Coronation Street fans were left gobsmacked as Abi Franklin (Sally Carmen) was unveiled as Imran's mystery woman during the latest visit to Weatherfield.
The troubled lawyer, portrayed by Charlie de Melo on the ITV soap, recently confessed to his partner Toyah Battersby (Georgia Taylor) that he had a one-night stand on the night that his foster daughter Kelly Neelan (Mollie Gibson) was found guilty of the murder of Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni).
While Imran told Toyah that he had slept with a stranger, viewers suspected that he wasn't telling the truth and they were right.
Wednesday night's episode confirmed the identity of Imran's mystery lover was in fact Seb's mother, Abi.
The bombshell reveal was exposed when Imran met up with his mystery lover Abi under the cover of darkness.
Confirming that Toyah didn't expect Abi was the stranger in question, Imran said: "I just need to know if you're going to say anything to Kev?"
Abi sarcastically replied: "Oh yeah, I'm gonna shout it from the rooftops."
She later added: "I haven't got space for this in my head right now, I have bigger things to worry about so just back off."
Posting to Twitter following the tense exchange, Coronation Street viewers shared their shock at the revelation.
One viewer wrote: "Was not expecting Imran's one night stand to be Abi."
Another commented: "Imran hooked up with Abi…. well I didn't see that coming."
A third said: "OMG it was actually Abi that Imran slept with seriously?"
Meanwhile, a fourth viewer wrote: "Abi will end up pregnant and have a baby she’ll call Sebran"
"Imagine if Imran has got Abi pregnant," another concluded.
With both Imran and Abi keen to keep the secret, only time will tell whether Toyah and Kevin find out about the liaison.
Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV
