Coronation Street character Bethany Platt has been through a lot since being born to Sarah Platt and Neil Ferns.
Currently played by Lucy Fallon, Bethany’s latest storyline saw the character become the victim of Nathan Curtis and his sexual grooming gang.
However, long before the hard-hitting storyline, and before Lucy Fallon stepped into the role, Bethany Platt was played by twins.
From 2000 to 2007, identical twins Amy and Emily Walton played the Corrie character.

When the character returned to the cobbles in 2015, Lucy Fallon was cast.
So where are the original Platt twins now?
Amy and Emily are now 17 years old.
The pair have not continued acting since their roles as children, but instead have taken an interest in sports.

According to Amy’s Instagram page, she is a Great Britain gymnast, something her sister Emily is also passionate about.
The duo still look very similar, however, are unrecognisable from their days on the TV.
Coronation Street continues Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7:30 and 8:30.
