Amy Barlow (Elle Mulvaney) has broken down in tears on tonight's Coronation Street after keeping her termination a secret from mum Tracy (Kate Ford) and dad Steve (Simon Gregson).


Wednesday's episode saw Bethany accompany Amy to the clinic after the pregnant teen made the decision to have an abortion, telling her friend that she thought it was for the best.

But when Amy returned home following the procedure, she discovered that Steve and Tracy have put an offer in on a flat in Victoria Street in the belief that it will make a great family home. Locking herself in the bathroom, Amy then got emotional and wiped away a tear, her mother and father still unaware as to what she's done.
