Amy spots Mia, Aaron's ex, at the garage and approaches her, telling Mia that Aaron raped her. A shocked Mia accuses Amy of lying, while Amy assures Abi Webster (Sally Carman-Duttine) that she is telling the truth.

Mia later confronts Aaron over Amy's allegation, and he tells her that he and Amy had sex once, but Amy cried rape before changing her mind and the police dropped the case. Mia is left appalled that Amy is apparently dragging Aaron's name through the mud, while DS Swain (Vicky Myers) visits Amy and informs her that a serious allegation of harassment has been made about her.

Furious at the injustice of it all, Amy starts to write up her whole awful ordeal, and dad Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) encourages her to post her document online.

Amy does so, and as the week continues, Abi and Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall) tell Aaron that they've read Amy's online post and he can find another job. Aaron's dad Eric (Craig Cheetham) vows revenge on Amy and announces that he's suing her for libel. Amy then gets a letter from Eric's solicitor which orders her to take down her post or she'll be sued.

Steve advises his daughter to stick to her guns, while solicitor Dee Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) warns that a libel case could cost a fortune. Amy's mum Tracy (Kate Ford) insists they'll fight it all the way, but later she and Steve realise they may have to sell their businesses to fund the legal fees.

Aaron and Eric meet their solicitor who warns them of the risks of going to court. Tracy arranges a valuation for the florists, but will the clan go ahead with the case? And will Aaron ever own up to what he did to Amy?

2. Craig catches Faye with Jackson?

When Miley (Frankie-Jae Simmonds) tells mum Faye how much she's going to miss her when she and dad Jackson move to Slough, Faye hides her emotions. But Miley pressures Faye, wanting her to move with them.

Meanwhile, Craig tells Faye that he's been given a secondment with CID. Faye decides to plan a surprise party for Craig to celebrate his success, and ropes in his mum Beth Sutherland (Lisa George), her stepmum Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dynevor) and Izzy Armstrong (Cherylee Houston) to help. But later, Jackson and Miley persuade Faye to help with the youngster's family tree project, with Faye's brother Gary Windass (Mikey North) also joining them.

Faye basks in Jackson's praise, and Gary spots the moment between the pair. Still, Faye forges ahead with Craig's party plans – but Gary quizzes his sister on how she really feels. Faye says that Jackson tried to kiss her, but it's Craig she loves and Jackson won't accept it. Gary isn't convinced, and he lures Faye and Jackson to the furniture shop to get them to talk.

Jackson tells Faye that she's making a big mistake in choosing Craig over him, while at the Bistro, Craig arrives to find everyone gathered for him – except Faye. He calls her and hears her phone ringing at the furniture shop, heading over as Faye urges Jackson to hide. Will Craig catch Faye and Jackson together?

David visits Max at the Secure Training Centre and questions him about his mental state. Max works out that David has been speaking to Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) after the teen left the teacher a message on his phone. Max is furious when David admits he watched his video, and David later tells Daniel that he's worried for Max.

Back at the STC, Daniel gives Max his phone and explains there's a message on it from David, which Max listens to later. Max admits to Daniel that he's watched David's message for him but hasn't recorded a reply. Will Max be able to open up to his dad, or is their bond too damaged?

4. Daisy's plan to help Ryan spirals

Daniel urges Daisy to come clean to Ryan about posing as Crystal in their text exchanges, so Daisy pays Ryan a visit. But, still recovering from a new setback after his acid attack ordeal, Ryan makes it clear that he doesn't need her pity when he's got Crystal in his corner.

This makes it harder for Daisy to own up to her lies, and as Carla Barlow (Alison King) goes to see Ryan later in the week, Ryan is happy to receive another message from 'Crystal'. He admits to Carla that he really likes Crystal and hopes that she feels the same way about him. Will Ryan ever learn that it's actually Daisy he's been talking to?

5. Chesney keeps Gemma in the dark over money

As Linda Hancock (Jacqueline Leonard) arrives and thanks Gemma for inviting her to the wedding, Linda offers to pay for the catering. This leaves mother of the bride Bernie (Jane Hazlegrove) fuming, while Gemma is thrilled.

As the plans continue, Gemma urges Chesney to head down to the local charity shop where Roy has told them that there are a couple of suits that should fit Ches and son Joseph (William Flanagan) for the big day. Linda later sees Ches and Joseph wearing the terrible suits and offers to buy them new ones.

Just as the boys are admiring their new outfits, Gemma arrives home. Will she find out that Chesney has gone behind her back to accept Linda's offer?

6. Ed is suspicious of secretive Paul

Coronation Street: Paul on the phone

As Ed puts pressure on Paul to return to work as a builder, Paul is evasive – which leaves Ed wondering what's going on. But little do Ed or Paul's loved ones know that he has been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.

Only Ed's daughter, Paul's friend Dee Dee, is aware of his condition, and she's been trying to convince him to confide in his partner Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank). Paul wants to wait until after sister Gemma's wedding, but how long will it be before he's forced to reveal the tragic truth?

7. Roy spots Hope's harsh behaviour


Eliza Woodrow (Savannah Kunyo) reminds Hope and Sam Blakeman (Jude Riordan) that her birthday party is coming up, and Eliza's granddad Stu Carpenter (Bill Fellows) entices Liam Connor and Jake Windass to attend.

But as Stu leaves, Hope warns the boys that they won't enjoy the party. Roy spots the exchange and wonders why Hope is being so unkind, but we suspect this is more of Hope's jealousy at play over her bond with Sam...
