AFTER finding out she was expecting her first child, Summer Spellman decided to have an abortion.
But she backtracks, next week in Coronation Street, opting to sell her baby as she grows desperate for cash.
Fans have already expressed their disappointment when first met with the storyline.
During Friday's trip to the cobbles, 18-year-old Summer, played by Harriet Bibby, seemed uncomfortable with the idea of selling her baby away to newcomers Esther and Mike.
However, when her boyfriend Aaron Sandford (portrayed by James Craven) asserts that his father Eric needs to go into rehab for his alcohol addiction, Summer begins to consider it.
This is because Eric's therapy would cost jaw-dropping sum – £10k, to be exact.

Knowing how difficult it will be for Aaron to get the money alone, Summer meets up with Mike and Esther at a private hospital and agrees to become their surrogate for cash.
The pair attend Summer's scan and promise they will provide her with all the emotional and financial support she needs.
Summer, on the other hand, only has Aaron and his father in mind and demands the £10k up front.
In later scenes, she meets up with Aaron and breaks the news that she's still pregnant.

Summer then drops the biggest bombshell she has – she will be giving up the baby to Mike and Esther in order to have the £10k he needs for his father to go into rehab.
This leaves the youngster facing the difficult parts of pregnancy and she soon sees Dr Gaddas' advice over her morning sickness.
When she returns home, she's overcome by a wave of nausea, throwing up in the sink – convincing her guardian Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) that her eating disorder has been triggered again.
