Coronation Street viewers saw Kevin Webster meet new character Tez, however they’ve noticed he looks a lot like another Corrie character.

Tez is Abi’s ex and the father of Seb Franklin, who was murdered this year.

After not hearing from Abi and discovering she had taken money from their joint account, Kevin set out to find her.
