Coronation Street fans ‘scold’ Aaron’s heartbreaking secret after cryptic scene
Corrie viewers are convinced new character Aaron is hiding something on the ITV soap, after a moment with Summer Spellman
Coronation Street fans think they’ve figured out what’s going on with new character Aaron, after he was seen rushing on the ITV soap opera.
The teenager was seen talking with Summer Spellman on Monday night as she bravely opened up about her body image issues.
But he sparked concern when he suddenly looked uncomfortable, before storming off in the middle of a deep conversation.
Summer had met Aaron at a diabetes support group, where the couple bonded over their health issues.
The teens quickly met in recent scenes, as Summer told friends she had found someone she loved – leaving her ex Aadi Alahan gutted.
So when Summer sat down with Aaron to chat, she confessed her fears that she had rejected someone who truly loved her for someone who might not be interested.
But Aaron made it clear that he also wanted to date her and wasn’t put off by the fact that they were both part of the same support group.
Things took a turn, however, when Summer decided to come out bravely about her eating disorder, wanting to be honest with him if they were to embark on a romance.
As the conversation continued, Aaron looked panicked and almost like he was hiding something, before suddenly apologizing and storming off, leaving Summer alone.
Summer had told him, “I’m in trouble, I’m hanging up on myself.”
Aaron asked if she had body image issues, before adding, “Sorry, I’m just curious, you guys just met me, let’s talk about something else.”
Summer then confirmed, “I have an eating disorder. Suddenly I’m not gorgeous anymore. It’s the stress of studying all the time, I hate how I look, how I feel, everything is out of control. “
As she then detailed her eating disorder, Aaron looked uncomfortable before telling her, “Listen, I have to be somewhere.”
He got away, leaving Summer worried, but viewers think they know why he got away and what he might be hiding.
While some fans wondered if he was put off by Summer’s honesty, others wondered if he was facing a heartbreaking battle.
Taking to Twitter, one fan said: “I wonder if Aaron has an eating disorder himself.”
Another fan agreed, “Aaron has issues too then,” as a third wrote, “I think Aaron has an eating disorder too.”
A fourth fan commented, “I wonder if Aaron has one too?”
