Seb (played by Harry Visinoni) thought he’d finally found the one when he met Alina (Ruxandra Porojnicu) earlier this year on Coronation Street when attending a job at the nail bar where she had been working.
Little does Seb know, Alina is actually part of a modern slavery plot, subtly being weaved into scenes on the ITV soap with her boss Rachel (Verity Henry) clearly holding control over the young girl.
In an attempt to get to know Alina, Seb has been turning up out of the blue at the salon, much to the annoyance of Rachel who wants her worker to focus on dealing with actual clients than flirting with her boyfriend.
Recent episodes saw Alina break Seb’s heart to appease Rachel but when the young builder turned up at the salon to try and make amends, Alina was nowhere to be seen.
She's going to put Seb in danger
Rachel claimed she didn’t know where Alina was and back at home, Seb was comforted by fellow lodger at Eileen Grimshaw’s (Sue Cleaver) residence, Jan Lozinski (Piotr Baumann).
Although Jan gave Seb words of advice to let things be with Alina, the young builder does’t realise his landlord’s boyfriend knows more about Alina’s disappearance than he’s letting on.
There had been hints Alina and Jan knew each other when the pair came face-to-face when Seb began dating the nail salon technician.
Next week, it’s Seb’s mother Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) who tracks down Alina when she and friend Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dynevor) go to get their nails done.
It will appear Alina didn’t disappear at all, with Rachel clear setting up the her employee’s mystery absence to deter Seb from making a nuisance at the salon.
