Coronation Street's Ruxandra Porojnicu confirms another return for Alina Pop and teases love triangle

Alina was last seen in December 2019

Ruxandra Porojnicu, who plays Alina Pop in Coronation Street, has confirmed her alter ego will return to Weatherfield and has teased a love triangle.

Alina was originally introduced last year as a nail technician who fell for Seb Franklin, however it turned out her employers were human traffickers.

Alina left Weatherfield in August last year, but briefly returned in December looking for Seb.

She was gutted when Amy Barlow told her Seb was now engaged to Emma Brooker, when in reality they had only just started dating.

But Ruxandra has confirmed Alina will be back once again.

Speaking to Inside Soap, the actress said: "I'm personally very excited to be able to tell Alina's story further.

"She was in love with Seb, and now he's with Emma, so it's exciting to see what's going to happen.

"There may be a love triangle!"
