"She 100% blames Nina at one point. She has got all this anger, grief and heartbreak and she needs somewhere to channel it," the actress told Digital Spy and other media on a Zoom call.

"She initially thinks if she finds out who has done it, that will help but it doesn't. She wants to know why it happened but obviously, there is no real answer to that. She is told it's because of the way Nina looks as they were attacked as part of a crime due to what Nina was wearing.

"Abi is impulsive and decides to blame Nina – she thinks if Nina didn't dress that way then Seb would be alive. Nina really gets it in the neck. Abi really goes for her."

Fans will also undoubtedly question whether Abi's grief over her son's death will lead her to relapse into drug use.

Coronation Street actress Jane Danson opened up about the heartbreaking death anniversary of her dad on the day she fainted during Dancing on Ice rehearsals. The 40-year-old actress appeared on Monday's Lorraine following her elimination on Sunday night, and told host Christine Lampard that she had passed out due to a "combination" of factors, including the grief of her dad's death anniversary.

"Just from what I have filmed already, it seems unlikely that it's going to happen," she said. "Kev and Sally are particularly worried that Abi might go back onto drugs and there are times where she says that it is something she thinks about constantly but it's not what Seb would have wanted, so she's not going to do that.

"I absolutely believe she won't. I think her focus will go from Seb to Nina. I'd love it if she transferred that love onto Nina as she's a bit of a lost soul."

Carman confirmed that the coming weeks will feature Abi on a relentless search for justice, as Corey desperately tries to cover his tracks.

"The impulsive, emotional creature that she is – there isn't a lot of emotional maturity going on there," she admitted. "It is not good. There are a few days where she tries to take matters into her own hands but luckily she is talked down. She is really trying to hook onto something the only way she knows how.

"Her heart has been ripped open and there is a lot of guilt there as she wasn't there when Seb was growing up. There is so much she has to deal with and she hasn't got a clue. She is reeling and Corey very nearly becomes a culprit of this a couple of times."

She discussed filming Abi's misery in the aftermath of losing her son: "With that kind of grief, there is nothing anyone can say or do. Weirdly that helped as you do have to go insular with it. It's actually easier than a love scene as with those, you need someone else to reciprocate it.

"Grief is so personal and no one else can understand that loss. It is something you can do [act] on your own and so that actually worked a treat."

On the importance of this hate crime storyline, the actress said: "Yes, it's an age-old story and I don't think it's ever going to go away. The more we can do about getting information out about it and opening avenues for people to talk and report hate crimes, the better.

"You can read a story about something happening to someone and it's not personal, but when something happens to a character on Corrie who you love, it becomes personal and it gives you a deeper level of empathy and awareness that these are people's daughters, brothers, sisters and it could impact anyone of us. It's a reminder to be kind, we are all just doing our best."

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm on ITV, with occasional Friday episodes airing for one-hour blocks at 7.30pm.

Anyone who has witnessed or experienced a hate crime is urged to call the police on 101, Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or visit the True Vision website. In an emergency, always dial 999.
