In a huge hate-crime-exploring storyline by Coronation Street, the young couple were targeted because of Nina’s (played by Mollie Gallagher) goth style, with Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) and Kelly Neelan (Millie Gibson) initially making jokes about her look, before things escalated and they – along with a few other teenagers – chased them before starting a savage physical assault.

Wednesday’s episode saw them both being thrown to the ground and kicked, and the next thing, their relatives were told to head to the hospital to be with them.

Nina’s uncle Roy Cropper (David Neilson), who is usually private, displayed a touching display of emotion towards Nina.

Watching her in the hospital bed, he said: “I much prefer my own company but after Hayley, I didn’t enjoy being on my own so much.

“I’ve had a number of house guests since – people seeking refuge for whatever reason. On the whole, I’ve enjoyed the company but inevitably they leave after they’ve repaired, recovered, recuperated – they leave.

“And after they do the silence of the evening can be a little overwhelming.

“Of course, I’m very fortunate. More fortunate than others. The café affords me interaction and I like to think that I have a number of good friends in my life – no family.

“I don’t have family, other than you. If you can forgive me, I give you my word that I’ll never let you down again and I will look after you to the best of my ability.”

Spoilers have confirmed the two are badly injured and Nina will fight for her life. But could Seb’s fate be worse?

His mother Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) was also in shock following the news and sat with her fiancé Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) beside Seb’s hospital bed.

“He’s a bloke now,” she said. “He’s a grown man, but he’s still my little lad.” And at that moment, the monitors began to buzz as Abi and Kevin were pulled out of the room and doctors rushed in.

“Is it alright, is he going to be alright?” Abi cried as she was led away from the room. The credits rolled as she broke down in tears.

Writers based the storyline on the horrific murder of Sophie Lancaster in 2007, he was killed by a group of teenagers who attacked her for being a goth.

Speaking to Express.co.uk and other publications, Sophie’s mother, Sylvia, talked about how she has been working with the soap to explore the plot.

“You can imagine, can’t you? You’re sat there one day, Wednesday afternoon and you get an email from Coronation Street that says ‘we’d like to speak to you’.

“You can’t believe it really.” She also talked about how she had spoken to Nina actress Mollie.

“It was lovely to speak to Mollie, and to see also that she’s actually quite alternative herself when she’s not playing Nina.

“Interestingly, people have taken Nina to their hearts, and that’s lovely to see.

“People are looking behind the image, behind the clothes, and are seeing the person.

Talking about the moving scenes to come, Sylvia was asked about her initial reaction when she found out her daughter Sophie had been attacked. “I couldn’t believe it,” she said. “Why on earth would somebody want to attack that girl, who was so pleasant, so kind, so caring?

“It just didn’t make any sense. And I think that’s your initial reaction.”

With the episode ending on Seb taking a turn for the worst, is it possible he may not recover from the horrific ordeal?

And if Seb was to die, what would this mean for both Abi and Nina?

Viewers were quick to respond to the tragic episode, with one taking to Twitter to write: “This second episode of #Corrie has been done beautifully. The script. The direction. Just everything. An incredibly powerful and emotional half hour of television.”

Another said: “Was a heart wrenching scene when roy was talking to nina.” (sic)

“Tonight’s #Corrie was intense but also very real life! Love Nina’s character too!”

Whatever happens, viewers will be hoping to see the attackers brought to justice.

Coronation Street continues on Friday at 8p on ITV.
