Viewers first saw Alina in April when Seb went to do some jobs at the Sparkle Lounge nail bar.

Seb quickly fell for Alina but became suspicious of her off behaviour and her need to keep boss and 'landlord' Rachel happy.

He soon discovered Alina was living in the back of the salon and the workers were all trafficked.

It wasn't long before Seb found out his housemate and Eileen's boyfriend, Jan, was involved with the human traffickers.

Eventually the police were called and Rachel and her husband Nikolai were arrested.

It was also revealed that Jan was a police informant and was working to help bring the human traffickers down.

Alina decided to go back home to Romania, but it was recently rumoured she would be coming back.

It looks like that return will be soon!

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
