Asha and Nina struck up a friendship last year after she defended her from bullies when she became embroiled in a revenge porn scandal. 

But next week the pair will grow closer as Asha starts her first trial shift at the cafe. 

Corey enters and begs her to hear him out, but Asha makes clear he’s dumped. 

Corey glares at Nina when she applauds Asha for telling Corey to get lost.

Asha later suggests meeting up in Victoria Garden and Nina tells her it’s a date. 

When Dev returns home he spots Asha dressed up and is surprised when she tells him she’s got a date with Nina.

Dev tells Roy about Nina and Asha’s blossoming romance, and Roy says he should be flattered that Asha felt able to talk to him about it. 

Later, when Asha invites Nina over for tea, Dev tries his best to make Nina welcome.

Corrie boss Ian MacLeod recently revealed there was a “heartbreaking” love story on the horizon for Nina.

He revealed: "There'll be a fantastic and unique love story for Nina, which might not entirely end up where you expect now. The love story will turn into a massive social issue story that deals with tolerance of people who are part of minority communities and don't look like everybody else.

He added: "It'll become a real talking point – how does the world view people like Nina in reality? When they're on Coronation Street, all of our characters take them under their wing – and the viewers have taken Nina to their hearts too.

"But in the real world, if you don't look like everybody else, sometimes that can be incredibly challenging. We're going to explore that a little bit in the show – to heartbreaking effect, I hope.

"That story draws in Roy, Abi and Kevin. It becomes a huge, emotive community story, with some of our favourite actors in the middle of it."
