Coronation Street reveals full details of Amy Barlow's big new issue-based story

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has revealed the full details of Amy Barlow's new issue-based story, which will address the issue of non-consensual sex.

Last week, it was announced that the soap would be tackling a big new storyline involving Amy Barlow and Aaron Sandford - and now we know the specifics.

In scenes that will air on March 3, Summer Spellman will confide in Amy about how she is struggling to trust her boyfriend Aaron, who has been having late-night phone conversations with his ex-girlfriend Mia.

After Summer confides in Amy that she is less than impressed with Aaron's behaviour, Amy tells her she is being needy and insecure, leading Summer to hit back with a jibe about Jacob, who recently left.

Following their argument, Aaron finds an upset Amy and reveals he has been promoted to mechanic following his probation.

Telling Amy he is in the mood to celebrate, Aaron reminds everyone that it's cocktail night at the Bistro.

When Amy and Aaron get ready and share a few drinks before going out, the sexual chemistry is evident and they end up kissing before Amy pulls away.

Wracked with guilt and struggling to watch Aaron with Summer at the Bistro, Amy decides to head home.

Later, as Aaron and Summer's sniping ruins the evening, Aaron announces he is going home.

Back at the flat, Aaron and Amy continue to drink and play drinking games, polishing off all the alcohol in the flat.

Stumbling into the bedroom in search of more alcohol, Amy says she is too drunk and is feeling sick as she falls on to the bed.

Aaron climbs into the bed next to her, trying to kiss her, and Amy is completely oblivious.

Coronation Street has been working with the Schools Consent Project on Amy's storyline.
