Corey Brent is desperate to keep his killer secret safe in Monday's first episode of Coronation Street (7.30 pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

Despite having confessed to Abi that he killed her son Seb Franklin in cold blood while she pointed a gun at him down in the Victorian sewers recently, Corey is still trying to maintain his innocence.

But Nina knows the truth about what Corey did that night and is still determined to prove that he is the one with Seb's blood on his hands, despite him being found not guilty in a court of law. 

Having been searching for clues, Nina is thrilled to have tracked down Stu, a homeless man who has Corey's backpack, the very same bag that Corey stuffed his bloodstained clothes into and threw away the night Seb was attacked. 

Nina tells Abi that they have found Corye's bloodstained clothes and handed them in to the police, and they are finally given hope that justice might be served.
