Who is Jack Webster in Coronation Street?

Jack Webster is the son of Kevin Webster and Molly Dobbs, born September 6 2010.

He is the half-brother of Rosie Webster, Sophie Webster and the late Jake Webster.

Molly was married to Kevin’s best friend Tyrone Dobbs, however she had been having an affair with Kevin and fell pregnant.

Tyrone believed Molly’s son was his and when he was born they named him Jack, after Jack Duckworth.

However after Jack’s birth, Kevin stole one of his dummies and a DNA test proved he was Kevin’s son.

In December 2010, Molly admitted to Tyrone he wasn’t Jack’s father and went to leave Weatherfield.

However when Molly took Jack into the corner shop, a tram derailed and crashed into the shop.

Jack was rescued. Kevin’s wife and Molly’s friend Sally went into the rubble and she admitted to Sally that Kevin is Jack’s father.

Just moments later Molly died and later Tyrone found out his best friend was Jack’s father.

Jack went to live with Tyrone. He is now 10-years old, due to turn 11 next month.
