Corries Kevin to be unveiled as dad of Abis baby as ITV soap exit confirmed

Coronation Street fans predict that Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) will be revealed to be Abi Webster's (Sally Carman) newborn baby.

The wayward character recently realised she was pregnant and experienced contractions after being abandoned at the side of the road by her dodgy pal Dean Turnbull.

Abi managed to get herself to the hospital, where she gave birth to a baby boy.

However, she quickly decided that she'd be an unfit mum to the new arrival and did a runner back to the cobbles, abandoning her son in the hospital.

Abi's partner Kevin recently turned his back on her after he discovered about her one night stand last year.

After her son Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni) was brutally murdered by Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) in May last year, Abi was determined to see justice served.

When the initial trial saw Corey found not guilty, Abi walked into the night hoping to score drugs to numb her unbearable grief.

Viewers later learned that Abi had a fling that night with Imran Habeeb (Charlie de Melo), who was also struggling after failing to prove foster daughter Kelly Neelan's (Millie Gibson) innocence.

The pair declared their one-off encounter as a moment of madness and vowed to keep the secret under wraps.

In January, Abi had cause to approach Imran once again when she thought she might be pregnant – but later covertly informed him that the test was negative.

From the dates Abi gave while she was in labour, it was clear to viewers that Imran is indeed the father, and definitely not husband Kev.

But with Imran blissfully unaware of the situation as he celebrates his engagement to Toyah Battersby (Georgia Taylor) – who knows he cheated but not who with – it looks like his settled family life is about to implode.

However, fans of the ITV soap predict a major paternity twist and think that Kevin will eventually be revealed to be the newborn's dad.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "I think Abi's baby will destroy Imran and Toyah but end up being Kevin's."

Another added: "Personally, I hope the baby is Kevin's."

A third person posted: "Let's hope the baby turns out to be Kevin's, one can hope eh."

While a fourth social media user said: "OMG Abi re baby calling it first big twist thinks it is Immran baby but will end up being Kevin as character Imrran leaving no way would he leave a baby."

It was revealed that week that Imaran actor Charlie De Melo has quit the ITV soap after five years starring as the Weatherfield lawyer.

Imran's final storyline has been teased by show boss Iain MacLeod, who told Metro: "It threatens to destroy Imran and Toyah’s relationship as Toyah does not know the full truth. It tests the bounds of Toyah’s forgiveness to the max

"Imran is forced to look in a mirror and consider himself and the man who he is – he could go to the dark side."

Among his biggest storylines in the soap have been sticking up for youngster Kelly Neelan (Millie Gibson) in court after she was wrongly charged with the murder of Seb Franklin, dating both Battersby sisters and dealing with the death of his sister Rana Habeeb.

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday on ITV at 8pm
