If there's one character in Soap Land who's had more than her fair share of drama and devastation, it's Abi Franklin (played by Sally Carman).


The Coronation Street favourite has truly been through it all, with the recent loss of her son, Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni) causing more unimaginable pain, setting off a tirade of trauma for her.

However, according to Carman, poor Abi will have a reprieve over the coming weeks on the cobbles.

Speaking exclusively to RadioTimes.com at the British Soap Awards 2022 about whether Abi would have some respite, Carman explained: "I think so, I think that is coming. My scripts are quite minimal at the moment which means there might be a bit of peace and quiet.

"What I've done recently is quite happy stuff, so hopefully!"

But will she get back with Kevin for a happy ever after? "Maybe... yes. I'd like that," teased Carman.

As we know too well, peace and quiet won't last long in soap land, so it's only a matter of time before Abi's plunged into another dramatic episode.

At the moment on the soap, she's wrapped up in a custody battle for her son with Imran (Charlie de Melo), Alfie.

Will they be reunited? Only time will tell.
