However his plan was foiled when Abi rejected him – and told him why.

She revealed her plan to snatch Alfie from his dad Imran and flee abroad with him for a new life.

Kevin was, at first, horrified – but then tried to talk her out of it.

And when he ran into Imran, Kevin looked like he was about to spill the beans.

But after giving Imran a shouting match, Kevin decided to keep quiet and let Abi snatch baby Alfie and flee the country.

Turning up at her door, Kevin begged Abi to let him in.

“I wanted to give you this, it’s an advance on your wages and a bit extra,” he said handing over an envelope.

“I hope it will help. I don’t want you to go but I know why you’ve got to. 

“You’re right – I’d be the same if I was in your shoes.”

He added: “I couldn’t tell Imran, I love you too much. 

“We’ve been through a lot together, you and me and when you look back on what we had I want you to remember how good we were, and not how I ruined the only chance of you being with your son.”

“I will,” said Abi. 

“I’ll never forget what you’ve done for me. I know it’s not worth much but I love you too.”

Kevin then asked her to keep his name out of it if she gets caught – and left.

But viewers cannot believe Kevin would agree to cover it up like that.

One wrote: “Jeez Kevin have you no self respect? #Corrie.”

A second said: “That was obvious that Kevin would come round to Abi #Corrie.”

Another added: “What’s the right thing to do kevin? How about not tell your sister who hates abi as much as imran does? Never tell Kevin a secret.”
