Abi Franklin looks set to face losing everything in Coronation Street when the blame lands at her door for a crash that leaves someone dead. And its all thanks to vengeful Tracy Barlow.
Having believed that Steve McDonald slept with Abi and not Leanne, Tracy spitefully sabotaged Michelle Connors car in the garage in the hope that Abi would get sacked. But when Michelle is in a car chase, pursued by drug dealer Ronan, a devastating crash leaves at least one fatality.
With the police on the hunt for answers, survivors Michelle and Ali are questioned. But when the police make some findings and then interview Kevin Webster at the garage, he explains that Abi was the one who serviced the car.
When Tracy finds out that Abi could be in the frame, she is bound to be torn over whether to come clean about what she has done or let her friend take the fall – but Abi stands to lose a lot if she is arrested.
Not only could she end up in prison but she could lose access to the twins forever and it might well trigger a drinks and drugs relapse. Recent pictures showed Abi looking at her kids with sadness from afar while downing a bottle of vodka.
Is this proof that Tracys actions will have terrible consequences for her?
