Coronation Street’s Sally Carman has revealed whether her character Abi Franklin regrets her decision to abort her newborn baby.
Abi was taken to the hospital after initially collapsing in pain on the side of the road in the previous episode, after a play with drug dealer Dean.
Fans of the ITV drama were super curious as Sunday night’s episode ended with Abi realizing she was in labor and announcing that she was having a baby.
On Monday night, footage was taken from a previous episode of the ITV soap as Abi was left alone on the street, desperate to call an ambulance.
Abi was completely unaware that she was pregnant, actress Sally explained to The Mirror and other presses that there was no sign that she was pregnant.
In scenes that followed Sunday’s episode, Abi welcomed a baby boy about six months into her pregnancy.
The baby needed support and was taken to the care unit, but Abi, posing as Jennifer, soon snuck back home.
Clearly traumatized and shocked by the events, Abi left without telling anyone – leaving the baby in the hospital room.
Now, the actress Sally has revealed why Abi chose to run away after giving birth, while also confirming on Good Morning Britain that Abi would “be a jogger”.
Sally explains panic took over Abi, so she gave her a fake name when she was admitted to the hospital.
Speaking to The Mirror and other press, Sally revealed Abi won’t feel like taking care of her new baby is an option at the moment.
She said: “She was full of shame and guilt and she was in shock and not thinking straight.
“Again, she comes to what she knows when her back is against the wall, feeling negative. She’s in pain and despair, she’s panicking and that’s why she gave her a name. fake.
“She was worried that they would call the police on her and what would happen, she was completely emotionally overwhelmed.”
When she ran away and after the birth, she continued: “She didn’t believe she could properly care for him. In her view, she failed to have a baby and he just just born.”
“In her head she completely ruined the beginning of his life, and she had nothing to offer him.
“She has no home, no relationship, no prospects, no job, what can she do for this child but give it a chance by giving it up.”
Sally added: “She’s in denial, she thinks she can carry on as before. She’s not thinking straight. She’s being really bad emotionally, mentally and physically. He’s lost his mind.”
As for whether Abi believes she can take care of her son, she continued: “No because she doesn’t feel it’s an option, doesn’t help. She doesn’t want it, she can’t deal with it, she doesn’t have anything to offer.
“It’s closed, she’s proven three times she’s messed up, she doesn’t have it in her to open her heart in that wa, y just completely don’t go in for a minute for her.”
