Debbie Webster (Sue Devaney) has been incredibly supportive towards Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) in Coronation Street, but she ultimately decides enough is enough, and makes a huge revelation to Kevin (Michael Le Vell).
There was conflict aplenty when Debbie first returned to the cobbles, as Abi wasn’t keen on being quizzed about her problems.
However, Debbie had an ulterior motive in wanting to know all about Abi, as she wanted to ensure that the young woman wasn’t intent on messing Kevin around.
Speaking about Debbie’s intentions, actress Sue Devaney said: ‘Debbie is very clued up and she looks at people and susses them out. She doesn’t really take people at face value.
‘What she does is think that everyone has an ulterior motive, probably because she has herself. She thinks when people say something they actually mean something else, Debbie is very good at sussing that out.
‘She has a heart but she only has a heart for the right people, people that mean something in her life. She usually works on facts rather than feelings. People have to earn her respect and her love.
‘She does feel for what Abi is going through but right at this minute her concern is her brother, but she does think that Abi makes Kevin happy and they have got something together.’
Abi opened up to both Debbie and Kevin in subsequent episodes, and conflict ensues between she and Kevin next week. The couple ultimately resolve to start again — but Debbie is suspicious when she sees Abi meet up with Peter in the ginnel, and thus demands to know what is going on.
In spite of her suspicions, she seemingly refrains from telling Kevin what she saw. In regards to reason why Debbie remains shtum, Sue continued: ‘She is protecting her brother, she doesn’t want to upset him that is what it is.
‘She wants to get all the information first and know what is going on. She wants all the ammunition before she fires the gun.
‘What she is doing is buying the bullets. She is being very shrewd, if she is going to say something she wants to know that what she is saying is right before she says anything.’
However, things ultimately take a turn, and Debbie takes action — action which could have drastic consequences.
Sue said: ‘Debbie finds out that Abi has been seen with Peter again when she said she was somewhere else.
‘She has also promised Abi that she will never see Peter again so this is the moment when Debbie has had enough and her blood boils.
‘So Abi has now lied to her so this is the time to tell Kevin, it has gone on too long. She is furious that Abi has blatantly lied to her, she is not only trying to pull the wool over Kevin’s eyes she is doing it to Debbie too and she won’t stand for that.’
Coronation Street continues Monday September 21 at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
