Amy Barlow from Coronation Street will allegedly engage in extramarital sex with her close friend Aaron Sandford, according to an exclusive report.
Future Coronation Street scenes will feature friends Aaron Sandford (James Craven) and Amy Barlow (Elle Mulvaney) getting wasted at their apartment. However, when Aaron takes advantage of the circumstance and has sex with Amy against her will, things quickly get out of hand. Actress Elle Mulvaney explained to Express.co.uk why her character remains silent following the incident.
Before going to the Bistro to celebrate Aaron’s promotion, the two friends share a kiss at the apartment because they can both feel the chemistry there.
Later that night, after spending the entire evening arguing with Summer Spellman (Harriet Bibby), Amy returns to the apartment feeling guilty about kissing her boyfriend. Aaron follows her shortly after.
Both of them are irritated with their partners, and Amy is still grieving over the departure of Jacob Hay (Jack James Ryan), so they decide to consume an excessive amount of alcohol.
Aaron follows Amy into the room and decides to have sex with her while she is unaware of what is happening, even though she stutters into her bed and claims to feel sick before falling asleep.
Amy wakes up hungover and has no memory of how she got into bed, according to scenes scheduled to air on the soap opera next week.
Amy learns about what transpired for the first time when she has lunch with Aaron and he admits that things got out of hand and they shouldn’t have had sex.
Amy says she was too inebriated to have given consent as he begs her to forget they had sex so it won’t affect his reconciliation with Summer.
Aaron, however, lies and claims to Amy that the decision was mutual because she was just as inebriated as he was.
Actress Elle discussed the plot with Express.co.uk and other media outlets, and she revealed what upsets Amy the most.
She said: “I think what shocks her the most is that he doesn’t acknowledge her feelings.
“I think she knows he doesn’t think this is anything deep down, and I think that really, really hurts her,” the author said.
The soap star acknowledged that she believed Aaron’s insistence that they both desired sex discourages Amy from telling others.
She said: “Yeah, but also how do you even phrase that to somebody?
“She has so much going through her head at that time, she can’t even begin to think, ‘how can I tell other people?’“
She’s dealing with so much and she thinks that she’s strong and she can handle it all by herself.
“But even saying the word rape and saying what has happened to her is so difficult and takes so much effort and energy from her which, in that initial stage, she just doesn’t have.
“She just feels deflated, so paired with the fact Aaron is saying don’t tell anybody, she feels like she’s not being heard by him.
“He’s batting it off as though it’s nothing.
“It does, in her head, make her think, ‘how can I begin to tell anybody this when he doesn’t even believe me and he’s done it.’.”
