2007-2008: Relationship with Rhys and shock discovery[]

Beth and Rhys met when he accidentally knocked her off her bike whilst driving, both on their way to purchase tickets to a concert. Rhys purchased the last two tickets for himself and his friend, Gilly, but Rhys gave her Gilly's ticket. The pair exchanged numbers and began dating. However, Beth began avoiding Rhys after the death of her father.

Rhys was later informed that his biological father, Noel Ashworth, had died. At his funeral, Rhys was introduced to his half-sister - Beth! Rhys believed that Beth had known all along and told her that he never wanted to see her again, but Beth soon began school at Hollyoaks Community College, despite applying to be transferred. Beth ended up befriending Zoe Carpenter and Kris Fisher.

2008-: Relationship with Gilly & Incestuous Affair[]

Beth and Rhys began resolving their differences after Beth moved in with the Ashworth family. The family threw her a birthday party to get her settled in, and Beth ended up befriending her cousin and Rhys's half-sister, Hannah Ashworth. Beth also fell for Gilly and they went on a double date with Hannah and Danny Valentine. Beth and Gilly shared a kiss, witnessed by a jealous Rhys. Eventually Beth gave into her feelings for Rhys and the pair began an affair, although the next day they tried to forget about it. Gilly surprised Beth with a trip to Thailand, but before the pair left, Beth and Rhys declared their love for each other, fully aware of the potential consequences.

2008-: Engagement & Affair Revelation/death[]

After Beth & Gilly return from Thailand, Gilly informed Rhys that he was intending to propose to Beth. Beth was surprised to learn that Rhys was dating Mercedes McQueen. Rhys, in turn, warned Beth, who accepted Rhys's engagement, but still continued her affair with Rhys. Rhys and Beth eventually decided to run away together, but Rhys ended up backing out due to his family. Beth became jealous of Rhys and Mercedes and told him of her feelings. The pair shared a kiss, unaware that Mercedes's sister, Michaela McQueen witnessed their kiss. They tried to convince Michaela that she was seeing things, and Gilly refused to believe her due to her drug habit. Gilly later returned home to find Rhys and Beth in bed together, and Gilly attacked Rhys before informing the Ashworths of their affair.

Beth and Rhys were thrown out of home and moved into student accommodation. The pair were arrested and charged, and a court date was set. Rhys and Beth decided to go on the run together in April 2008, with Gilly giving them the keys to his camper-van for them to leave the village. Rhys was distracted whilst talking to Beth and did not see the lorry approaching along the narrow road. The vehicles collided and Beth was killed instantly.
