Abi is prepared to die herself to kill Corey in Coronation Street

Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) will stop at nothing to avenge Seb (Harry Visinoni), ands upcoming Coronation Street scenes will see her confront killer Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) with a gun.

The grieving mum had been hoping that justice would prevail during the trial and that Corey would be found guilty. 

But it was not to be, as the jury cleared him of any wrongdoing, in spite of the fact that he is actually guilty of the crime. 

Abi was heartbroken, and unable to return to normality in the wake of the verdict, she ended things with Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) and departed the eponymous street.

‘She knows that Kev and Jack love each other and have that connection and will always be okay,’ actress Sally Carman told Metro.co.uk. ‘Whereas Seb is dead and this is the last thing she can do as a mother to prove she loves him and get justice.’

Abi is very much on a mission to exact her own brand of justice, and upcoming scenes will see her return to the cobbles with a gun in her possession.

‘I was like, wow okay, why not?,’ explained Sally, referring to her reaction when she first learned Abi would acquire a firearm. ‘I really believe she is one of the few characters who can go to extremes – she has all the feels but not in any order.

‘Bringing a gun into it isn’t Cool Hand Luke for her, it’s flawed to the highest degree. She’s so emotional, there’s no James Bond element. She’s an absolute headcase. She is heartbroken, flawed woman who has lost the thing she loved most in the world.’

While Abi is hellbent on revenge, Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher) is trying to move on, so you can imagine her horror when she discovers what Abi is up to! Nina will subsequently sets out to stop her, but with a storm brewing, one can’t help but wonder if she’ll be too late!


‘If anyone could get her to see sense, it would be Nina,’ said Sally. ‘Abi is so infuriating with things like this. The more people try to get through to her, the more she sticks to her guns. And she hasn’t got much time. She has bonded with Nina but every single feeling she has ever had in her life is being channelled to Seb.’

The scenes in question will air during the ITV serial drama’s Super Soap Week, and thus fans can expect shock twists, huge showdowns and stunts aplenty.

In fact, the cobbles are home to a massive thunderstorm, which results in several of the soap’s finest ending up in the sewers below!

Abi is one of those residents, and it’s at this point that Corey gets his hands on the gun!

‘The initial mindset of someone damaged and not thinking straight then you add a murderer and a sinkhole into the mix, she doesn’t know what she is thinking,’ said Sally. ‘This gun goes about a bit so there’s a chance to have your say and have these discussions. It shows how little regard at this point Abi has for her own life so what can he do?’

As Sally hinted at, Abi is prepared to lose her life in her quest for revenge, but will she end up dead at Corey’s hands? Or could the incoming water result in her meeting a tragic end?

‘I think we could [see Abi in danger]!’ added Sally. ‘There’s not enough drama with the gun so let’s add a few more elements! Filming all of that, what I have seen is just fantastic. What’s coming up is so exciting.

One to watch: Monday October 18 at 8:30pm on ITV.
