FANS of Coronation Street were left shocked by Tracy Barlow’s reaction to discovering her daughter Amy had been raped.

Amy, played by Elle Mulvaney, finally admitted the truth to her mum Tracy (Kate Ford) in heartbreaking scenes on the ITV soap opera.

Viewers were shocked at her calm demeanour

Tracy’s reaction left viewers of the show utterly puzzled as she appeared to take a different approach than her usual behaviour upon discovering a shocking piece of information.

In a stark contrast to her usual self, Tracy listened on calmly to Amy and established the facts of the situation as opposed to being instantly filled with rage over Aaron Sandford’s (James Craven) actions.

Viewers watched the harrowing scenes earlier this year when after getting extremely drunk together, things took a sinister turn between Amy and Aaron.

After sharing a drunken kiss, Amy informed Aaron that she felt sick and she rolled over on the bed as she appeared to pass out from her intoxicated state.

Waking up the next day, Amy realised Aaron had raped her while she had been unable to consent.

Recalling the ordeal to her mum, Amy said: “He was someone knew, someone I trusted. I never expected to be raped in my own bed by a mate.”

After Tracy told Steve about Amy’s ordeal, Steve was left furious as he wanted to go after Aaron but Tracy informed him that wasn’t for the best.

Tracy agreed with daughter Amy as she said:  “She’s right we need to go to the police and let them deal with it.”

Fans were left in awe at Tracy’s behaviour and the fact she did not fly off the handle with Aaron.

Online, one fan penned: “#Corrie. This scene between Amy and Tracey is powerful. Give @ElleJMulvaney all the awards. She is incredible in this scene.” 

Another added: “So proud of Amy for opening up to Tracy about her rape ordeal.”

However, fans were quick to pick up on Tracy’s behaviour as they questioned how she remained calm.

One said: “Tracy being unfathomably sensible about this.”

A second echoed: “Well, Tracy took that well considering Steve will blow.”

Before another wrote: “YES Amy, well done for saying it. I’m shocked that Tracy is keeping calm though that’s not a real Tracy reaction.”

While a fourth declared: “What has happened to corrie? the Tracy Barlow from years ago would have already got the heavy ornament ready for the lad who raped her daughter…”
