Coronation Street viewers were left with complaints surrounding the revelation that Corey Brent was solely physically responsible for Seb Franklin’s death
Coronation Street fans were complaining after the latest twist regarding Kelly Neelan on Monday.
The troubled blonde teen is currently awaiting her trial for the murder of Seb Franklin, for which she stands accused along with nasty former friend Corey Brent.
However, during Monday night’s double bill, viewers saw Seb’s girlfriend Nina Lucas experience flashbacks to what really happened on the night she and Seb were attacked.
Nina finally remembered everything and the fact that she saw Corey be the one to kick Seb to death as Kelly tried to stop him.
Despite Kelly’s pleas, Corey pushed her away and continued to beat Seb, causing wounds that would later result in his death in hospital.
After Corey left Seb’s bloody body in the street, Kelly checked on Seb and feared him dead before fleeing and not calling the authorities.
In the present day, Kelly was admitted to her lawyer and foster father Imran Habeeb that she didn’t think Seb would die and was scared of the trouble she would get in when she fled.
She said: “I wouldn’t have left him if I thought he’d …”
Despite the revelations, some fans at home were displeased with Kelly being presented as innocent in Seb’s death and still considered her complicit in the murder.
One person wrote on Twitter : “Why the hell didn’t Kelly immediately call for help instead of just tryna Corey off herself?
“Yea, she might still of got done herself due to actually being there in the first place but she wouldn’t be looking at potentially spending the rest of her life behind bars #Corrie ”.
A different fan commented: “ #Corrie Kelly still has culpability.”
Meanwhile, another viewer tweeted: “I still don’t think Kelly should be sent home without being charged with something.
“She was there. She slapped Nina. She was laughing and calling her and Seb names. She may not have murdered him but she didn’t exactly do much to help him – like call an ambulance? #Corrie “.
Elsewhere, another fan of the soap supported the Kelly storyline, writing: “Kelly isnt a sociopath, nor a murderer, she may have been guilty but she is sure as heck remorseful and wants to change to better the community, I hope she doesnt get sent down. She ain’t no Corey. #Corrie@itvcorrie ”.
Fans will have to wait and see if justice is done next week as the trial verdict rocks the street in the aftermath of the ruling.
