Corrie lines up ’emotional’ storyline for Amy and Jacob with ‘long-lasting effects’
Later this year, two Coronation Street teenagers—Amy Barlow and Jacob Hay—will take center stage in a “emotional” brand-new plot for the ITV soap.
Soap actors Elle Mulvaney and Jack James Ryan revealed exclusively to The Mirror at the Inside Soap Awards 2022 that they were set to shoot “huge” scenes for a plot that will have “long-lasting” ramifications for the characters.
In subsequent scenes, viewers will see a “softer” side of former antagonist Jacob as the couple steps in to support Summer Spellman despite her pregnancy revelation.
With Christmas on the cobblestones shaping up to be a significant event for both characters, the couple must deal with a massive plot of their own.
We’ve hit the ground running now, Jack said, and there is a ton of stuff coming up.
It’s going to be emotional. It’s going to be a normal Christmas on the cobbles, which means it’s going to be drama-filled, heartwarming, exciting, and explosive, all of it. It’s going to be a big Christmas for us, which is fantastic, he continued.
Jack revealed that it would continue into the new year, with serious repercussions for Amy and Jacob.
It will be something that has enduring consequences and have a significant storyline, so it will undoubtedly continue into the next year, he said.
People are going to be so sick of us, the actress Elle joked.
In addition, the couple appears in scenes with Summer for her own major plotline. Elle tells us that Amy is first and foremost a good and loyal friend who will support Summer no matter what she decides since that is how she is.
“She values Summer and prioritizes her well-being. Whatever Summer decides, Amy will support her.
“Over the next few months, people will gradually see Jacob’s softer side,” Jack continued. I have some really lovely sequences with Summer for that plot, and we will see a lovely dynamic in their relationship as Jacob stands by Summer.
