CORONATION Street's Abi Franklin tries to get into the Christmas spirit, despite Seb's tragic death.
But unexpectedly, the mechanic played by Sally Carman is set to get a heart-warming surprise from her late son.
Seb, played by Harry Visinoni, passed away from several injuries in emotional scenes aired in two May, 2021, episodes of the ITV soap.
His death was a shocking twist for fans and followed a gut-wrenching attack.
The young man was horrifically attacked by a gang of thugs while out on a stroll with his girlfriend Nina Lucas (portrayed by Mollie Gallagher) who was also assaulted.
The couple were involved in a confrontation at the canal during which Seb was kicked repeatedly but was able to call for an ambulance.
While he was taken to hospital, he never regained consciousness following the attack.

The assault was carried out by Corey Brent (Maximus Evans), along with his friend Eli, and several others.
Millie Gibson's Kelly Neelan was also present during the attack which left Abi seeking justice for her son.
But as Christmas is on the horizon, the grieving mother attempts to get into the holiday spirit, thinking Seb would have wanted her to be happy.
An upcoming Coronation Street episode will see her urging Jack (Kyran Bowes) and Kevin (Michael Le Vell) to remain focused on their Christmas celebrations.
