Coronation Street: Craig Tinker angers fans when he stops Bethany Platt telling the truth about Neil: Craig Tinker was seen telling Bethany Platt that he was going to support her [ITV]
After Bethany tried to make a move on her friend, Beth Tinker’s son sat her down and comforted her by insisting that he was always going to be there for her.
Believing that she always messed up, Sarah Platt’ daughter said: “All I ever do is mess up and it’s everyone else that suffers, you, my mum, Mary.”
Refusing to let Bethany believe that, Craig insisted that he also felt like he let people down before bringing up Neil and praising him for the way he made him see things differently.”
My Sergeant Neil says I think too much, says I should trust my instincts,” he explained.

Unaware of how involved Neil has been and the threat he issued to her if she didn’t keep quiet, Craig then suggested: “Maybe I should talk to him about you.”
Recoiling in horror, Bethany sat up and began to tell Craig the truth.
“No. You need to know something. Neil’s not the person that you think he is. he…”
However, she was stopped when Craig mistakenly thought that Bethany didn’t want to talk to him because of the way he came across.
“Look, I know he can be full of himself at times but he’s made me see things more clearly,” Crag insisted.

But as Bethany tried to explain the situation again, she was interrupted by texts from her mum.
Angry with Craig for not allowing Bethany to speak out, one fan declared on Twitter: “Craig shut up and listen to Bethany #Corrie.”
While another added: “Bethany was so close to telling Craig about Neil #Corrie.”
“OMG BETHANY WAS SO CLOSE TO TELLING CRAIG ALL ABOUT NEIL THEN #Corrie #coronationstreet,” declared a third soap viewer.
“Craig’s an idiot. #corrie,” a viewer simply stated.
One fan declared on the social media site: “Craig needs to know the TRUTH about Neil #Corrie
However, it appears not all is lost as Craig raised Bethany’s comment with Tim in the Rovers later on.
“Bethany said a weird thing. She said Neil wasn’t who I think he is or wasn’t who he says he is,” he said with a look of confusion on his face.
