Kate Connor (played by Faye Brookes) has been discussing her plans to go travelling with her friends and family in recent weeks.
Aware of Kate’s plans, Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent) will reportedly leave the cobbles with her ex-girlfriend after inheriting a large sum of money.
The restaurant manager’s aunt, Debbie Webster (Sue Devaney) returns to the cobbles to give Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) some bad news.
“Debbie’s return is tinged with sadness as she returns to tell her brother Kevin about a death in the family,” a source told The Sun Online.
“But it’s not all bad news as with the death Debbie has come into a huge sum of money and she wants to share the wealth.
“She hands over a cheque for £200k for Kevin and the kids.”
The insider revealed that when Sophie inherits the money she realises she’s not completely satisfied with her life on the Street and wants a change.
She reportedly realises she has the opportunity to join in on all of the amazing plans Kate has mentioned to her.
“She’s not fulfilled by her job and she’s growing tired of life on the street living with her dad and Jack," the insider said.
“Sophie decides to ask girlfriend Paula to take a career break and go with her to see the world and she’s stunned when she agrees.”
