Revealing his new makeover to his mother, Abi Franklin (Sally Carman), Seb asked her to “not laugh” or to take pictures.
Seb wore a black button-down blazer with matching clothes, eyeliner and long hair.
Abi teased Seb by likening her new look to a panda and a raccoon.
But later, she assured him to “own it” and stressed that he didn’t need to change for Nina.
Fans took to Twitter to share their stunned responses to Seb’s new image.
One fan said: “I just spit my tea on Seb.”
Another wrote: “Wow I have no words for Seb’s new look.”
One spectator said: “Gothtastic Seb!”
And another joked, “At least Seb in @itvcorrie could find a backup job for the Undertaker at Wrestlemania with WWE.”
In the episode, Nina told Seb that she had booked a hotel room for them after the concert.
However, Seb got cold feet and told him he couldn’t come anymore because he didn’t want to feel “in his place”.
After some advice from his mother, Seb told Nina that he would like to accept her offer if she is still available.
Seb also admitted how much he loved Nina, even though he was afraid of her and didn’t think he was confident or cool enough to be around her.
Later that week, Nina is heartbroken as she catches Seb mocking her goth subculture after admitting that she loves him.
The ITV soap opera revealed last year that there would be a tragic social realism scenario ahead this spring as Nina struggles to fit in.
Coronation Street continues Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. on ITV then on ITV Hub.
