A health scare for Summer Spellman on tonight's (May 27) episode of Coronation Street led to her and Aaron growing closer again.
Before heading out to her maths exam, Summer secretly flushed her insulin down the sink. However, once the exam started, Summer found that her vision had blurred due to uncontrolled blood sugar levels and without her diabetes kit, she was taken to hospital.
At the hospital, Summer was questioned by a concerned Billy about whether or not she forgot her insulin on purpose or not. She was more focused on missing the exam.
Billy and Paul tried to console her, unaware of what happened this morning, and Billy promised to plead her case to the school.
Later, after seeing a post from Summer online, Aaron visited the hospital and apologised for previously rejecting her.
He then explained the reasons behind his behaviour, telling Summer he couldn't handle the news of her having an eating disorder because he too has one.
"I put on a ton of weight when I was first diagnosed with diabetes so I just started messing with my insulin to try and lose it all," he explained.
He then told Summer how his actions led him to fall into a diabetic coma and that he still struggles to take his medication.
"I haven't done anything stupid like that in a long time, but my weight still bothers me and I'd be lying to you if I said a wasn't tempted every single day to skip an injection," he added.
He realised Summer had skipped an injection before the exam but suggested they try hanging out together again, on the condition that she could look after herself and take her insulin properly.
Are the pair headed for love?
