Seb Franklin (played by Harry Visinoni) made his heartbreaking exit from Coronation Street in May when he was brutally killed trying to protect his girlfriend, Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher). Recent weeks on the ITV soap have seen Nina and her boyfriend’s mother, Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) trying to come to terms with their loss. Despite their grief, the pair are hellbent on getting justice for Seb and neither will stop until the culprits are behind bars. However, in an unexpected twist, Seb will make a return to the cobbles next week to finally expose his attacker

Currently, the two main suspects being charged with Seb’s murder are teenagers Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) and Kelly Neelan (Millie Gibson).

Nina has always believed Corey was responsible for her boyfriend’s tragic death.

Although, due to the extent of her own injuries sustained in the attack, Roy Cropper’s (David Neilson) niece cannot remember what happened.

However, in scenes due to air next week, viewers will finally see what happened on that fateful night through a series of flashbacks.

Ever since Seb died, fans have come up with a number of theories as to who they think killed the teenager.

Despite Corey and Kelly being put in the frame for murder, some fans have come to the conclusion either Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey) or Summer Spellman (Harriet Bibby) could be the real killer.

However, speaking ahead of his return, the actor who plays Seb has teased his attacker may not be who the audience thinks.

Harry began: “The viewer thinks they know what happened and who they believe.”

“But the audience needs to see exactly what happened to know if justice is done in the courtroom. That is what gives it the drama.”


He continued: “Thanks to these scenes the audience has the advantage of knowing the complete truth and knowing exactly who needs to be brought to justice.”

Speaking about the aftermath of his death, the actor added: “I did watch the aftermath and I thought Mollie and Sally were exceptional.

“I am looking forward to watching the build-up to the trial, I don’t know the outcome so I will be rooting for justice for Seb and Nina.

“And I am looking forward to watching the flashback scenes as it is quite unusual for Corrie to do something like that.”

Discussing what it was like to go back and film the flashback scenes, Harry said: “I came back especially to film the scenes a couple of months after my final day on set.

“I had to make sure I didn’t look too different. I had wanted to have a really different haircut when I left but I had to keep Seb’s long hair.

“I was back for over a week to film the scenes. I always knew that I would be coming back to film, but I didn’t know exactly what the flashback scenes were going to show.

“There was a lot more detail in the scenes and more filming than I expected but I’m really pleased with what we have done.”



Since Corrie confirmed Seb’s comeback, another theory fans have come up with is that Simon Barlow (Alex Bains) could be the real culprit.

Simon was in hiding with Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) when the murder took place because he got involved with selling drugs.

The youngster is also best friends with Kelly, who could have called him in a panic when the attack took place.

Peter Barlow’s (Christopher Gascoyne) son has already been on the wrong side of the law, so there is a possibility that he came out of hiding to help his friend out.

Could Seb have been unconscious when Kelly called him and did Simon deliver the fatal blow that killed him to save his pal?

Coronation Street airs on Wednesday at 7.30pm on ITV.
