Wednesday night’s instalment of Coronation Street saw Asha (played by Tanisha Gorey) devastated as explicit footage of her stripping for boyfriend Corey was shared amongst her friends. Coming episodes will see the video make its way online and Asha will be left feeling helpless and alone. However, actress Tanisha has revealed she will find support from an unexpected person – Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher).

Details of Nina’s past have been kept under wraps with viewers only seeing her struggle with her father’s death before moving in with Roy Cropper (David Neilson).
Nina hasn’t had the easiest of times settling in on the street and is yet to make many friends.
But when she sees Asha struggling with the fall out from the explicit video going viral, Nina will reach out to support her.
Could Nina be about to reveal she has been through a similar experience giving viewers more of an insight into her life?

Speaking of the friendship, actress Tanisha teased: “I don’t want to give too much away, but there’s quite a lot of stuff leading on from this.
“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.”
Tanisha added to Digital Spy: “That will develop and this story has a long way to go.”
Amy Barlow (Elle Mulvaney) has been a good friend to Asha and had an unexpected pregnancy last year so can sort of relate to her.
But if Nina has been shamed online, Asha could find herself spending more time with Roy’s niece.
Furthermore, Asha has struggled with her body image – and even recently tried skin bleaching – so Nina could help her to come to terms with what she is going through.
Asha isn’t the only one going through a tough time in Weatherfield as Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) was horrified when her son Ollie had a seizure.

The youngster was rushed to hospital and the family are waiting for clear information on what happened.
However, Leanne was far from happy when she learned his father Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) had left the tot with Summer Spellman (Matilda Freeman).
Panicking Leanne could stop him from seeing his son, Steve went to speak to Imran Habeeb (Charlie de Melo) for advice on how to avoid losing him.
But when Steve revealed his plans to Leanne, she was angered further.

“What’s this? Maxwell Newton Family Law? A solicitor Steve – are you kidding me?” she asked after she’d had dinner with Steve and Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford).
Could Leanne decide the best thing for her young son is to take him away from Weatherfield so she doesn’t lose him to Steve?
While Steve is making it clear he wants to continue shared custody with Leanne, he doesn’t have a great case given he left the young boy alone.
Coronation Street airs tonight on ITV at 7.30pm.
