Asha resorts to skin lightening in Corrie

We’ve seen Dev Alahan’s (Jimmi Harkishin) 14-year-old daughter Asha (Tanisha Gorey) in Coronation Street recently develop some behavioural issues before she went to India with Dev and her brother Aadi (Zennon Ditchett). Soon when they return from India, we discover a dark reason behind what has been troubling Asha with potentially life changing consequences for the teen.

Already Asha has angered Dev when she didn’t turn up for an exam due to being too upset over a boy that she fancied who was actually interested in her friend Amy Barlow (Elle Mulvaney) and spent more time on social media platforms instead of revising.

Dev returns from India with only Asha and tells Mary (Patti Clare) she has been an absolute nightmare and he is at his wits end, Mary vows to get to the bottom of what is troubling Asha.

Mary tries to bring Asha out of her shell, but what is the teenager hiding? Asha returns home and assures Dev she’s had a lovely day. When she drops her bag and the contents spill out, she quickly scoops up a tub of skin-lightening cream hoping Dev hasn’t spotted it.

Asha begins bleaching her skin with the cream she bought from India, and then will begin buying the product online.

In an important storyline that raises awareness for an incredibly important issue, just how far will Asha go?
