Coronation Street viewers have praised Asha Alahan for bravely opening up on her kiss with Nina Lucas.
But could her recent kiss with Nina be the start of something new?
What did Asha say on Coronation Street?
During last night’s episode (February 3), Asha opened up about her kiss to dad Dev.
The teen (Tanisha Gorey) shocked her businessman dad (Jimmi Harkishin) by revealing she was about to go on a date with Roy’s niece.
However, Asha made it clear she didn’t want to put a label on her sexuality.
The conversation kicked off as Dev questioned his daughter whilst she got ready.
Asha explained: “It isn’t a boy, it’s a girl. It’s Nina from the cafe.”
Dev replied: “Roy’s niece Nina, the one who looks like she’s escaped the set of a Tim Burton film? Is she your girlfriend now?”
For the first time I feel I have a friend who really gets me
He then asked: “So what are you like a lesbian now? Not that there’s anything wrong with that.”
Asha stated: “People don’t have to label themselves anymore. I just like people. But in this case it’s a female person.”
The youngster later opened up on their kiss on Monday’s show, saying: “For the first time I feel I have a friend who really gets me.
“I can actually look you in the eye and say I’m happy.”
Meanwhile, Dev was nearly in tears by Asha’s confession.
He added: “That breaks my heart to hear. I should have done more.”
What did viewers think?
Corrie fans flocked to Twitter to praise the emotional scene.
One said: “I really commend Coronation Street’s storyline with Asha exploring her sexual identity.”
A second added: “Absolutely love this Nina and Asha storyline… they bring out the best in each other and that’s everything a relationship should be!”
In addition, a third wrote: “Asha looks so happy whenever she thinks or talks about Nina. Love is about accepting someone regardless of their quirks. I think Nina and Asha have equally kind and accepting hearts.”
