Abi (played by Sally Carman) was placed in the frame for tampering with Michelle Connor’s (Kym Marsh) car, which led to deadly repercussions on Coronation Street.
Little did she know it was actually Tracy (Kate Ford) who had caused the malfunction and let Abi take the blame as she feared life behind bars.
The arrest led Abi to lose custody of her young twins and as a result, she returned to drink and drugs to ease the pain of her troubles.
Recovering from the collapse, Tracy told Abi the truth and in turn, the distraught mother told her son Seb which led him to trash Tracy’s flower shop on the ITV soap.
I will destroy your family one by one
Desperately trying to save her son from time behind bars, Abi took the fall and was once again questioned by the police.
Abi was furious with Tracy for letting things get to this point after she was released, but Tracy later found out it was Seb who was the guilty party in this instance.
After learning the truth, Tracy turned up at No. 11 to tell Abi she knew about Seb, which left the mother seething the truth could be revealed.
“I get that you’re trying to protect Seb, but you have to tell them it was him,” Tracy told Abi after she was pulled through the doorway.
Tracy then tried to justify her reason for trying to set Abi up, however the distraught mother wasn’t having any of it.
In a fit of rage, Abi threw Tracy up against the wall and told her: “You tell anybody it was Seb, anybody, and I will destroy your family one by one starting with Amy.”

Abi continued her threat: “Oh yeah, I’ll do it alphabetically. Now get out,” she screamed with Tracy left shaken by the encounter.
However, will Abi stay true to her threat and take the mother out for good?
With her life crumbling around her, Abi may believe she has nothing left to lose and murder Tracy so her son can live free.
In upcoming episodes, Abi will take to court to hear whether her actions to protect Seb will land her a stint behind bars.
Will she get the chance to take her revenge or will she be joining Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dynevor) in jail?

Strongly opposing the idea, Leanne told Simon she would stop any chance of him joining the forces, to which he hit back: “You’re not even my real mum.”
Trying desperately to deter Simon from singing up, Leanne consoled in Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) about her fears.
He arranged for ex-serviceman Gary Windass (Mickey North) to talk Simon out of his decision, but the discussion only gave him more food for thought.
Does this mean Leanne will be waving goodbye to her son?
Coronation Street continues Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
