Ryan, 26, asked 18 year old Bethany – who become a sex ring victim earlier this year – out for a meal at the Bistro after she helped him secure a job at the builder's yard with Gary.
Her mum, Sarah – played by Tina O'Brien – wasn't too happy about the potential pairing, and Bethany initially seemed reluctant to accept Ryan's offer.
But after she saw Kayla kiss ex-boyfriend Craig, Bethany decided she'd go out with Ryan.
The pair enjoyed a successful date, and ended up getting drunk in the Rovers – and now viewers fear Bethany could once again be groomed by the man she ends up falling for.
One warning sign was that, after Bethany accepted the date, Ryan joked: "I'll go buy some condoms then."
Sarah warned her daughter, but she replied: "Stop worrying. I need to move on from Craig and everything else.
"It’s a meal at the bistro what harm could it do?"
Fans have since taken to Twitter to voice their concerns for the troubled teen.
One wrote: "Gutted Ryan. You’ve got the cheap wine for free.
"I’m surprised Bethany is getting herself involved with him."
Another added: "Don't go on a date with Ryan Bethany!!!"
A third said: "What the hell, Ryan"
A fourth wrote: "Ryan was acting really cringey in front of Bethany and Sarah on Corrie tonight!"
