Samia and Amy Talk Trolling

Samia Longchambon has joined forces with Love Island’s Amy Hart to shine a light on the issue of internet trolling.

The pair met up on the cobbles to film an exclusive video for the soap’s YouTube channel talking through their own personal experiences with anti-social media and the emotional damage caused by online hate.

On her collaboration with Coronation Street, Amy said:  “I am a massive Corrie fan, and was delighted to be invited to Coronation Street to talk about this hugely important topic with Samia - who plays one of my fave characters, Maria. 

I think it’s imperative that soap operas cover trolling and online bullying issues, as it shows the devastating effects to a mass audience of all ages. The sad truth is that trolls are all ages, genders and from all walks of life. I should know, as I have been sent abusive and upsetting messages by a whole range of people. 

 Hopefully this powerful storyline will help break the negative trolling culture, and in turn may even save someone’s life.”
