KEVIN Webster arrives back from holiday in Coronation Street next week to discover his mistake has earned innocent Gina Seddon a label as a thief.
Kevin – who’s been away with his little lad Jack over half term – feels guilty when Gina tells him how the money she collected to throw a surprise party for Sally Metcalfe went missing and now everyone thinks she’s a thief.
Gina – who’s played by Connie Hyde in the ITV soap – is so upset when Sally calls her a thief that she decides to go and stay with a friends in Newcastle indefinitely.
She’s stunned however when Kev – Michael Le Vell – confesses that he took the money, thinking it was a present from his daughter Sophie to pay for the holiday.
Gina is delighted when Kevin says he’ll help her clear her name and heads over to the Rovers with her.
He explains to Sally, her husband Tim, Beth Tinker and Carla Connor that he took the money by mistake and that Gina isn’t a thief. Will they eat humble pie instead of hotpot?
He then begs Gina to think twice about leaving Weatherfield and even offers her a bed at his house for as long as she likes.
Gina’s grateful for his kindness. Could love blossom for Gina and Kevin at No.13?
Factory worker Gina wanted to make amends with Sally for trying to seduce Tim while she was in prison.
She decided to throw a surprise party for her sister and started a collection.

But it went horribly wrong when she put the envelope of money through Kevin’s door for Sophie and Kev pocketed it, thinking it was for him.
And if Corrie fans are right, Gina doesn’t have much time left to win Sally over. Viewers are convinced she’s the ‘beloved character’ set to die in upcoming scenes when the roof of Underworld collapses.
The soap recently announced a beloved character would perish in a factory collapse that will turn out to be intentional.
And fans are fearing it will be Gina just after she manages to get Sally to forgive her.

A second said: “I reckon that Gina on #Corrie will go from pariah to hero – only to then get killed off in the factory roof collapse later this year. That’s my guess.”
