Abi's husband Kevin soon steps in to explain what's happening, as he'd already spotted messages about this on an internet football forum.

Kevin reveals that Corey is playing for his prison football team and is making a name for himself with his skills.

Abi continues to watch the documentary, which paints Corey as a hero rather than an evil killer.

Afterwards, Abi teams up with Nina Lucas, who was Seb's girlfriend and the initial target of the fatal hate crime incident.

Abi and Nina both visit the TV company responsible for the documentary. They force their way into the producer's office and demand answers, but will their voices be heard?

Maximus Evans played the role of Corey between 2019 and 2021. Corey initially appeared as a minor guest character but his role grew over time, culminating in the hate crime storyline.

In November 2021, Corey was arrested and charged for the murder of Seb after six months of evading justice.

Writing on social media after his final scenes aired, Maximus commented: "And just like that... he was gone. Thank you all for the ride, it's been a blast. Over and out... for now."
