The two have not been in a relationship for long, but cracks are beginning to show as the pair’s differences become obvious. Asha (played by Tanisha Gorey) has been struggling with Nina’s (Mollie Gallagher) distant attitude since the two began dating. In scenes set to air on ITV’s Coronation Street next week, Nina confides in her uncle Roy Cropper (David Neilson), who advises her to “be honest” about her new romance. But could this lead to a confrontation between Asha and Roy?
After a frosty conversation with Nina in the café, Roy makes the teenager realise that perhaps she shouldn’t be with Asha if the two aren’t happy.
Next Friday’s episode will see Asha asking Nina if she is up for a fancy date that night, but Nina rejects her, suggesting they should keep it lowkey and simple.
“Pizza and a film. No hotels,” Nina asserts in a trailer clip for the episode. Upon seeing her girlfriend’s disappointed reaction, she explains: “Your dad’s been in, he thinks I’m rushing you.”
An annoyed Asha says: “Can’t believe dad’s ruined it,” but Nina snaps back: “You listening? I’m saying no, not tonight. You sprung it out of nowhere.”

Asha, who is just 15, has had a tough few years, with the tragic death of her mother in 2013 leaving her deeply affected.
Sunita Alahan (Shobna Gulati) died in a fire, leaving behind her two children and her husband Dev Alahan (Jimmi Harkishin). Following this, Asha was involved in some hard-hitting body image storylines as well as emotional scenes where she spoke to her father about her sexuality.
In 2019, Asha began applying skin beaching products in attempts to make her skin lighter, and when dev found out, Asha began counselling sessions to help her overcome her self loathing.
Asha soon began a relationship with her schoolmate Corey Brent (Maximum Evans), and after he broke up with her she suffered another blow when an online recording of her body she had sent to him was uploaded to a porn site.
Now that she has found some happiness with Nina, the break up could see her snap. With quirky Roy seemingly behind the decision to end their romance, Asha may well blame him.
Harmless Roy could become the victim of Asha’s frustrations – but just how far will she go?
Coronation Street fans have been calling for Asha and Nina to date for a very long time, hopefully, the writers can reconcile the pair and give them a happy ending in upcoming months.
Coronation Street continues on ITV on Monday, March 8 at 7.30pm.
