In Coronation Street, Summer Spellman (Harriet Bibby), who suspects Aaron Sandford (James Craven) of cheating, finds it difficult to put her confidence in him.
When Summer learns that Aaron has been in touch with her ex-girlfriend Mia and that they have been having late-night conversations, she becomes very concerned.
Unsurprisingly, she is upset and concerned about what this might imply for their relationship.
Summer confides in her closest friend Amy Barlow (Elle Mulvaney) that she is having trouble trusting Aaron and fears that he could be having an extramarital affair.
Her best friend should have shown her compassion, but instead does the reverse.
She is being far too needy and insecure, says Amy, who is still wounded from her relationship with Jacob Hay (Jack James Ryan).
Upset, Summer makes a remark about her own circumstance, making fun of Jacob and infuriating Amy.
Aaron discovers Amy distraught after she storms off due to the argument.
Amy and Aaron end up kissing as the drinks start to flow, but she quickly pulls away out of remorse.
Actor James Craven claims that the issues in his relationship with Summer directly lead to the embrace with Amy.
It goes without saying that he and Summer have experienced many issues in their relationship in the past, some of which were beyond their control, but I believe he has always stood by her side.
He has consistently stood by her through everything and made an effort to support her. However, I believe that this time he truly feels betrayed because despite his awareness of his wrongdoing, he attempts to make amends and she simply pushes him away.
“I believe this time is his last straw, and he sort of wonders why bother with any of this,” the speaker said.
Recently, it was disclosed that a non-consensual sex storyline involving Aaron taking advantage of an asleep Amy will be featured on Coronation Street.
The narrative will follow Amy as she learns that she has been assaulted and navigates the feelings that come with it.
The Schools Consent Project, a charity founded in early 2015 that sends volunteers with legal training into schools to present workshops on the legal meaning of sexual consent and major sexual offences, has supported Coronation Street throughout this plot line.
It is anticipated that the plot will spark discussions among friends and family about problems surrounding young people’s sexual activity, such as consent, awareness, respect, and education.
