What happens on Coronation Street on Boxing Day?

Grieving mum Abi Webster struggles with her rage towards Kelly Neelan this Boxing Day.

The mechanic is furious to find Kelly has left flowers in Seb’s memorial garden.

Spotting her enjoying a meal in the bistro with Dev and Aadi, Abi plonks herself at a nearby table and stares at Kelly with pure hatred.

Kelly’s unnerved and Dev messages Kevin about Abi’s behaviour.

Husband Kevin arrives and tries to reason with her, pointing out that terrorising Kelly will do no good, but Abi’s unrepentant, vowing that soon she won’t have to worry about Kelly.

Is she planning her own murder?

Over the road, things are getting better for Nick Tilsley when he overhears son Sam speaking.

He’s overjoyed that he’s finally broken his silence.

However, when Sam discovers that Nick was eavesdropping, the dad worries they’re back to square one.

After receiving her surprise from Carla that allows her to open up, Nina Lucas begins talking to girlfriend Asha Alahan about what she’s going through.

Nina explains to Asha how she’s suffering from anxiety and lives in constant fear that something bad will happen to the people she loves.

Asha suggests they sync their phones so she’ll always know where she is.

But is that the best idea?

Eileen tells her she’s deranged but Gail’s genuinely puzzled by her ingratitude.
