Seb was murdered by Corey Brent’s gang of thugs in a vile attack that left his girlfriend Nina Lucas hospitalised.
In tonight’s episode a grieving Abi blamed Nina for the attack, but later Kevin tried to comfort her by insisting the pain will get better.
And he told her about his wife Alison and son Jake who died – giving fans major flashbacks.
He told her: “I know it’s not the same, but when Jake and Alison died I felt the same – hopeless. It does get better, I promise you.”
Kevin married troubled Alison Wakefield in 2000, after his painful divorce from Sally.

Soon after Alison became pregnant but in a devastating twist their son Jake died just two weeks after being born with Group B Streptococcal infection.
Alison was plunged into a mental health crisis and kidnapped baby Bethany Platt before taking her own life.
Fans were stunned that Kevin remembered as he once infamously forgot about the loss – and told his friends that he had no idea what it was like to lose a child.
One wrote: “Kevin’s recovered from his Alison Amnesia. #corrie #coronationstreet”
A second said: “Aww, I was wondering if Kevin was ever going to mention Jake and Alison. #corrie”
However, another said: “I had to Google them. Apparently Kevin was married to Alison, they had baby Jake who died.
“Alison then kidnapped baby Bethany Platt and then after handing her back Alison killed herself by running in front of a lorry.
“I have no recollection of this storyline #corrie”
