Coronation Street Wiki

Alison Rosemary Webster (née Wakefield) was the daughter of Bob and Joan Wakefield and sister of Cheryl, the second wife of Kevin and mother of Jake.


Alison never led a particularly happy life, weighed down by both her and her parents' guilt over the death of her younger sister Cheryl when Alison was still a child herself.

After Kevin Webster brought her back to Weatherfield over Christmas 1999, it seemed like a new start - she was pregnant and they married. However, the later stages of pregnancy and birth of Jake Webster was complicated, she passed a Group B Streptococcus infection onto him and he died the same day.

The burden of Alison's guilt proved too much, she cracked and walked out of the hospital with newly-born Bethany Platt. Kevin finally found her, but in the depth of her despair, she ran into the path of a lorry after handing Bethany to Kevin.
