In recent weeks, Abi has had to come to terms with her twins moving to the other side of the world as well as suffering a severe injury while working.
However, although she appeared to be settling down more with boyfriend Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell), things are soon set to deteriorate.
Speaking to Express.co.uk and other press, Abi star Sally teased an upcoming rivalry between involving her character and Carla on the ITV soap.
Asked how the pair would fare in a fight with each other, Sally is convinced her alter-ego would come out on top.
The star said: “Oh, she’d kill her [Carla], she’d kill her!
“The thing is, Carla’s too refined and has too much self-respect in that way to really let herself go,
“But Abi is just like a little alleycat she’ll go for it. She’s got nothing to lose,” added the star.
Could things reach a nasty boiling point in the coming weeks and result in the pair facing a deadly showdown?
If Abi does take things too far and ends up leaving Carla for dead, how will she manage to move on from her serious actions?
Show boss Iain MacLeod has recently teased Abi and Peter’s blossoming relationship in the weeks to come.
However, he insisted the pair won’t be embroiled in an affair – but the nature of their close bond will have huge consequences for those in the street.
Iain explained: “Peter will also be mixed up in Abi’s story, we – rather I – sort of felt Peter and Abi’s chemistry performance-wise when they were in their short lift, fling back in 2019.

“They had such good chemistry that we always thought, ‘What an interesting opportunity? It’s something we could revisit later on.’”
He went on to detail why he decided to reconnect the pair and what it will mean for their future.
Iain continued: “So they both have substance abuse issues, and they will find common ground in the way they are going to deal with those substance abuse issues towards the end of the year.
“Basically, they’ll grow closer, and that will blow up in a fairly explosive way as we head into the winter and towards the 60th [anniversary].”
Keeping some ambiguity, he said: “It’s not what you think, they’re not going to have an affair. I know that might be the first question people have, but they’re not!”
However, their closeness is undoubtedly set to cause trouble for their respective partners.
Despite Abi’s partner Kevin generally remaining calm at the sight of conflict, Carla is sure to look for drama.
Could this end up proving a very bad decision for the Rovers Return barmaid if she underestimates how dangerous Abi can be?
