She posted a picture of Corey actor Maximus Evans on set in a smart suit – from the court case, it appears.

It showed him posing in his all black suit and tie combo.

The fan told The Sun: “It felt like a huge spoiler to me and I was shocked she put it up!

“It basically gave away that Corey would end up in court.

“As soon as Seb and Nina were attacked I was really worried one of them would die – it’s the only reason he’d be up in court.”

According to the newspaper, Tanisha took the post down shortly after posting it.

Moment Seb Franklin dies in Coronation Street

Coronation Street bosses managed to keep the news of Seb’s death a secret until it broadcast – and it left fans devastated.

As soon as Seb and Nina were attacked I was really worried one of them would die – it’s the only reason he’d be up in court.

In harrowing scenes Abi was told her son had died.

“Sebastian failed the brain stem tests,” the doctor told her.

“His brain is no longer sending messages to his body. We were increasing the amount of organ support for Seb but I’m afraid it wasn’t working and his body has shut down.

“There was nothing more we could do and his heart has stopped. I’m so very sorry, he has died.”
