CORRIE’S intense sex trafficking story line is set to take an another dark turn as Seb Franklin is lured into a trap, beaten and left for dead.
The teen is thrilled to get a message from his crush Alina asking him to meet her, but it’s actually Nikolai who is waiting for him.
Seb Franklin will be brutally attacked and left for dead in Coronation Street next week, as the truth about the people trafficking ring is finally revealed.
The teen asks his ex-girlfriend, Faye Windass, to pass a note to Alina at the nail bar. When another girl does her nails, Faye asks her to pass the note to Alina.
Seb – who’s played by Harry Visioni in the ITV soap – is delighted when he gets a text from Alina asking him to meet her at the salon after work.
But Seb gets a nasty shock when he arrives and is confronted by an angry Nikolai who brutally beats him up.
Later, evil builder Jan Lozinski, drives an unconscious Seb to hospital and leaves him in the A&E department.
Seb’s mum Abi – Sally Carmen – is horrified when she gets a call telling her that her son is in hospital, while Eileen Grimshaw calls Jan who tells her he’s working away in Birmingham.
Abi and Eileen rush to the hospital to see Seb. But will he be okay?
After visiting Seb, something starts to niggle Eileen and she quizzes Jan about the attack, but he is adamant he was in Birmingham.

Still troubled, Eileen – Sue Cleaver – heads to the salon where she finds Jan – along with Rachel and Nikolai – hurriedly putting the shop’s fixtures and fittings into the back of a van.
Later in the week, Alina visits Seb at No.11 accompanied by a support worker from the Salvation Army and reveals she’s leaving and being taken to a safe house.
The Sun Online revealed earlier this year how Seb and Eileen would get caught up in a harrowing trafficking storyline.
A soap source said at the time: “It’s a really gritty storyline but based on real issues thousands face in the UK every day.
“Coronation Street researchers have been working closely with the Salvation Army, which the government chose in 2011 to help those in need because of slavery.
“Since then more than 8,000 survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking have come in to their care.”
