Coronation Street fans baffled as Aadi Alahan appears to have aged 10 years

Aadi was recast this year

Coronation Street fans were left baffled as Aadi Alahan has appeared to have aged by 10 years pretty much overnight.

Recently Corrie announced the role of Dev’s son Aadi has been recast and new actor Adam Hussain would be taking over the role from previous actor Zennon Ditchett.

In last night’s episode (Wednesday, April 15), Adam made his debut on the soap.

As Dev taught him about stock rotation, Aadi turned to his dad and said: “Dad I said I’d help out for a couple of hours. This isn’t the Lion King.”

But as Dev went out the back and customers left the shop, 14-year-old Aadi quickly pinched a bottle of alcohol off the shelf.

After Aadi’s first scene, viewers were left baffled, saying Aadi now looked about 25.

But as a fight kicks off, Mary struggles to break them up.

After Dev finds out about the video, he confronts Asha but she makes him swear not to go to the police.

Dev reluctantly agrees, but when Aadi tells him the video was posted on a porn website, Dev goes to the cops.

Asha is furious that her dad has gone back on his word. Will the police discover who really shared the video?

Coronation Street’s scheduling pattern has changed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The soap now airs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm.
