Why did Alina Pop leave Coronation Street?
Alina left the cobbles in August after her involvement in Corries harrowing modern slavery storyline came to a head.
Seb realised that the teen was a victim of a human trafficking gang after Alina kept ghosting him.
He later sneaked into the nail bar and was horrified to discover the poor conditions she had to both live and work in.
Seb overheard Rachel telling Alina she needed to start behaving if she wanted to earn money to send home to her family, and Seb realised she and her husband were people trafficking.
Alina had been brought over and forced to work in the chain of beauty salons.
Seb was determined to take action but he bit off more than he could chew as the gang bundled him into a car and kidnapped him.
Alina was later forced to say goodbye to Seb as she announced she was going back to Romania.
Seb was heartbroken and gutted to see Alina go.
