Actress Lucy Fallon's troubled character will now be reminded of her hell on a daily basis as newcomer Kayla Westbrook starts work at new restaurant Speed Daal.
Bethany was groomed by Nathan Curtis before being sold to his gang for sex and gang raped in scenes aired last year.
When she realises who Kayla's dad is, Bethany's world falls apart.
A show insider told the Daily Star: "Bethany struggles to adjust to having one of Neil's family members so close to her."
"Viewers will have to wait to see why Kayla is in Weatherfield. She keeps her identity secret at first.
"So it's possible she is secretly plotting revenge on Bethany for having her dad arrested and banged up or she could be keen to try to make amends for her father's terrible crimes."
Soap villain Curtis was locked up for grooming Bethany after she testified against him in court.
His comeuppance followed one of Corrie's most controversial storylines ever.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, Lucy Fallon – who is nominated for both a best actress and best dramatic performance gong at this year’s British Soap Awards – will never be free of her ordeal.
The 21-year-old said: “When we spoke to the NSPCC and Childline and Survivors of Sexual Exploitation, it was made clear to us that these things don’t just go away over night.
“It’s something that will be with them forever, it’s such a huge thing that happens to people and obviously a massive thing that happened to Bethany.
“She will live with that for the rest of her life.
“And even though a couple of months after the trial you probably thought, ‘Oh well she seems alright now’. It’s more the long term effects.
“It might be next year she could completely break down because she’s still dealing with it and she will be dealing with it forever.”
