Kelly (played by Millie Gibson) was charged following the murder of Seb (Harry Visinoni) which also left Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher) with serious injuries in heartbreaking scenes on the ITV soap. The Coronation Street troublemaker didn’t carry out the attack alone though, but manipulative Corey (Maximus Evans) claimed she was the ringleader in the assault. Kelly’s mum Laura (Kel Allen) is usually up to no good herself and is set to betray her teenage daughter under the guise of caring about her side of the story.

In upcoming episodes, Laura will be seen desperately trying to make money.

She calls at the Rovers and moans to Imran Habeeb (Charlie de Melo) she’s skint and can’t find a job.

Later, Carla Connor (Alison King) reveals she’s looking for a cleaner at the factory, and Imran bags the job for Laura.

But it seems this won’t be enough for the calculating Laura, who is after a quick money-making plan.

She soon gets one when Sean Tully (Antony Cotton) unwittingly sparks an idea.

He tells her about Fiz Brown’s (Jennie McAlpine) article in the Gazette and how they offered to pay her to do another one which leaves Laura intrigued.

In the prison visiting room, Laura quizzes Kelly about the night of the attack and assures her she can tell her anything.

The teenager admits to her mother she suffers from flashbacks of the incident.

At Laura’s request, Chris the journalist meets up with her in the empty factory.

Laura asks her if she’d be interested in doing a piece on Kelly and wonders how much she’d pay.

With her money-making scheme, Laura may not realise – or care – that selling the story could make things much worse for Kelly.

Anything published could jeopardise Kelly’s court case, and depending on what she reveals, could make Kelly look like the guilty one.

If word spreads about Kelly getting flashbacks of the night, it could indicate to people she must have been deeply involved in the vicious attack because she saw enough to leave her traumatised.

The scenes of the attack were never fully shown on the soap, so it is unknown who the main culprit was, but Corey began the verbal assault on Nina before things got violent.

Kelly’s case hasn’t gone to trial yet, but anything published about her will certainly cause more trouble.

If jury members hear about Kelly’s personal involvement from an article, they could go into the trial with the wrong perception of her.

It could mean the sentence she is given is increased based on Laura’s account about her daughter.

Kelly has always claimed that she witnessed the attack but wasn’t involved, and tried to stop Corey.

Even if this is the case, the article could sabotage her chances of getting a lighter sentence than Corey.

Pictures from the set have recently shown Seb actor Harry return, in what is believed to be a flashback episode to the night he was killed.

This will hopefully provide some answers as to who was truly behind his murder.

But with Kelly unable to prove her potential innocence, will viewers have to watch her facing an unjustified lengthy sentence if the article makes things worse?

Official spoilers also confirm that Sarah Platt (Tina O’Brien) later finds Laura in the factory with Chris.

She’s likely to be unhappy about Laura skiving off work to chat to a journalist – could her interrupting put a stop to the story being published?

With Coronation Street bosses recently confirming a big storyline on the horizon for Kelly, it’s likely that Laura will get the teenager in even more trouble than she’s already in.

Will Kelly’s foster dad Imran, who’s a solicitor, be able to help her at all?

Coronation Street continues on Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
