Coronation Street spoilers follow.
Coronation Street will air emotional scenes between Nina Lucas and Abi Franklin next week, as they prepare to say goodbye to Seb Franklin at his funeral.
Nina (Mollie Gallagher) has been facing a difficult time after she was attacked by Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) and his accomplices, who'd mocked her for dressing as a goth.
Nina's boyfriend Seb (Harry Visinoni) was also attacked, and he later died from his serious injuries.
Since then, Nina has made the decision to stop dressing in her usual clothes and make-up, after Seb's mother Abi blamed her for his death. Nina also got rid of her dresses, but Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey) has been keeping hold of them in case she changed her mind.
In upcoming scenes, it appears that Abi will have a change of heart.
However, before that happens, George Shuttleworth reveals that Seb's funeral is about to go ahead – and Nina is devastated when she realises that Abi didn't tell her.

Asha feels bad for Nina, as it's obvious that Abi didn't want Nina at the funeral because she's still blaming Nina for Seb's death.
On the day of the funeral, Nina overhears Asha speaking to Corey, telling him she'd like to get back together with him.
A devastated Nina is disappointed with Asha's decision, and reminds her that Corey killed Seb.
Asha continues to stick with her plan and defends Corey, leaving Nina feeling further upset by her apparent betrayal. Asha tries to reassure Nina and reminds her that they're still friends and that it isn't how it seems.
Meanwhile, Abi has a chat with Nina's uncle Roy Cropper and she comes into the cafe with Nina's bag of goth dresses.
Abi tells Nina to put one of the dresses on, so that she can attend Seb's funeral dressed as the Nina he loved.
Will Abi's gesture be a turning point for Nina, and will she embrace who she is once more?
Coronation Street airs these scenes on Monday, May 31 at 9pm on ITV.
