Corrie’s Abi Franklin star teases Seb’s Christmas gift from beyond the grave after letter twist

December 23, 2021

Coronation Street's Abi Franklin star Sally Carman has teased a "gorgeous" Christmas surprise for her character on the ITV soap.

Only recently, Kevin Webster found a mysterious letter in Seb Franklin's belongings, who was tragically murdered earlier this year, and was soon left gobsmacked over a discovery.

After telling best friend Tyrone Dobbs to keep it a secret from Abi, who is still mourning her son Seb's death, he then made a mysterious phone call as he appeared to arrange a surprise.

Teasing what soap watchers can expect from the festive storyline, actress Sally, 46, who plays Abi, said: "Christmas Day is tricky for her. She is not allowing herself to think about anything other than Jack [Webster, her stepson]."

And after Abi has a "meltdown" over the Christmas turkey going wrong with Kevin insisting all that matters is that everyone is together, there's a "knock at the door".

Sally continued: "She doesn't want to see anyone but Kevin goes to the door and returns with a present for her – and what is more it is a present that Seb arranged before he died, and that Kevin has seen through and organised.

"For once Abi is lost for words and can't believe that Seb has sent this present from the grave. She is crying and it is a really gorgeous moment after the year she has had."

Soap watchers have been desperate to know what is in the letter with some fans predicting that it could be from Abi's twins, who live in Australia.

One person said: "Wonder if Abi's twins are coming back for Christmas? #Corrie."

A different account put: "Could Seb's letter be from Australia. Abis other kids ?#Corrie."

While another follower commented: "So either Seb’s left a note for Abi that had bad news on it or something like he’s a dad or he’s arranged a Christmas present for her. #Corrie #CoronationStreet @itvcorrie."
