Debbie Webster, played by Sue Devaney, is the daughter of Bill Webster, and younger sister of Kevin Webster. She made her first on screen appearance on 11 June 1984. Debbie departed seven months later on 9 January 1985.

Debbie is the younger sister of Kevin, and arrives in the street not long after her brothers' arrival. After leaving school with no qualifications, Debbie worked at Jim's Cafe. She dates biker Daz Isherwood much to her father's consternation. In January 1985, Debbie leaves Weatherfield and moves down to Southampton with Bill and his new wife, Elaine. Off screen, Debbie trained as a hairdresser.

In 2001, Kevin disappears in the run up to his then estranged wife Sally's wedding to Danny Hargreaves, and was discovered to have been staying with Debbie at her home in Southampton. Debbie was mentioned again in December 2009 when Kevin and Bill discuss Sally, now married to Kevin again, suffering from breast cancer, the same disease that killed their mother Alison and how it affected them both as children. The following year, after his daughter Sophie ran away from home with her lesbian lover Sian Powers, Kevin telephoned Debbie and asked her if Sophie had been in touch with her. In September 2011, Debbie telephones her eldest niece Rosie and informs her that she has bought a villa in Turkey and invites Kevin to visit her and bring his baby son Jack with him. Kevin goes to visit Debbie in November 2016.
