As the libel action involving the social media post from Amy Barlow (Elle Mulvaney) in Coronation Street goes on, it appears that there is no stopping Aaron Sandford (James Craven) and his father.
Amy made the decision to write about the night Aaron sexually assaulted her a few weeks ago. She made this decision because she had run into dead ends in all of her previous attempts to pursue justice.
Amy went online and blogged about what occurred, underlining the injustice and how unfair it is that Aaron is continuing to live his life without having to face the repercussions since the cops weren’t assisting.
When Eric found Amy’s post, he went to Number 1 and warned her that he would sue her for libel if she didn’t remove it.
In spite of their steadfast determination to support and defend Amy, Steve (Simon Gregson) and Tracy (Kate Ford) have come to appreciate this week the extraordinary lengths they’ll have to go through in order to support the legal case alone.
Amy feels bad when Steve talks about selling the flat above the flower store since it would make Billy (Daniel Brocklebank), Paul (Peter Ash) and Summer (Harriet Bibby) homeless.
After speaking with their lawyers, Eric informs Aaron that Amy is lying, that they will prove it, and that she will receive her rightful rewards.
How far will this go given that we are absolutely certain that Amy is not lying about being raped?
Will Amy’s family be destroyed by Eric and Aaron?
If this is the case, how will Aaron handle seeing Amy in Weatherfield while secretly knowing the truth?
