Coronation Street is set reveal the upsetting aftermath of Amy Barlow’s and Aaron Sandford’s story.

In Friday’s (March 3) episode, the pair will return home drunk after Aaron gets into a heated argument with his girlfriend, Summer.

The two soon start kissing before moving to the bedroom, but Amy begins to feel sick and attempts to move away from Aaron. Aaron, though, continues to make a move although Amy has not consented.

In scenes that air next week, Aaron will patch things up with Summer but he tells Amy (who has no recollection of the night before) not to mention anything about their drunken night together after informing her about what happened between them.

Amy maintains she wasn’t in a fit state to consent, but Aaron attempts to downplay the severity of his actions by saying they're equally responsible for what happened.

Later in the week, Amy struggles to sleep and ends up missing a lecture before meeting with Summer, but she hastily leaves as Aaron arrives with a friend.

After hearing that Summer’s aspirations are to attend Manchester University in order to stay close to Aaron, Amy urges her to reassess her options — but she doesn’t take too kindly to the suggestion.

Aaron again pleads with Amy not to tell Summer about their night together, and Amy realises that Aaron is clearly oblivious to the fact that his actions are more serious than cheating.

Elsewhere on the soap, upcoming episodes will see Daisy’s ongoing struggles with stalker Justin take a new twist as he enters her house. The pair are also due to face off in court following Daisy’s assault charge, but she’s hoping the latest incident will help her attain a Stalking Protection Order.

It’s also a tense time for Faye Windass, who will have to reckon with her past as a familiar face returns to the cobbled streets…

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
