Toyah and Imran’s relationship in trouble?
Charlie De Melo, who plays Imran, has revealed Toyah and Imran are divided when it comes to Kelly.
When asked what goes through Imran and Toyah’s minds when Kelly is hauled into the the police station, Charlie said: “Initially they’re kind of a united front and they want to unquestionably be there to support her and do whatever they can.
“But as details of the attack become more and more apparent, as more and more evidence gets dug up, and more and more testimony is heard, the seriousness of it starts to cause a kind of fracture between Imran and Toyah.
The seriousness of it starts to cause a kind of fracture between Imran and Toyah.
“Imran stands by the fact that they’ve made a promise to this girl that they would be there, they would care, they would support regardless.”
Toyah struggles to support Kelly?
He continued: “Toyah’s stance on it is a bit more protecting like, ‘we may have signed up for those things, but we didn’t sign up for this. To be supportive of a child is one thing, but to be supportive of a violent person goes beyond the call of duty we’ve signed up to.’
“Imran’s a little more unblinking. And despite his own reservations, it’s a case of well, this is what he agreed to do, this is what he has to do.”
He added: “He’s a bit more rigid, and Toyah’s a little more reticent about the whole thing, and that causes a little bit of a fracture between them.”
Coronation Street airs on Mondays and Wednesdays 7.30pm and 8.30pm with an hour long episode at 7.30 on Fridays on ITV.
