Soap fans THRILLED as THIS celebrity plays an unexpected part in tonight’s Coronation Street

Bethany and Daniel have sent Coronation Street fans wild...

Coronation Street fans have been sent into a frenzy after Daniel Osbourne and Bethany Platt mentioned famous author Marian Keyes.

The mention of the Irish writer, famous for bestselling novels like Rachel’s Holiday, Sushi For Beginners, Last Chance Saloon and Anybody Out There, came after Bethany’s doomed evening at work in the Bistro where she publicly humiliated boss Ray and almost lost her job.

After being asked to treat Ray’s sleazy friends nicely, Bethany understandably took offence at being told how to behave around men, and decided to teach Ray a lesson.

As he schmoozed his potential business associates, Bethany took Ray’s demands to be sweet to his friends literally and served one of his important contacts a children’s ice cream for dessert… complete with a sparkler for good measure.

But while Bethany enjoyed humiliating Ray, he didn’t take too kindly to the gesture and after everyone else had left he threatened her to stop pulling stunts like that or she would be out of a job.

Bethany soon turned up at Daniel’s to vent her anger at what had happened, and he tried to distract her by asking if she had sent off her application for the writing course she wanted to join.
