Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) has had a pretty tough time in Coronation Street recently. Her son Seb (Harry Visinoni) turned his back on her after she betrayed him when he attempted to get custody of his twin siblings, she was arrested for theft and criminal damage instead of Seb after he got angry and trashed Tracy Barlow’s (Kate Ford) flower shop but now, there’s something a bit more positive on the horizon for Abi in the form of a new romance!
Abi starts her new job at a rival garage but when she drops a car bonnet on the boss’ hand, he fires her.
Abi calls at the garage and offers to help but Kevin (Michael Le Vell) and Tyrone (Alan Halsall) enjoy winding her up, completely aware that she’s been fired from her new job. Kevin chucks overalls at Abi and tells her if she can keep her fists under control, she’s got her job back. Abi is thrilled.
Abi begins work back at the garage and Kevin suggests they celebrate with dinner at the Bistro. Noting that Abi finds Kevin amusing, Sally (Sally Dynevor) wonders if she could be the one for him.
Could Abi and Kevin be made for each other? Or will Sally poke her nose in a little too much (once again) and cause things to go badly between them both?
