Amy Barlow's new storyline revealed in Coronation Street as she hunts rapists | The Sun

MONTHS have passed since Amy Barlow was raped by Aaron Sandford but she's not yet out of the woods.

The Coronation Street favourite played by Elle Mulvaney takes a dark turn next week as she's on the lookout for men to torment.

Rape survivors are involved in a long-term, potentially lifelong, fight with their own trauma after their ordeal – and Amy Barlow will find it all out the hard way.

As ITV viewers will recall, the teen was raped by her pal Summer's former boyfriend Aaron during a drunken evening.

Although the assault was reported to the authorities, Aaron has been able to roam free around the cobbles for several weeks on end while Amy was spiralling, trying to come to terms with her attack.

Eventually, Aaron himself realised what he had done and left Weatherfield altogether.

Despite his exit, Amy continues to have a hard time next week and struggles to get back to a normal life without hoping to make other men pay for their crimes against women.

It all begins next week when Amy bumps into Kate in the café and, after recognising her from the drop in session, invites her back to No.1 for a chat.

Pushing her coursework to one side, she assures Kate she’d like to help.

Later on, Amy makes placards for an anti-spiking march due to take place in the Street.

Meanwhile, her father Steve MacDonald (Simon Gregson) confides in Summer Spellman (Harriet Bibby) how he’s worried about Amy and wishes she’d put the same focus into her degree.

As Amy, Summer, Evelyn and Cassie Plummer set off, Mason Radcliffe (Luca Toolan) and his cronies make disparaging remarks.

Amy loses it and goes to hit Mason with her placard but a police officer orders her to put it down.

To Summer’s horror, Amy argues with the officer before picking up a can of paint and spraying it all over the officer’s car.

Things spiral out of control when Amy is cuffed and arrested for criminal damage.

But in later scenes, Amy witholds the truth as she tells her parents Steve and Tracy (Kate Ford) that the march went well and she’s off to hand in her essay.

Amy assures her pal Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey) that she’s learnt her lesson and she’ll look for other ways to make herself heard and is off home to do some coursework.

But after coming across Dylan Wilson (Liam McCheyne), and urging him to stand up to Mason and not be a victim, a steely Amy ditches her plans for an early night.

In a nightclub, Amy watches as a guy spikes a woman’s drink.

Amy charges over, knocks the drink out of her hand and leads her to the ladies’.

But rather than leaving herself and staying out of trouble, Amy approaches Dan and flirtily introduces herself.

What is she up to?
