Coronation Street character Amy Barlow will be the victim of drink spiking, it has been reported.
According to The Sun, Amy will end up in hospital as her parents, Tracy and Steve, suspect she has taken a drug overdose.
A source told the publication: “Amy ends up in a bad way in hospital and Tracy and Steve fear the worst.
“They’re convinced she’s on drugs – but she’s adamant she didn’t take them knowingly.
“It soon becomes clear she’s been the victim of spiking but Steve and Tracy don’t accept it.

“They are convinced Jacob is leading their daughter astray and soon the police are investigating.”
Entertainment Daily has contacted Coronation Street reps for comment on this.
Coronation Street: Amy Barlow and Jacob Hay
It has also been revealed that Amy will have a romance with Jacob Hay, who roped Simon Barlow into delivering drugs for Harvey last year.
Recently Amy ran into Jacob and warned him to keep away from her and the street. But it seems the two will end up spending some time together.
Speaking about Jacob to Entertainment Daily and other media at a recent press event, Corrie boss Iain MacLeod said: “We also really like the idea of the story that we’re going to go on to tell with him which is pairing him up with someone that’s historically quite well-behaved and wouldn’t say boo to a goose.
“She’s quite sensible given her genetic provenance and that’s Amy Barlow.
“We thought how would Tracy and Steve react to her suddenly in a romantic relationship with possibly the most unsuitable boyfriend they’ve ever heard of?”

However Tracy and Steve aren’t impressed with Amy’s new boyfriend.
He continued: “I think it’s a story that probably most parents of teenage children will completely relate to and again it’s very, very funny as Steve try with Tracy try with increasing failure to strategize this and go ‘what are we going to do. We’ll try reverse psychology, we’ll try freezing her out, we’ll try cutting her off financially’ and all these things just make it worse and worse and worse to a comedy effect.
“In the end they have to bite the bullet and try and get along with this lad.
