Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has revealed the full details of Amy Barlow’s new issue-based story, which will deal with the theme of non-consensual sex.

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

In scenes to be shown on March 3, Summer Spellman will confide in Amy about how she struggles 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’s less than impressed with Aaron’s behavior, Amy tells her that she’s needy and insecure, prompting Summer to respond with a rant about Jacob, who recently left.

After their argument, Aaron finds an upset Amy and reveals that he has been promoted to engineer after his probation.

Telling Amy that he’s 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 walks away.

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

Later, as Aaron and Summer’s sniper ruins the evening, Aaron announces that he’s going home.

Back at the apartment, Aaron and Amy continue to drink and play drinking games, cleaning up all the alcohol in the apartment.

Stumbling into the bedroom in search of more alcohol, Amy says she’s too drunk and feels sick as she falls into bed.

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