Fans were horrified as the bully mocked a choker Asha had received as a gift from Nina and compared her to a dog for wearing it.

Next week, Corey is furious to discover he’s been replaced by Nina and ends up insulting both of them before storming off. 

Asha isn’t bothered by his behaviour and is pleased to see the back of him. 

However, when Asha plans a surprise night away in a hotel for Nina, it’s clear she’s unsettled by the gesture. 

Nina then tells Asha that it might be better if they stay mates. 

Asha is devastated by the rejection and tells Kelly and Summer they should buy some pills and get wasted. 

Later, Kelly persuades a reluctant Simon to supply them with some pills. 

But disaster strikes when Asha and Summer find her unresponsive after taking one and ring an ambulance. 

Dev is fuming when he discovers what’s happened and marches into the cafe to accuse Nina of being involved with Kelly’s drug taking. 

Nina explains that she and Asha aren’t together anymore – and that she has no connection to the drugs.

Will Dev’s accusation drive a wedge further between Asha and Nina?

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."
