What’s next on the cobbles?
Next week on Coronation Street, it’s an eventful time for Abi as she finds herself in terrible danger twice.
Elsewhere, Gary faces a new crisis as Rick’s death is revisited, while Michael shocks his family by trying to bring Grace back to the cobbles.
Here’s a full collection of 14 big moments coming up.
1. Abi blows her final chance with Kevin
Abi struggles with her grief when Seb’s birthday arrives. At the same time, Kevin returns from his holiday with Jack and tells Debbie that he’s prepared to make amends with Abi.
When Kevin returns home, he’s horrified to find Abi and her dodgy friend Dean looking cosy on the sofa together while high on drugs and alcohol. This is a step too far for Kevin, who tells Abi to pack her things and leave.
2. Abi is abandoned in her hour of need
Dean shows his true colours by stealing Kevin’s keys for the garage. He tries to steal a customer’s car, but Abi catches him in the act and jumps into the vehicle to stop him.
Dean is too quick for Abi and races off with her still inside the car. The situation takes a worrying turn when Abi suddenly experiences agonising pain.
Abi crouches by the side of the road when Dean lets her out. Rather than helping, Dean speeds off and abandons Abi.
3. Tyrone accuses Abi
Abi returns to Number 13 after her medical emergency, but Debbie assumes that she’s drunk and warns her to be out by the end of the day.
Tyrone is concerned when he finds that one of the cars is missing from the garage. He spots Abi with a bag of alcohol and suggests that she must have had something to do with it.
4. Abi faces another incident
Abi realises the implications of Dean’s actions when Tyrone warns that the business is finished if they don’t retrieve the stolen car.
Abi meets up with Dean at his lock-up, then tries to outsmart him by calling the police. Dean overhears her secret plan and it seems that Abi is in danger.
Later, when Toyah calls Abi’s phone, a paramedic answers and explains that she has been in an accident. What will Toyah find when she arrives at the hospital?
5. Abi’s downward spiral continues
Abi’s disastrous week rumbles on when she’s woken up one morning by the sound of police officers arriving at her front door.
Once Abi has spoken to the officers, she decides to get herself some more drugs.
6. Adam has to take a step back at work
Adam struggles to convince Sarah and the police that Lydia has framed him for supposedly trashing her flat.
The solicitor’s woes also continue to affect him at work, as a client decides to take his business elsewhere due to the damning online reviews that have been left about Adam’s conduct.
Adam later learns that he has been reported to the Solicitors Regulation Authority and could be struck off in a worst-case scenario. He decides to step down from the firm while he concentrates on clearing his name.
Enjoying every second of Adam’s problems, Lydia tells him that she hasn’t finished her destructive behaviour yet.
7. Nick worries about Sam’s chess playing
As Sam has struggled with Roy beating him at chess so often, the kind-hearted café owner arranges for him to face Brian as an easier opponent.
Just when things are looking up for Sam, a concerned Nick discovers that he has fallen behind on his schoolwork. Aware that Sam’s chess playing has become his priority, Nick bans him from enjoying his hobby for a while.
Nick later explains his reasoning to Gail, suggesting that Sam is using chess as a distraction from having to deal with his mum’s death.
8. Leanne goes against Nick’s wishes
When Leanne hears Brian praising Sam’s passion for chess, she decides that the schoolboy shouldn’t have to give up something he loves.
Leanne lies to Nick by pretending that Sam is going to an after-school club. Nick is relieved that Sam will be mixing with children his own age, but in reality, he’s back playing chess with Roy in the café.
9. Kelly struggles with her responsibilities
Kelly confides in Simon about how she’s finding it difficult to juggle taking care of Laura, attending school and working her shifts at the barbers. Simon suggests that Kelly should speak to Gary and Maria, but she’s reluctant to do so.
Things come to a head for Kelly when Maria needs her to do more shifts than usual at the barbers. Kelly fails to turn up for one when Laura suffers a fall, and Maria is furious as she doesn’t know the reason why.
Simon steps in by explaining all to Gary and Maria, who later speak to Kelly about what’s going on.
10. Laura’s PI plan worries Gary
Laura informs Gary that she plans to hire a private investigator to finally track down Rick. She hopes to get her hands on his money to help secure Kelly’s future.
Gary thinks quickly by offering to sort out a PI for Laura. He recruits Lenny, instructing him to pretend to track down Rick while secretly making no progress whatsoever.
Laura unwittingly manages to thwart Gary’s plan by hiring her own PI. She tells him that Gary was the last person to see Rick alive, leaving Gary with some awkward questions to answer.
11. Emma keeps a secret from Faye

Later, Daniel tries to concentrate on his relationship with Daisy by suggesting that they should go on holiday together.
