Kate Connor (played by Faye Brookes) has been discussing her plans to go travelling with her friends and family in recent weeks.
Aware of Kate’s plans, Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent) will reportedly leave the cobbles with her ex-girlfriend after inheriting a large sum of money.
The restaurant manager’s aunt, Debbie Webster (Sue Devaney) returns to the cobbles to give Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) some bad news.
“Debbie’s return is tinged with sadness as she returns to tell her brother Kevin about a death in the family,” a source told The Sun Online.
“But it’s not all bad news as with the death Debbie has come into a huge sum of money and she wants to share the wealth.
“She hands over a cheque for £200k for Kevin and the kids.”
The insider revealed that when Sophie inherits the money she realises she’s not completely satisfied with her life on the Street and wants a change.
She reportedly realises she has the opportunity to join in on all of the amazing plans Kate has mentioned to her.
“She’s not fulfilled by her job and she’s growing tired of life on the street living with her dad and Jack,” the insider said.
“Sophie decides to ask girlfriend Paula to take a career break and go with her to see the world and she’s stunned when she agrees.”
However, at the last minute Paula Martin (Stirling Gallacher) tells Sophie she’s changed her mind leaving the former couple to go off into the sunset together.

Will the pair reconcile on their travels or could Sophie return to the cobbles broken-hearted?

Viewers found out Jan was a police informant last week but Eileen still believes he’s part of a human trafficking ring.
While Jan was told to flee Weatherfield, Eileen was kept in the dark.
However, it has now been reported the Coronation Street favourite will finally uncover the truth and flee the cobbles to be with him.
“She is going into witness protection and leave Weatherfield after it turns out Jan is not dodgy after,” a source told The Sun.
“She only tells Seb the real reason she’s going, but sees her mates like Liz and says her goodbyes without them knowing she’s actually leaving,” they added.
Coronation Street continues tonight at 7.30pm on ITV.
