Who is Carol Hill in Coronation Street?

Carol Hill was a homeless woman who first met Sean when he was forced to sleep on the streets in August 2018.

The character was introduced when she spotted Sean's tent in the park and asked if he was okay.

Sean then insisted he wasn’t homeless and gave Carol his tent, but when his plan to stay in a bedsit fell through, he had to go back and retrieve his tent.

Sean was later mugged in the public toilets and Carol accompanied him to the hospital where they became friends.

She returned to the role in May this year having seemingly turned her life around.

Carol then invited Sean into a homeless community.
