays the horrific sex offender, told The Sun: "She [Bethany] is actually very clever. I think it’s the moment everyone has been waiting for. Bethany jumps out of the frying pan and into the fire, but the end of Nathan’s evil control is in sight.
"Nathan is going to leave Bethany high and dry with a ‘friend’ of his. He is going to wash his hands of her and move on. She’s been a lot of trouble and this is his last chance to cash in on her."
He added: "As ever, Nathan lies to her about his desire to be together and the strength of his love, telling her that they’re eloping to the continent. But he doesn’t do a very thorough job, and takes her compliance for granted.

"Nathan is trying to control Bethany through both flattery and fear, but now the clock is against him too. He thinks he’s clever enough to play this game, but things are starting to get very sticky.
"He thinks if he keeps tightening his grip on Bethany she will comply, but it starts to have the opposite effect. It’s his arrogance that leads her to start to question him – he stops listening to her."
Fans have seen Bethany pimped out to Nathan's friends in a series of disturbing scenes. We're sure there will be a lot of people celebrating when evil Nathan and his cronies finally get their comeuppance.
