| Updated:

Coronation Street viewers were left in tears when Seb Franklin died tonight in a shocking twist.

In Wednesday’s double bill of Corrie (May 5) Seb and Nina were viciously attacked by Corey Brent, Kelly Neelan and their friends.

The couple were taken to hospital. Whilst Nina went in for surgery, Seb was taken for a series of tests.

In tonight’s episodes of the soap (Friday, May 7) a nurse explained to Abi that Seb’s brain stem tests were inconclusive so they repeated them.

Meanwhile Nina remembered seeing Corey before the attack, but couldn’t remember who attacked her.

Later, the nurse came back and told Abi that Seb failed the brain stem tests. His body has shut down, his heart stopped and he had died.

Abi was heartbroken and fell to the floor in tears, learning her son was gone.

Soon Kevin made a call to Seb’s former landlady and friend Eileen to tell her the devastating news.
