In tonight’s episode (Friday, August 21) Abi was taken to hospital. Kevin learnt of Abi’s accident and told her son Seb the reason for her missing saying farewell to her kids.

At the hospital, Abi wanted to go home. But the nurse advised they could manage her pain better if she stayed in.

Seb gave Abi a farewell card that Charlie and Lexi had made for her and she broke down in tears.

As she sobbed in her bed, she told the nurse she needed something to take the pain away. The mechanic quickly noticed a cart of medicine by her bed and took a vial of morphine.

But Peter Barlow spotted her stealing the pain relief and warned her to put it back. However before she got the chance to, Kevin arrived.
