Coronation Street ‘s Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey) is set to have her life turned upside down when a racy video of her without any clothes on is leaked.
The 14-year-old will be at the centre of a new storyline, which begins on the ITV soap tonight (April 13).
Things start as Asha’s love interest Corey Brent (Maximus Evans), 18 asks her to strip for him while on a video call.
Images of her from the video will end up being shared from Corey’s phone and shown around.
Asha is left feeling not only betrayed, but also like her life is over.
In scenes that will air next week, a devastated Asha is comforted by her friends as some local lads tease her.
Meanwhile, brother Aadi is furious over the situation, and ends up in a fight.
Dad Dev also sees red when he hears about the video and blames Asha.
He then decides to report the situation to the police.
Talking about the storyline, Asha actress Tanisha, who is 17-years-on in real life, said: “It completely crumbles her, destroys her reputation, everything, people in the Street have seen her strip.
“Everyone has seen it and is talking about it. She is bullied at school, ends up moving school. Walking down to Roy’s Rolls, everyone is talking about Asha.”
The actress continued telling The Mirror: “At a school litter pick they are watching the video and they see me with my clothes off.
“So it is very personal. It is a bit like trolling they are participating in this act.”
Children’s charity chiefs hope the Corrie storyline will spare girls from real-life ordeals.
Soap bosses have worked with the NSPCC over the plot, with the charity said hundreds have suffered similar ordeals.
Filming on the soap has halted due to the current worldwide situation, but the show’s bosses have assured fans that many of the storyline plans will still carry on.
Coronation Street airs tonight on ITV at 7:30pm
