DESPERATE for cash, Summer Spellman agreed to be Mike and Esther’s surrogate – until she had a miscarriage.
The Coronation Street teen is caught up by her lies next week but the couple respond with another shocking offer.
While she initially aimed to get an abortion, the eighteen-year-old played by Harriet Bibby eventually agreed to help Mike and Esther.
The couple were ready to pay her £10k to convince her to keep the baby and let them raise it.
But tragedy struck later on when Summer had a miscarriage, although she kept on making them think she was still pregnant.
Coming up next week on ITV, Mike and Esther both insist on dropping her at the hospital for her scan but they agree to wait for her outside.
But when Summer and her boyfriend Aaron Sandford (James Craven) play for time in the hospital, Mike suddenly appears.
He announces he should attend the scan with Summer – forcing the young couple to tell him the truth about the baby.
How will Mike and Esther react to the news?
While that remains to be seen, Summer is likely to experience money issues later on as she grows desperate to raise the £10k back.
