**This article contains discussion of pregnancy loss which some readers may find upsetting**
Summer Spellman suffered a devastating miscarriage in tonight's (Monday 28th November) Coronation Street.
The troubled teen had been planning on moving away with her boyfriend Aaron Sandford (James Craven) when she was invited by Mike (Tom Lorcan) and Esther Hargrave (Vanessa Hehir) to come and live with them.
While Summer (Harriet Bibby) was pleased by the prospect, she soon got distracted when Jacob Hay (Jack James Ryan) revealed to Summer that Aaron is facing more issues with his father's alcoholism once again.
Summer and Aaron left Mike and Esther to ask Aaron's father Eric (Craig Cheetham) about his drinking - and it was a tense confrontation.
During this face-off, Summer began to experience pain and then realised she was bleeding, and was later upset to learn that she had miscarried.
After this upsetting news, Summer and Aaron came back home to find Eric still in a drunken state and now covered in blood, prompting him to get aggressive at Aaron.
In response, Aaron forced his father to go to the hospital in a taxi to get treated, while an upset Summer received a text from Esther.
With the Hargraves still hoping for a child from Summer, she kept the miscarriage from them.
Later on, Aaron came back from the hospital with his father and revealed a difficult truth: he would have to move back in with Eric to try and support him.
In response, Summer asked Aaron to keep the miscarriage a secret from everyone so that she could continue to pretend that she was pregnant and get further payments from the Hargraves.
Summer hoped that the money from the couple could help pay for further treatment for Eric.
However, Aaron remained concerned at the prospect, aware that this would mean they were committing fraud and could lead to serious trouble - not to mention the hurt for Mike and Esther.
Will Summer continue with her deception?
Later in the week, Summer is sent home from work at Underworld as she is seen to be in pain and discomfort, but will she come clean about her traumatic experience?
As the week goes on and she spends more time with Mike and Esther, will the pressure be too much?
