Summer Spellman (played by Harriet Bibby) has been caught up in the centre of an upskirting storyline on Coronation Street. In scenes yet to air on the ITV soap, Summer is set to learn the perverted photographer who targeted her seems to have taken inappropriate pictures of other teenage girls. Will 16-year-old Summer decide to stand up to the sex offender by starting a protest against him?
The teenager is due to take the issue to social media after discovering more female students at Weatherfield High School are said to have also been sexually harassed.
It comes after Summer was mortified when she found Max Turner (Paddy Bever) was looking at an upskirting photograph of her after running into him in Victoria Garden.
But as her friend Amy Barlow (Elle Mulvaney) discovered, Summer wasn’t the only student to have gone through abuse.
In upcoming scenes, Amy tells Summer she’s been doing some investigation work about the scandal.
Summer tries to convince Amy to drop the matter altogether, but it’s clear she is on a mission for justice.
At the school, a crowd gathers to watch Amy spray painting the words ‘Stop Protecting Sex Offenders’ onto the side of a building.
Deputy head Orla Crawshaw (Carla Mendonça) summons Amy and her mother Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) to a meeting and explains she has no choice but to suspend Amy for wilfully vandalising school property.
When Amy reveals that she’s been suspended for the vandalism, Summer’s gobsmacked.
Tracy blames her daughter’s punishment on Summer for failing to report the upskirting incident in the first place.
Feeling guilty about Amy’s suspension, Summer meets with her friends in Speed Daal and shows them an open letter she’s penned on her Instagram page in support of Amy.
The following morning Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) tells Summer she should check her phone as her letter has gone viral and he’s extremely proud of her.
However, Summer then receives a message from Mrs Crawshaw summoning her to a meeting.
When Amy is made aware of the meeting, she insists she’ll go with Summer to support her.
Mrs Crawshaw thanks Summer for bringing the upskirting incident to her attention and assures the girls she’ll be talking to the board of governors about a policy change within the school.
However, the girls are less than impressed when they realise the school expects the female students to wear shorts under their skirts.
So Summer and Amy take the matter into their own hands and warn the other students not to attend Daniel Osborne’s (Rob Mallard) class.
Could the girls have ditched class to lead a protest against sexual offenders?
If so, just how many other teenagers are marching with them to make a stand against upskirting?
And how will Mrs Crawshaw react? Perhaps more action needs to be taken by the governors.
Coronation Street airs on ITV on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm.
