SUMMER Spellman has been secretly struggling with an eating disorder in recent weeks.
But in upcoming scenes of Coronation Street, her secret comes to light as Amy Barlow catches her red-handed.
The jig is up for Summer, played by actress Harriet Bibby.
Following her diabetes diagnosis, the Weatherfield teen has struggled to come to terms with her condition and has resorted to purging as she obsessively tries to control her weight.
This has led to her overworking and even refusing to feed herself.
Her loved ones are growing increasingly concerned as her struggle becomes more apparent.
La semaine prochaine, her guardian Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) is worried when he realises Summer has been up all night revising and warns her she’ll burn herself out, which could send her blood sugars all over the place.
