In tonight’s hour-long episode of Coronation Street (9.00pm see our TV Guide for full listings) Abi Franklin realises that she and Kelly may not be so different.

Abi listens as Aadi rails at Dev for making Kelly homeless again. When Aadi reveals that she’s turned to drugs, even Abi’s taken aback at how low she’s sunk to cope with her troubles. 

At her drugs support group, Abi shoots Kelly a look of pure hatred as she describes her troubled upbringing, how she’s done some terrible things and used drugs as an escape route. 

Feeling a flicker of empathy, Abi then bears her soul to the group, telling them about her past and what happened to Seb. Back on the street, Gary suggests to Maria that they could offer Kelly a roof over her head. Will Maria agree?

Abi is shocked by her new feelings towards Kelly.
