Coronation Street spoilers: Nina Lucas and Asha Alahan grow closer after school girl’s split with controlling Corey


NINA Lucas and Asha Alahan grow closer next week in Coronation Street after the school girl splits with controlling Corey.

The teens struck up an unlikely friendship after Nina - Mollie Gallagher in the ITV soap - defended her from bullies in the midst of her harrowing revenge-porn plot last year. 

Nina noticed Asha was being bullied after Corey’s naked video of her was shared in an online chat group by Kelly Neelan and then posted on a porn site, and punched one of the bullies to shut them up.

She also stood up for Asha in recent scenes when Corey mocked the choker she’d given her as a birthday present and told her it’d be better suited to a dog. 

Next week’s episodes of Corrie will see Dev confide in Nina about Asha, despairing that his teenager is still brooding over Corey. 

When Dev adds that her school work is suffering as a result, Nina suggests studying in the cafe.

Corrie has teased that viewers will later see a spark between the pair as Asha helps Nina out in the cafe.

Could a romance be on the cards?

Tanisha Gorey, who plays Asha, spoke to Digital Spy about the beginning of her friendship with Nina in the midst of the revenge-porn scandal. 

Asha Alahan is treated her like a dog by boyfriend Corey who threw food at her in Coronation Street

The actress said: "One of the unlikely people who steps forward to help Asha when she's going through this is Nina.

"A friendship develops between Asha and Nina – and I love that.

"Nina knows what it's like to feel different, left out and persecuted. That will develop and this story has a long way to go."
