What’s ahead for Alya? (Picture: ITV)
Coronation Street star Sair Khan has confirmed a brand-new storyline for her character Alya Nazir.
Most recently, Alya has tried to make amends with gran Yasmeen (Shelley King) after Zeedan’s (Qasim Akhtar) money laundering was revealed.
Zeedan’s father-in-law, Hashim, blackmailed him into laundering money through Speed Daal.
After the fire at the restaurant, Hashim – once again – threatened Alya and Zeedan over the money.
But when he collapsed, Alya, Ryan (Ryan Prescott) and Zeedan delayed calling an ambulance, leading to Hashim’s death.
As Alya continues to rebuild her relationship with Yasmeen, Sair has been speaking about what’s ahead for her character.

‘Well my dream storyline, actually, I think it might just be about to happen! I had a chat with the producer last week and we’re taking things in a really different direction’, she told Daily Star.
‘Something really unexpected happens and it changes Alya’s perspective on everything, so it’s a future that wasn’t expected but I’m really excited about it.’
‘Everyone’s got secrets, haven’t they? Everyone’s got a few demons in the closet’, she continued.
‘The great thing about our producer Iain [MacLeod] and wife Verity [assistant producer] is they love to speak to you about your character, they love hearing your ideas.’
