CORONATION Street’s Abi Franklin squirms as she lies about her criminal past in her first interview since leaving jail.
In an upcoming episode her potential employer spots a large gap in her CV and asks Abi to explain it – but her cover story falls apart.
Abi (Sally Carman) scrubs up well and looks the business as she heads in to her interview, charming the socks off the office manager.
Abi says she is up for any challenge, telling the woman: “I’m not sure if I can fix a photocopier but I’d give it a go.”
But just as things seem to be going so well, the lady asks about her past and why she hasn’t accounted for a huge period in 2016,
Instead of telling the truth about being in prison, Abi digs herself into a hole and tells her that she went travelling in Botswana.
And she replies: “Your CV seems to have some gaps on it, almost eight months in 2016, what challenges were you doing then?”
Abi is lost for words and blurts out: “Travelling, Botswana”
She adds: “Yeah I’ve always wanted to go, you just hear the word Botswana and you feel like you have to go there.”
Abi’s face says it all, and she is left sweating when the manager replies: “My sister said exactly the same thing, she lives there, I visited her last summer. Where abouts did you go?”

Unsurprisingly Abi is unable to name even one town in the African country, with her future employment left hanging in the balance.
Elsewhere, she is set to anger Carla Connor when she’s caught romping with her ex Peter Barlow in his boat.
Peter then makes a move on his ex-wife Carla, and actress Sally Carman thinks all hell could break loose between the two women because of the love triangle.
