He soon discovered Alina, along with the other workers, were victims of human trafficking and Alina was living in the back of the salon.

After the truth came out and the police raided the salon, the workers, including Alina, were taken to a safe house.

So with her returning later this year it looks like their love story is far from over.

It also came out that Eileen and Seb's housemate Jan was a police informant trying to help bring down the human traffickers.

Eventually Alina told Seb she would be going home to Romania and didn't know if or when she would be returning.

Heartbroken, Seb said goodbye to Alina.

However it looks like she could be making her way back to the cobbles soon.

According to The Daily Star a source said: "Alina's harrowing story was one of the biggest of the year and Ruxandra's performance during some of the darker scenes was heartbreaking.

"She proved very popular with viewers and everyone was gutted that Alina and Seb didn't get their happy ending.
