Emmerdale’s Jai and Manpreet once starred together in Coronation Street

They played brother and sister in the soap

Soap viewers were left surprised after Coronation Street posted a throwback picture with two famous Emmerdale characters.

In last night’s episode of Corrie (May 3 2019) Dev received a call from his Uncle Umed to tell him that his Uncle Ravi is dying.

On Coronation Street’s Twitter page, a throwback picture was posted of Ravi with his children Vikram and Nita.

The post was captioned: “Who remembers Dev’s uncle Ravi? Here he is with Vikram and Nikra outside the corner shop! #Corrie #ClassicCorrie”.

Viewers were shocked to realise that Rebecca Sarker, who played Nita and Chris Bisson, who played Vikram now star in Emmerdale together.

In Emmerdale, Chris plays Jai Sharma and Rebecca plays Jai’s step-mother Manpreet Jutla.

Rebecca’s character Nita was on screen from January 1999 to May 2000 while Vikram was on screen from February 1999 till 2002.

During their time on the cobbles, Nita worked at the corner shop before working in Fresco’s supermarket.

She dated Steve McDonald for a short period of time before leaving for a new job in Scotland.

Vikram was one of the co founders of Street Cars along with Steve McDonald.

He was known as a bit of a womaniser and dated Leanne Battersby and Maria Connor. He even dated Candice Stowe but ended things upon finding out she was actually 14.

He left after he was forced to smuggle drugs into the country.
