Abi Franklin confesses everything to Kevin in Wednesday's first episode of Coronation Street (7.30 pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

After Debbie and Jack discovered the truth about her plan to kill Corey, Abi knows it is only a matter of time before Kevin finds out. 

And with Debbie demanding that Abi leaves Kevin or she'll tell him all about the gun and the letter, Abi knows that if she wants any chance of Kevin talking to her again she needs to come clean, and fast. 

Abi assures Debbie that she is going to tell Kevin the truth, and promises that she will then be out of their lives, convinced that he won't want anything to do with her once he learns she tried to kill Corey. 

Kevin is shocked to get home and find Abi packing her bags, and she explains that she stole his money, bought a gun, and planned to murder Corey for killing Seb, but she didn't go through with it because Nina talked her out of it.

Later, after he has had time to recover from the shock of Abi's confession, Kevin finds her in Seb's memorial garden and tells her that he loves her more than anything and still wants to get married!

Abi is stunned, convinced their future would be over once she told Kevin about her plans to kill Corey, and she's even more surprised when he then tells her to meet him at the hotel where he will be waiting to marry her.

But is marrying Kevin still what Abi wants? Or will she call off her wedding at the last minute?
