Coronation Street: When did Debbie Webster originally live on the cobbles?

| Updated:

Coronation Street character Debbie Webster returned to Weatherfield last year to work with Ray on a new development.

Over the last few months, Debbie and Ray have been working to get the cobbles demolished so they can build on top of it.

But in the last few weeks, things have started to fall apart with the development, especially as Ray’s crimes have been exposed.

In tonight’s episode of the ITV soap (Monday, January 25) Abi remembered that Debbie was in the Bistro when Ray drugged her.

Debbie told Abi about what it was like when she first moved to the cobbles.

She said that she, Kevin and their dad Bill moved to the cobbles a few years after Debbie and Kevin’s mum died.

Debbie explained that she always had to do everything her mother did on top of going to school. This resulted in her failing her exams.

She said although she loves her dad and brother she couldn’t talk to them about anything personal and felt a weight lifting when she moved away from home.

So when she got the opportunity to demolish the street and build something on top of it, she took it.

But when did Debbie originally live on the cobbles?

Debbie ended up failing her exams at school. She intended to leave school without any qualifications but Bill insisted she resit her exams.

Debbie soon made Bill see that he heaped too many responsibilities on her at home and didn’t have time to commit to her studies.

He agreed to let her leave school if she found a job and almost immediately she got a job at Jim’s café.
