Abi faces temptation...
Abi’s facing A tough choice when she finds drugs At the garage!
STORY SO FAR
Abi Franklin is on a mission to show the world that she’s a changed woman. She’s got herself a job at the garage, she’s wheedled her way into Eileen Grimshaw’s house – and she’s so determined to get her twin children back she’s jumping through every hoop that social services have put in front of her.
But some people are having trouble believing she’s turned over a new leaf…
Abi’s in the garage when Mr Fitzgerald from Weatherfield High drops off a minibus to be repaired. But there’s a surprise in store… and it’s not a leftover packed lunch from a geography field trip!
‘As she starts work, she’s shocked to find a bag of drugs in the glove box, which is a pretty big temptation for a former addict,’ reveals our Corrie source. ‘Abi, though, does the right thing and, when an edgy Mr Fitzgerald returns claiming that he left his wallet in the bus, she refuses to let him in... because she’s already called the police.
‘When the cops show up, though, Tyrone is convinced Abi’s involved. But he feels bad when they nick Mr Fitzgerald instead.’
He’s not the only one jumping to conclusions, though. When Steve spots Abi with the police, he tells Eileen.
And, when Abi finds out, she’s furious.
She points out that she was just giving a statement to the police and now Steve could have ruined her chance to get her kids back if word gets out. Oops!
They may be locking horns at the moment, but there’s definite chemistry between Steve and Abi. He wants to make amends for what he’s done, so it looks like they might be spending more time together in the future.
Could their bickering eventually turn into flirting? As we report opposite, with Eileen on a mission to split up Steve and Tracy, it could just happen…
Abi finds drugs in the minibus and calls the police. But Tyrone questions her involvement…
