Dev has at least four children

Do you remember them?!

Back in May Dev received the tragic news that his uncle Ravi was dying and decided to go and visit him in India.

Asha's behaviour had been getting out of control before he left, as she was sneaking off to parties and going on social media instead of revising for her GCSE exams.

Dev decided to take Asha and her twin brother Aadi to India with him in the hopes a change of scenery would do her good, and she would get to know her family and more about where she came from.

However, Dev returned last week with his daughter and revealed to Mary that Asha's behaviour hasn't changed.

He revealed she didn't want to leave the hotel room the whole time she was away and he soon broke down fearing that she was in trouble.

Despite Dev's concern for his youngest daughter, what about his other children? Has Dev has forgotten about them?

Just who are Dev's other children?

Fans of the show will remember Dev's daughter Shareen.

Shareen only made a couple of appearances - in 2005 and 2006.

When Sunita, Dev's late wife, was pregnant with Aadi and Asha, she tracked down Shareen after hearing Dev had fathered children by women who worked in his shops.

Sunita found Shareen working in Dev's Gorton shop.

She was shocked to see Shareen holding a baby and thought Dev had cheated on her.

However it turned out that the baby was actually Shareen's baby - making Dev a granddad.

Shareen has rarely, if ever, been mentioned since her appearance.

Amber is Dev's daughter who he had through an affair with another one of his shop workers, Ravinder.

Amber first appeared in 2005. Shortly after her mum moved to Finland with her new boyfriend and she moved in with Dev and Sunita.

Amber was on the cobbles until 2009 and again from 2011 from 2012.

During her time she proved to be trouble and it was clear she didn't get on with her dad and stepmum.

She also caused trouble with other cobbles residents as she kissed Sophie Webster, who was due to marry girlfriend Sian.

Amber eventually left the street and moved to London leaving her dad and half-brother and sister Asha and Aadi behind.

Since her departure, Dev hasn't mentioned Amber much.

Since they arrived back on the cobbles in 2009, Aadi and Asha have rarely been seen apart.

However, Dev recently returned from India without his son Aadi.

It seems like Asha is his priority at the moment, however, was it necessary to leave his son in another country?

Although Dev stated Aadi was staying with family, will he go back to India to pick his son up?

Will Aadi be returning in time for school?

Other children?

Dev had affairs with many of his shop employees over the years so the exact number of children Dev has is unknown.

But other children were referred to when Sunita discovered Dev had fathered Shareen and Amber, causing her to leave him.

Will Dev be getting a visit from any of them any time soon?

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
