Horta: 'Betty, Daniel may become couple'

Ugly Betty creator Silvio Horta is staying tight-lipped about whether Betty will eventually get together with Daniel.

In an interview with TV Guide, Horta seemed to backtrack on a previous statement in which he said the characters would not become a couple.

"At this point, I actually know what's going to happen. I thought I knew when I made that quote, but you re-evaluate and reassess. What I said before may or may not still be true," he commented.

Horta also confirmed there is to be a love triangle between Betty, Matt and another mystery character.

"It begins earlier in the season and then it really starts to come to a head in the Bahamas episode," he revealed.

However, he refused to be drawn on any further details regarding the third party, stating: "I'm amazed that nobody has figured it out, so I'm just going to keep quiet about it."

The creator of the hit show then went on to discuss rumours that Betty will become less ugly.

"I don't think you see a huge transformation - it's a step," he explained.

Horta added: "It was important to me and America that the change not come because someone says 'You need to change'.

"I think the look is still her. Sure, she's never worn pants before, but she wears a butterfly pin. The trick is: How far do you take it?"

The fourth season premiere of Ugly Betty is due to return to ABC on Friday, October 16.
