Phil is a fictional character of Coronation Street who appeared as a minor antagonist in both the 2016 series and the fictitious Weatherfield series.

History

Phil was the father of school bully Lauren who terrorized Bethany Platt for several months with her gang. In September 2016, Lauren was expelled from Weatherfield High after several other students spoke out.

Events in Coronation Street

After months of bullying Bethany informed headteacher, Mr. Griffin, about Lauren and her actions and a meeting was staged between the two girls. The meeting soon ended in disaster with Lauren's Mum and Sarah Platt yelling at each other which resulted in both girls being suspended. Because of Bethany's bravery, more people reported her for bullying and Lauren was ultimately expelled. In an attempt to seek justice, Phil confronted Mr. Griffin in the hope that Bethany would receive the same punishment as his daughter and tried to maintain that Lauren was still the victim, recounting incidents when Nick Tilsley and David Platt threatened her, but Mr. Griffin stayed firm and threatened to call the police if father and daughter did not leave the premises. Before leaving, however, Phil warns Bethany that she hasn't seen the last of him as he vows revenge on her and her family for getting Lauren expelled.

A few days later, Phil stalked David in his car and followed him to The Dog & Gun where David was planning to take revenge on Maca, the half-brother of Clayton Hibbs, who murdered his wife Kylie. Before David could enter the pub, however, Phil grabbed him and violently beat him up as revenge for threatening Lauren; threatening for further violence should he ever come near Lauren again.

After learning what had happened, Bethany would reflect on her ordeal to her boyfriend Nathan Curtis and he urges her to show him Lauren's profile on Facebook; she does this and he promises her to take care of him.
