Coronation Street has some tension lined up between Summer Spellman and Billy Mayhew next week, following the surprising news of Summer’s pregnancy.
In tonight’s episode (October 19), it’s revealed that Summer is pregnant. Billy hears from Paul that Summer is expecting, after he accidentally lets the news slip.
In scenes airing next week, Summer tells her boyfriend Aaron that she has made an appointment with Dr Gaddas, as she doesn’t intend to go ahead with the pregnancy. After seeing the doctor, though, Summer admits that she can’t help but feel upset.

Newcomer Esther tells Summer that she and her husband Mike could adopt the baby since they’re unable to conceive. When she learns about the planned termination, Esther offers Summer money in an attempt to change her mind.
It’s not long before Billy shows up. He’s horrified to learn about Esther’s intentions, and orders her to leave.
Billy then tells Summer that he disapproves of abortion, and an upset Summer heads to her room.
Not wanting Summer to feel isolated during this difficult time, Todd speaks to Billy and tells him that he must support Summer. Will Billy take Todd’s advice on board?

Previously speaking about Paul, Todd and Billy’s differing parenting styles and approaches to Summer’s pregnancy, actress Harriet Bibby said: “Paul finds it all out first and he’s probably the most understanding dad in the sense that he sees her as a young woman and he’s not constantly worried about her, unlike Billy.
“But then Todd and Billy find out and it’s just like panic stations, it’s kind of the opposite reaction, it’s all we need to make a decision.
“They want to figure it all out now rather than come to terms with it and let her make a decision in her own time.”
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
